tear

a hole or split in something caused by it
having been pulled apart forcefully.

This hole in the ground,

known as Lochnagar Crater,

was created after British soldiers 

detonated 27,000 tons of explosives

under German lines during

World War I.

The force created a tear in the ground

measuring 220 feet (67 metres) diameter

and 450 feet (137 metres) across

Debris from the explosion rose

about 4,000 feet into the air.

surreal 

a situation or experience that is surreal

is very strange and difficult to understand,

like something from a dream

I am choosing my visit to the

Western Front Battle Fields in 2017,

for this post.

 Seeing all the cemeteries we visited

and the names of the missing in action was

a reality check, if not surreal.

I created this photo for a

‘ghost’ challenge some time ago.

Every time I look at my Western Front photos,

it brings back memories of those now

tranquil French and Belgium fields,

  where death once ruled and they were

covered with bloody bodies.

On

ANZAC DAY

I felt it appropriate to feature

Flanders Field poppies.

It wasn’t until my visit to the Western Front in 2017

that I realised how prolific these poppies are.

Like wildflowers turning fields of battle red.

Found on

the Somme Battlefields

of France.

During my 2017 visit

to the World War I

Western Front Battlefields,

…I often saw this, but…

 

 

felt that someone was watching

over us as we toured.

ANZAC Day
