With Veterans Day Weekend coming up I decided to post a photo of the soldiers raising the flag at Iwo Jima. I took this photograph of the Iwo Jima Memorial on the same morning I took the last one, Forged In Fire. All I had to do was have patience and wait for the colors of the sky to change United States.
This has been a photograph that I’ve had in my mind for over a year to take. I knew that photographing the Iwo Jima Memorial when the sky is fire red would make a good photograph. Luckily this morning everything came together!
I took this picture of the Iwo Jima Memorial at dusk after the sun had fallen below the horizon. Had to work fast so that the color of the sky didn’t go away. The deep blue color was balanced with the lights illuminating the memorial.
