What an excellent tribute and outstanding photos. I was born and raised in Arlington, Va. Arlington Cemetary is truely a place of solemnity and peace. It is without a doubt the most hallowed and most beautiful place in our country. The headstones standing in rank pay tribute to the devotion to duty, honor and country by those who served. God bless each and everyone of them.

Thanks Monroe, and I totally agree on what your speaking here. Very cool on being raised there. I'm looking forward to going back there next year to see some spring or Fall colors. have'nt decided which yet.

Very nice. Arlington is such an imposing place even for non Americans. When we visited it last year it left a lasting impression on both my wife and I. We felt an overwhelming sadness that we could not shake off. Thanks for posting them.

Thanks for your impressions Lloyd true on the imposing place. I solely walked around the cemetery(feet and legs paid for that haha ) but yeah felt what you said. such a beautiful place. Like said above Every American should see once. during the changing of the guards each time I could'nt help but tear up.

Everyone if you like what you see here. here's my Facebook Album with Photographs from the other sites I saw that day in DC.. I have yet to post a thread on POTN with those pics, but will soon. (I'm still editing all my pics from that day in DC)

Very nice series. I visited Arlington 4 years ago. It's a very emotionally moving place. To see it in person and get the full view and magnitude of the grounds is truly very humbling. I feel VERY blessed to have had so many willing to serve and make the ultimate sacrifice for my freedom. God bless all who have served and are currently serving and their familes as well that live this day in & day out.

Great shots. I was overwhelmed with emotion while snapping away during the changing of the guard ceremony. People who have never witnessed this have no idea what they are missing.You walk away a changed person in a way. We saw everything and did everything in DC and that, and the Lincoln Memorial were the top two.



6D, 60D, Various L and non-L Lenses and more gear than I have time to use. ;)

Every time I've been to the DC area I've wanted to get over to Arlington but have never been able to because I'm always there on offical travel which doesn't leave much time for sight seeing... Nice shots. Currently being on active duty these images strike a chord. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know why, but the head stone photos are always the photos that stick out to me out of all the Arlington photos.


Keep on working, It can only get better from here.

Been there 4 times. Each time during Rolling Thunder. I need to go again on a different time at 8am to get the solitude that your pictures show. Excellent set.
