In this period of remembrance leading up to 11 November many of us will be all too well aware of the sacrifices made recently by the men and women of today's Armed Forces. This image was taken at the National Memorial Arboretum and is a poignant reminder of these more recent conflicts. The photograph is not staged in any way but is just as I found it. The only change I made in post-production was to remove the individual's name from the cross, partly to protect them and their family but also to recognise that this one mother's heartfelt act is representative of so much suffering.
This image can be purchased from my web site with all profit going to fund a Royal Naval Medical Service memorial at the National Arboretum.
