    Default Photographs from France and Belgium

    Hi all

    Thought I'd share some of the photos I have taken over the years on visits to Normandy and the Ardennes. I have a huge number but most were taken on old school 35mm film and I have yet to get round to scanning them in !!!

    The pictures vary from views of the valley around Chambois and Falaise, to views around and down Omaha beach. Quite a few pictures of tanks of various descriptions (check out the front armour plate of the King Tiger !!!!!), and also a picture of a mortar round I stumbled across on Omaha beach whilst metal detecting !!

    I hope you like them

    I have added text to each picture so simply open them up and read the description. Where-ever I could remember, I have included where they were photographed.

    Thanks

    Steve T

    Super photos Steve! One of the things on my "to do" list before I leave this earth, is to walk the Normandy beaches...it must be quite an experience.

    Great shots.

    Hoping to get to the Normandy beaches next year sometime. It has to be one of those things in life where you have to be there to really feel it and take it all in.

    I'll bet the various museums along the way are crammed with bounty
