The story behind the image

Close to Gairlochy you will find the Commando Memorial located on a hill, a martialistic bronze memorial remembering the soldiers of elite commando units who trained in the area during World War II. While the memorial may not be for everyone, the views it provides across the surrounding farmland are excellent.

In this photo I like the dramatic wide angle that includes a lot of the sky, making the soldiers look even more determined to perform their duties.
