A friend, Tim Geiger saw this photo I posted of the Marine Corp Memorial and thought "I know someone who would like that"!

Capturing this shot was more difficult than it looks. To get it you need to be high on a hillside overlooking the Memorial, but not too high. Had I move a foot higher, you would have seen leaves at the top. A foot to the right, yep a bush. And had I aimed a bit lower, tourists. I am happy with the capture and processing. It took three rounds with the lab to get this to where I wanted it. The image is rendered on metal and is ready to hang. I hope its new owner enjoys it half as much as I enjoyed making it and working with Tim Geiger to keep this a secret!
