Night Vision

An entirely different ballgame flying this thing at night.  But still as much fun.  I was in such a hurry to get up and start shooting that I forgot to change the settings for a better night-time image.  Not too shabby for being shot at ISO 100.  The fact that the flag is lit up doesn’t hurt.  And, no, the camera isn’t that close to the flag.  It’s probably about 30 feet away.

That's one BIG flag.  I've been living my house now for 10+ years and it's still a little eerie to hear this flag flapping in the wind at night.

Memorial

A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers and woods, it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.

– George William Curtis


One of the many flags that adorn the Shenandoah Memorial Park near Winchester on Memorial Day.
