Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

This striking granite War Memorial is by the Scottish artist Doug Cocker, sited on the eastern side of Loch Lomond at Rowardennan. The sculpture frames the waters and mountains that would normally take centre stage but in this instance sit firmly in the background:

      Thanks – there is much less ‘arty’ version with my wife and her mad friend popping up either side of the pyramid like a pair of garden gnomes – maybe I should have used that as well 🙂

    Beautiful. For some reason, it reminds of old movies.
