taking a break from clearance patrol in iraq,..inside the mouth of an iraqi bunker

I am a keen amateur, and have been lucky enough to have been published in the books "Dusty Warriors’ and ‘Op.Snakebite’. I’m currently using a 5d mk2, 24-105L,50 1.4, 50 1.8, 580EX2, 2x 420EX,st-e2, amongst other bits and pieces.

    Phillip…..as a mother, (and one of my son’s was in the Australian army for 20 years…technical…cartographer) I look at this image and wonder about their Mum’s. I never had to worry about my boy…I can only hazard a guess at what they must go through knowing the danger their boys face every day. This is such an amazing shot….their exhaustion is so apparent. I wonder how a body can maintain itself with all the clobber they have to carry in all that heat. I hope the term ‘boy’ doesn’t offend you…but to mum’s that’s what you are…our boys :-)
    God bless you.

  • thanks chris, i know exactly what you mean, my mother says the same :)
