I almost killed myself taking the photo of the row of flags. After positioning myself to get the right angle I shot the photo. I was done and was going to go across the street to go on the beach with Jim, but while taking off I didn't realize how close I was to one of the pilons. Banged up my shim really bad and was swinging my arms wildly to keep my balanc e and not fall. What we do to get that photo!!!!!


Omaha Beach was the code name for one of the five sectors of the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in the Normandy landings on 6 June 1944, during World War II. 'Omaha' refers to a section of the coast of Normandy. On D-Day, the untested 29th Infantry Division, along with nine companies of U.S. Army Rangers redirected from Pointe du Hoc, were to assault the western half of the beach. The battle-hardened 1st Infantry Division was given the eastern half. The initial assault waves, consisting of tanks, infantry, and combat engineer forces, were carefully planned to reduce the coastal defenses and allow the larger ships of the follow-up waves to land. I almost killed myself taking the photo of the row of flags. After I shot the photo, I was going to go across the street to go on the beach with Jim, but while taking off I didn't realize how close I was to one of the pilons. Banged up my shim really bad and was swinging my arms wildly to keep my balanc e and not fall. What we do to get that photo!!!!!


The primary objective at Omaha was to secure a beachhead of eight kilometres (5 miles) depth, between Port-en-Bessin and the Vire River, linking with the British landings at Gold to the east, and reaching the area of Isigny to the west to link up with VII Corps landing at Utah.

Gorgeous use of the template and wonderful blending. I would enjoy seeing all this--we are military history buffs. Glad you got the shot!

You were clearly totally immersed in getting the shot, and your result shows that. Ouch! You were still in photographer mode when you took off. Love that photo.
