This is Memorial Point at Bear Creek Harbor in Ontario, NY. It’s a very small park dedicated to the service men and women of Wayne County who made the ultimate sacrifice in each of the wars and conflicts of the United States. There are plaques embedded in the rocks with the names of each of the service men and women going back to the Civil War. There is also a public boat launch into Lake Ontario. On the day I was there it was very quiet and peaceful but I doubt if it ever gets very crowded. I am drawn to places like this. If you’re in the area, it’s worth a look.
This is a fantastic image…
They have the same color as the US flag.
Thanks, Malin. I thought the colors of the jackets was appropriate, too.
Looks like my kind of place. Love the sky in this image, as it provides a fitting backdrop to the story.
Thanks, Tom. We have had some pretty dramatic skies lately. They make a great backdrop.
Nice photo… very dramatic… good color. Good write-up too.
What a beautiful shot, Ken. We’ve had such dramatic skies lately. On a few drives home I’ve been sorely tempted to stop and take a photo – but then I decide to just enjoy the moment! Thank you for sharing!
Thanks, Sarah. We have been fortunate to have the dramatic skies without too much dramatic weather. The best of both worlds.
Very nice, and I too like such places.
It looks a really peaceful place and it is a good thing to remember all those brave people.
You picture is fantastic Ken.
What I really like about this is the subtle color.
Thanks, Chris. I tried to bring back some color into the flag. It was originally pretty dull.
What a beautiful sky!
