B for Battlefield Bride

Bright afternoon's bride at the Princeton Battlefield, near the tomb of unknown soldiers from the 1777 Battle of Princeton. (I showed a portion of the battlefield Monday.)

Linking to my first ABC Wednesday - thanks to LOLfromPasa at Today Around Coventry Daily Photo for suggesting I try it!
"Near here lie buried the American and British officers and soldiers who fell in the Battle of Princeton."

That's an amazing photograph, like something out of a film. Had there been less petticoats (!) I'd have sworn I had just stumbled upon Lizzie and swooning at the thought of seeing Mr Darcy in a minute or two. Gorgeous photo with the lovely light!

Un lugar muy bonito a pesar de los recuerdos de una antigua guerra.
En cuanto a la foto en mi opinión, esta muy bien compuesta y a pesar
del contraluz, da fuerza a la imagen las proyecciones de sombra que
dan los árboles y el monumento. ¡Muy Bien!
Un saludo, Ángel
-Como siempre, interesante los detalles históricos que relatas en tus
fotos
