Normandy:


Pegasus Bridge - the original one, moved and rebuilt in the backyard of the memorial near the river crossing.


Pointe du Hoc - From the German point of view initially, and the 2nd Ranger Battalion, ultimately.
Pointe du Hoc - As you can see, the place still bears the scars of battle.


Old Glory at Omaha Beach.


The National Guard monument at Omaha Beach.


Omaha Beach.


Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, Colleville-sur-Mer. A truly stirring place.

Thanks for posting that link, Mycroft. It's tragic when an historic site is destroyed. What was even more tragic was some of the cold and callous comments posted by some of the people who read the article.

Thanks for the great pics (and all the rest that you do!)

It was 30 years ago, but we also found the locals in Normandy, and also around Verdun, to be very freindly to Americans.

Your photos all seem to have a very distinct look (which I like a lot) - almost a mild sepia tone. How can I get that? What do you do?

Thanks again.
