The American Monument, Isle of Islay

The Daily Post theme this week is ‘Monument’. For this theme I have chosen an image of The American Monument in the Mull of Oa, Isle of Islay, Argyll, Scotland which was built to remember the loss of American Troopships Tuscania which was torpedoed by a German submarine in February 1918 and the Ortranto, which sank in October 1918 with more than 400 lives lost between the two disasters.

    1. Thanks Sonya, it was a bit breezy on the day, suppose that’s the beauty of photo editing, we can make the photo look and feel the way we want…with a little help from the camera also 🙂
