Our trips to see family in Norfolk take us past this magnificent memorial on the A11. It just juts out of the ground right next to the dual carriageway, imposing in its height.

It is the Elveden War Memorial near Thetford. We are almost at my in-laws’ when we see it. A welcome sight after a long drive.

I’ve taken photos of this magnificent memorial before, but the slightly grim weather today suggested another should be on the cards.

I love this gorgeous old lady – long may she remain in Broadgate Park.

16/365

We live fairly close to Broadgate Park in Beeston and there’s this lovely memorial to the Great War located in there.

I’ve seen some lovely photos of this on Flickr before and have often tried to get a nice shot of it myself but my attempts today looked pretty poor on my screen. Still, I tried a few processing options in Camera+ and found that the HDR option exposed the statue quite nicely while bringing out the sky too.

I had to reduce the effect a bit to get rid of some haloing (is that even a word?) and I ended up quite pleased with the result.
