Default Sunday trip

I had finaly some time this Sunday for being on the road and taking some pictures from what I saw. All pictures are related to WO I and are part in Belgium and France.

First stop was in Ploegsteert (Belgium).
Here I saw a British Military Cemetery, Round shape with two different lions next to it.










Was a short visit and did go back on the road now accros the border to Fromelle (France) where the Australian Memorial Park is. This is statue and a bunkers that has been blown up from beneath it. It is now laying up-side-down because of this.






Now after this I was heading to the last place to visit, this because it was such a cold day with a lot of wind. So not really fun to be outside.
Next place is a Church that had been bombed and been left in this status as remembrance. This church calls: Notre-Dames de Lorette.











After this last place it was time for going back home.
I hope you all like the pictures I made on this little trip.

Thanks for posting those Lordje. Nice series of shots and an informative look at a historical period. Both interesting and informative. Well done.

Excellent shots Lordje, Interesting day out for you. Hope you found some hot coffee afterwards.

I'd like to take that trip one day. What's interesting as well, I'd just picked up a book in the library this morning about the Battle of the Somme. Good timing

Thank you Steve, it happens lately not much that I get some time for making pictures. Was also fun to be able to post some pictures again.

Yes when coming home there was some warm coffee and some sweet things .
Verdun is still about 300Km away from the Church you see in my pictures.
If you plan to go on a trip to Verdun give me a sign, my father in law is a specialist in WO I and he has been last year on a trip for about a week in the region of Verdun. So maybe I can help you in tips for what to visit certainly. If you would come to the place where I was you should certainly visit Vimy, there is a huge monument, a have to see it place.

Thank you Gary, was indeed photo-wise a good weekend. Allmost all pictures a made with the 14-54 II lens. Since that lens is pretty new for me some learning but it did deliver good and sharp pictures.

Thanks Lordje. If we get through this 'ressession' and get back to Europe, I'd like to talk with your dad. There's this photo in the book I'm reading, from Vimy Ridge.

That does look like Vimy indeed, I have some pictures form there but shot with my through away after use camera , Canon Ixus.
Talking with my father in law will be not that easy because he doesn't speak English, but is intended to start a course.
So I will be needed to translate.
