And some more from Morag Sutherland just taken at Easter.

Some close-ups of one of the bronze lions







And a shot of some weary folk from East Sutherland half way through a whirlwind trip to the old Western Front. It gives some scale to the whole memorial - statue, pedestal, lions and steps.


Thanks

Adam

The memorial is really hard to get a detailed photograph of due to the black paintwork. I have been visiting it for years but still haven't been able to do a decent image.
