Dawn Service..




The shots I used yesterday for actual Anzac Day were taken last year, the shots here I took as dawn broke yesterday morning. Getting up at 4am in time to get to Kings Park, find a parking and a good spot to watch the service wasn't easy after three hours sleep, I really must get to bed earlier :) I think I have said before that standing with thousands of others, the silence broken only by the sound of the pipes as the wreathes are laid and the bugle as it plays the Last Post is quite a surreal experience.. even the young children seem to sense the solemnity of the event. I wonder, like most what this year will bring. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  11. Love that memorial.. It is beautiful the way it is lit, and the second one with the lasers is really spectacular. Must be even better being there in person, especially with the pipes.

    It can be a challenge to get up hours before schedule when not done in steps over a few days or weeks.

  21. Amazing photos! Is there a reason the ceremony is at that time of day? When we celebrate Remembrance Day in Canada we have a moment of silence at 11am.
