Shining a Light on Veterans



Veterans day was celebrated Tuesday throughout the United States in a wide range of programs to honor the men and women who served our country, and one group of people in my area organized a special display of luminaries to honor them. Over four hundred bags with candles were placed along a local rail trail and visitors could walk the path and reflect on the sacrifices made by so many.I light painted this military jeep that was parked at the entrance to the trail. This was the first annual event and some things will be adjusted next year to make it more amazing. From a photo standpoint,the trail lights were way overwhelming compared to the tea lights in the bags and made capturing them a bit challenging,plus the tea lights were a blue color in the bags,so I adjusted the file to resemble the traditional luminary look. I may post another shot with the blue look later.
