My contribution for this week’s challenge…

On August 05, 2014 I was at a commemoration service

across the Bay, at Point Nepean,

to remember the firing of

The First (allied) Shot of World War I.

Towards the end of the ceremony this flight

of pelicans made and appearance.

Maverick would call it a ‘fly by’, I  think.

seeking safer airspace before a twenty-first century

gun crew fired another shot to commemorate

firing of the First Shot exactly 100 years earlier.

Love the colour of the water in this shot.

No photo-shopping.

This is probably my favourite in-flight photo.

No distractions…and the wing tips give it

the look of a 787 Dreamliner.
