Hi Hans,

I was reading the comment you left on Draken's Lake Geneva pic, where you mentioned the song "Say Goodbye to it all"" by Chris De Burgh. It is also a favourite of mine, especially the lines about the beaches of Normandy...it always chokes me up .. Of course, that led me to this stunning photo and I would also like to say how much I enjoy looking through your gallery, it's absolutely wonderful!! Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us :-)

With friendly greetings from mook88

Hi mook88, thank your for your visit and your kind comment.

Chris de Burgh is one of my favourite artists and it always saddens me that people only know his ballad Lady In Red while he has so many beautiful songs.

Have you ever been to Normandy? The next time you're in Europe, you should really check it out. There's a huge cemetery close to Omaha Beach and I can't help getting choked up every time I go there.

By the way, the same goes for the First World War cemeteries around Ypres, in Belgium. It's shocking to walk past all those white headstone and see the ages: 18, 23, 19, 20... All those young lives being wasted over nothing. And all those unknown soldiers: "A Soldier of the Great War. Known only to God"...

Greetings from Belgium - Hans
