SylviaStewart.Wk4.Hallelujah

I chose the phrase "Our Love is not a Victory March" as I thought about veterans and their families, many who give all. Another phrase from this song that came to mind was "cold and broken hallelujah". This is the Veteran's Memorial in our community atop a hill overlooking the mountains. Even with the amount of brush in the background, I wanted to capture the commemorative plaque, the eagle and the wind swept mountains in the late afternoon clearing on a dark, windy and cloudy day. Someone has loaned me a Nikon D7000 and I am learning "the ropes" with this camera. Regular edits in LR then spot healing and cloning in PS. If I could do this picture again, I would move just a little to the left and maybe get down, but I could not because of weather conditions.
