So far, this is my gem. If it looks familiar, it is because it is the location of one of the most famous Matthew Brady photos from the Civil War. http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/cwphtml/cwpcam/cw00171.jpg I was kind of sad when we started to drive away from Devil’s Den because I was looking for this spot. But as we drove around the back, I saw it. This is one of those spots where it seems like you can hear the voices of the soldiers carried on the wind. I walked into this little cubby to peak over the wall and see what this soldier’s view was like. As I stood in that corner and looked over the wall, I thought I heard a man moan. It was pretty spooky and made me really sad. So as I looked over the wall toward Little Round Top, I laid my eyes on what was probably the last thing this soldier ever saw. It wasn’t a life changing or defining moment for me. But it was certainly a profound moment that I will never forget.
If you are looking for the photo info, it is absent because I used an HDR program to align 3 exposures. When I saved the resulting image, the photo info disappeared. :(
The 3 images: focal length 35mm
