As today was Veterans day here in The Netherlands, I thought I do something appropriate and I went to the Airborne cemetery in Oosterbeek where the allied troops that fell during the battle of Arnhem are buried. I brought my new (to me) FE 16-35/4 and FE 85/1.8. All these pictures are straight out of the camera:

1. Their name liveth for evermore

Sony A7r2 | Sony/Zeiss 16-35/4 | 35mm | f/8 | 1/200s | 100iso

2. Between the crosses, row on row

Sony A7r2 | Sony/Zeiss 16-35/4 | 35mm | f/8 | 1/160s | 100iso

3. We will remember

Sony A7r2 | Sony FE 85/1.8 | f/8 | 1/400s | 100iso


4. A private, parachute regiment, army air corps

Sony A7r2 | Sony FE 85/1.8 | f/1.8 | 1/5000s | 100iso

5. Known unto God

Sony A7r2 | Sony FE 85/1.8 | f/2 | 1/6400s | 100iso

6. Green and pleasant land.....

Sony A7r2 | Sony FE 85/1.8 | f/4 | 1/1600s | 100iso

For some more,

Nice series Addy, reminds me a lot of all the WW1 wargraves in south-west Belgium. All very sobering places which you have captured well. #4 is my absolute favourite, but by a small margin with the others.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Thank you. These places are kept by the Commonwealth War Grave Commision (CWGC) and they do a great job to keep it personal and impressive at the same time!

Thank you for your remarks. #4 indeed is nice

Thanks Addy,
Excellent photos. I probably appreciate "straight out of the camera, unedited" shots more than most. Something about the purity and seeing how good you can make a photo without the artificial editing. But then you hear stuff like, well it was edited in the camera, the camera edited it and "blah, blah blah".
Yeh, that's why Ansel Adams is one of my hero's for the simplicity of his film photo's while his use of filters and darkrooms was quite complex, but no computers that I know of.

The Airborne of the brutal battle of Arnhem were real Hero's as were all Airborne
