Default Shiloh National Battlefield

These pics are totally untouched other than resizing. I'm a newbie but wanted to share a few of my pics from my recent visit to this very neat place.

Looks like a nice tranquil spot for some creative photography.
I suspect the "HDR" club would like to meet here...

Ironically, battlefields like this one, with all their loss of life can be amazing locations for photography. Seeing your images brings back memories of my trip to Gettysburg and Fredericksburg last spring. I was quite struck when looking at the grave markers in the Confederate Cemetery at Fredericksburg to see how young so many of the soldiers were. Thanks for sharing.

Regards

I would love to accompany the HDR club. In fact, I would love to piggy back with anyone that knows what they are doing. We hired a tour guide and I felt rushed all day.

This place is amazing beautiful, yet so tragic in history. There were nearly 90,000 in battle and one in three were casualties. The formal cemetery is almost totally Union soldiers except for two graves where confederates were mistakenly buried. Most of the Confederates were buried in mass graves because they were the "rebels".

Just as it was at Gettysburg, there were plenty of "what ifs". The Confederate general was killed on the first afternoon. Grantwas pushed back to the river with no where to go.

Michael Shaara, who wrote Gods and Generals is about to release a new book on the battle. If you are a historian, it ought to be a good read. Lastly, anyone that needs a ride from Memphis that doesn't mind a newbie desperate to learn, pm me!
