Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I would like to dedicate this photograph to Jean (jean123) who first posted a photograph of this remarkable memorial display in Plymouth and alerted me to the possibility of actually seeing it.

Luckily, on our way to France, we spent a few hours in the city whilst waiting for the ferry and were able to see the poppy display in person.

Wave, a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks, was originally seen at the Tower of London as part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red in 2014. Now, on the Plymouth Naval Memorial, it takes on a new, cascading appearance.

It is a stunning display. We witnessed lots of people standing admiring the display, some in deep thought. It is moving, when you think that each poppy is meant to represent the life of an allied person lost during WW!.

I will add a w/s showing a different angle on the poppies that just appealed to me!

We were unable to stop and see the display in the evening when, according to soldiers on duty, the whole scene is illuminated and looks amazing against a night sky!

Have a great Sunday,
Bev :-)
