A Floral Adventure

Today, me and a couple of other photosJ's went to The Eden Project for a nice day out photographing the latest in the world of being a photoJ. Here's what I came back with. I hope you like flowers. There are many.

American Cemetery - Normandy

These are images which were taken at the American Cemetery in Normandy. The cemetery has over 9300 graves for the American soldiers who died either on the 6th June 1944 or in the following days of the assault in northern France. 

D-Day Landings

On the 6th June 1944, the British and their allies put into action ‘Operation Neptune’. This operation was to regain control of France starting in the north, in Normandie. There were two parts to the landing... an airborne attack where 24,000 paratroopers who were British, Canadian, American and Free French airborne troops landed shortly after midnight and an amphibious landing of Allied Infrantry on the coast of France starting at 6:30am. The assault stretched far along the coast of Normandie and the different allies had different sections of the coast to attack and regain control of. 

When I was in France, I visited the beaches and coastline where the D-Day Landings took place:


Honfleur is a great little town in the Calvados department in northwestern France. I was in France during the Easter break and we stopped off in this small town on the way to Caen to grab a quick coffee.
