Anzac Day.
  Anzac Day.
Anzac Day.
In Australia, the 25th of April is our national day to remember all our service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice, in past wars and peace keeping missions.
“Lest We Forget”.
This is part of our National War Memorial at Canberra, and it is a must see for anyone visiting our nation’s capital.
It is quite an achievement to capture this part of the complex, without visitors walking to and from the car park.
Taken mid-morning, at 1/125th f16.0 and ISO-200.

A wonderful image for this special occasion John - on a slightly lighter note, I know nothing about Rugby League but isn't there an important Anzac test match, Canberra to be played also in recognition of the day - Good Luck !!! (You will need it :-)) ha ha
