I always love to photograph the American Flag. This perspective is from below a very large flag billowing in the slight breeze.

Receiving an award from Better Photo is just like unwrapping a gift, the thrill is always the same! It is also exciting to be able to send my personal congratulations to each and every one of you and I look forward to seeing the gold though out the galleries. Merna

What struck me most about this stunning version is that it almost seems to honor the flowing blood of the brave American Veterans who have kept the flag flying for over two hundred years.

This is a very special image, Kathy. Thank you for entering it and Better Photo for choosing it as the POTD on the Eve of Veterans's Day.
