Monument

This wasn't going to be the monument I had aimed to post, but seeing as I have just posted it on my page I thought I would share it here.

Unless you have seen it in person I doubt you can guess where or why. Well, I can tell you the where, Omaha Beach Normandy (where the Americans landed on 6/6/1944), but as to the why ... your guess is as good as mine!

Great photo--appropriate timing.
I have literally just come back from a short trip there - truly amazing (except for this weird monument)
It is quite fascinating - so much so that I have just found an explanation for you!
We were told what it was meant to represent, but modern art tends to lose me!!

However I just hope that such a striking piece will mean that people will stop and question why and what ... and keep the stories of these beaches alive
Oh, I like it. Very striking against the sand and the sea.
It is amazing ... I just hope casual people stop and ask why it is there ... and keep the history alive.
It's really impressive, and looks awesome with the clear blue sky and the strong shadows the light throws!
