Sunday Skies

 

The sun sets over Fleetwood. 

Taken from the front drive of our English home.

****************************************************************

At exactly 11:11 a.m. every Veteran’s Day (Nov. 11), the sun aligns perfectly with the Anthem Veteran’s Memorial in Arizona to shine through the ellipses of the five marble pillars representing each branch of the Armed Forces, illuminating The Great Seal of the United States.

Just shows that we have lovely skies in England, too smile

That's a striking very memorial; a very clever desire. We have something fairly similar at the National Memorial Arboretum -http://www.pbase.com/image/121562484
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Absolutely!
It is very well thought out - the one you link to is very good as well! I suppose the effect of the Arizona memorial is a bit more reliable, as we can usually count on a bright sun.
That is a fine memorial. There is a similar idea at the National memorial arboretum here at Alrewas.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is - well thought out.
Alan sent a link for the Alrewas memorial... it is very good also!
Brilliant design for the Veterans Memorial. I wonder how many prototypes were made before they got it exactly right.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is very well thought out. I've wondered that myself - at least with the reliable Arizona sun it might not be too difficult.

What a sight to look out on, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh it is, Lisl! I love it! So different from the views we get in Flagstaff! smile
Lovely sky and amazing war monument!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mary! That memorial is very well thought out I think.
You have such a wonderful sky view from your English home, Elizabeth. Your veteran's war memorial was well thought out in its design.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We do, Beverly!
I really like this memorial. A bit different from most.
A very fine English evening sky and what an inventive memorial, I have seen the one in Alans link but not of course on 11:11.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes indeed!
I really like this memorial - well thought out and different from most. I like the one Alan refers to as well.

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it wonderful! Yes - You get a real feel of the gravity of it all... Thank you, Steven!
