Vimy Ridge 8

Vimy Ridge is a famous place and monument in France. It is dedicated to Canadians as they were able to take ground that was kept by the Germans in World War I. It was thought to be impenetrable and unbeatable and yet the Canadians did it. It was part of the Battle of Arras in the Pas-de-Calais Region of France. 

This monument is 30 meters high and was designed by Walter Seymour Allward. It was unveiled in 1936 by King Edward the VIII. It was restored in 2007. Did you know that when you are on those grounds, you are back in Canada? I love this series of photos that I took because to me, it means a great deal and I honour those soldiers who fought and lost their lives for our freedoms. 

This image is part of a series dedicated to Vimy Ridge. There are 14 in total. This is number 8.

Beauty Amongst Deadwood

I love the flow of the wood in the lower left-hand quadrant as it once had lived and now has died. I enjoy the fact that despited that new flowers are growing once again amongst the deadwood bringing new life.

The photograph was taken in the Interlake Region of Manitoba just west of Riverton.
