Vimy Ridge, a very special place for Canadians (http://www.historicplaces.ca/en/pages/vimyridge.aspx). Wonderful views of the monument both as a whole and the finer details. Thanks for sharing.

Regards

Hey Pascal

Thats a pretty amazing memorial and I think you captured it really well .. pics 2 and 3 looks as if the WB shifted in the 3rd (don't you just hate when they do that!) .

Will need to pay a visit when i get some time to pop over to the mainland!

Thank you everyone for these very nice comments.

@Steven, Thank you and I will try now to post some more :-)

@Hartj, I don't know what did happen but it was weird weather, blue sky, gray sky, sun, no sun, some raindrops, etc. I did try to correct it now and looks better I think.

I am unsure why as I am not aware of any particular action that Australians took part of at Vimy Ridge,
but there is a place so named on what is German Town Hill between the towns of Bridgewater and Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills.
Perhaps it is just recognition of this important place on behalf of the Canadians

This is a view I took from it
