Friday Photo Shoot Out: Angels

This week's Shoot Out theme is Angels.
I don't have any of my Normandy photos digitized, but this is Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, where many American angels rest overlooking the sea.
Thank you!

Angels posts from other Shootout members can be found here: be sure to stop by!
Merry Christmas, all!

Thank you for this. My parents and grandparents back several great-greats are in national cemeteries. The graves are beautiful and sad at the same time; so many soldiers and their spouses at rest.

Yes, we cannot forget the lost angels...I always think of this when I pass a cemetery, or memorial park...thank you for reminding us!

That's a stunning photo of the gravestones and the sea. Wow. Beautiful. And that sky. California skies are SO cerulean, I guess because of the Pacific. Well, who knows, maybe.

Happy Christmas!!
