Jo’s Monday Walk

Week-25

Merricourt Cemetery

Like some other War Grave Cemeteries,

Merricourt War Grave cemetery

is an extension of the

local communal cemetery.

And like all other cemeteries

it is immaculately cared for

and extremely peaceful.


It did not take long to find

Private Patterson’s grave.

Another twenty-two year old life cut short.

The same family contribution to the headstone.

 

So far graves belonging to the

Patterson family have been marked

by a flower in bloom or one nearby.

In this case it was an in bloom iris…

 

which made the grave easily identifiable…

 

in some contextual shots.


All to soon it was time to be on our way again

and ponder the meaningless

and utter waste of life.

 I thought what we had seen was bad…

however, in my opinion the worst

was yet to come.

Weekly-Weather-Halos

Unfortunately this is the second time

I have re-posted this photo this week.

However, it is the only photo I have

which vaguely resembles the challenge requirements

of halo, sun dogs or light pillars

Captured along the Great Ocean Road

after fires had devastated the area

a few weeks prior.

It was a foggy morning which probably caused the halo.
