Flickr a Week 21b: ‘Tyne Cot Cemetery’

We turn our eyes across the Atlantic to commemorate this fine US Memorial Day, courtesy of self-titled “Tyne Cot Cemetery“, which Eric Huybrechts captured on May 12, 2018, using Nikon D7100 and 11-16mm f/2.8 lens. Vitals: f/18, ISO 200, 1/125 sec, 11mm. The solemn shot is a keeper for ambience, black-and-white rendering, and composition.

“Tyne Cot Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery and Memorial to the Missing is a Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) burial ground for the dead of the First World War in the Ypres Salient on the Western Front”, Eric explains. “It is the largest cemetery for Commonwealth forces in the world, for any war”.

The “retired language teacher from Antwerp, Belgium” joined Flickr in October 2007. He is still active 13 years later.
