NATIONAL MEMORIAL ARCH

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
NATIONAL MEMORIAL ARCH
NATIONAL MEMORIAL ARCH

----
Nature's Confetti!
---
At Valley Forge National Historic Park, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania
------------
Though we have lived less than an hour from Valley Forge for 22 years, and have passed by its entrance SO MANY times, yesterday was the first time that I entered through the park's gates and walked the six-mile trail around the encampment.
-----
As I stood gazing at the arch, a breeze that I could not feel agitated the stately oak to the left, and its leaves began to fill the air.
-----
The inscription on this side of the arch reads: TO THE OFFICERS AND PRIVATE SOLDIERS OF THE CONTINENTAL ARMY DECEMBER 19, 1777 JUNE 19, 1778
------------

    The Arch is a simplified version of the Triumphal Arch of Titus in Rome (A.D. 81) which marked the capture of Jerusalem by Emperor Titus in A.D. 70.
----

This memorial arch with its single opening is classically proper as a national tribute to General Washington and the army he led.
-----

The inscription on the other side of the Arch reads: NAKED AND STARVING AS THEY ARE - WE CANNOT ENOUGH ADMIRE THE INCOMPARABLE PATIENCE AND FIDELITY OF THE SOLDIERY - Washington at Valley Forge February 16, 1776

Spectacular capture, Michelle! It's a great POV and terrific composition, by itself, but the addition of the swirling leaves really enhances the atmosphere and accentuates the emotional moment. Special! And, as always, thanks for the history lesson.

Lovely clarity and the leaves blowing around catch the eye firstly and then you see the couple standing at the arch, which is a secondry focus point for me, great.

Thanks so much to everyone for the huge compliments. I really loved this shot, even before I snapped the shutter. It was such an emotional feeling to be standing there, thinking about the soldiers that were encamped there almost 250 years ago and their winter hardships, and suddenly the Oak gave up all its leaves to an imperceptible breeze. Wow! I'm thrilled that it made a gold badge!

Michelle,

Whether it be the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the Siegestor in Munich and the Wellington Arch in London, nothing comes close to how beautiful your rendition of this Triumphal Arch is.
A truly deserving winner for its dynamism, sense of movement and flow even if its only an image of an edifice. Captured at the exact moment to show its grandeur and magnificence. Beautifully done and created, this merits the accolade it deserves.
CONGRATULATIONS!

Lester
