Peaceful Now

Like many others have collected over the years, I have literally thousands of present day battlefield images. Whether that's me exploring new places, taking coach tours or smaller private tours, I've got lots of memories kept in those jpegs. 

This is one of my favourites. 

This image captures something I love to do, particularly on the Somme, to just sit and reflect.  I've got quite a good imagination, so I often try to recreate the scene in front of me - to place the men, their movements, the sights and smells. After all, that's what a good guide does for their group. But, there is something so perfectly peaceful about sitting on your own and reflecting.
