The Cross of Lorraine.
A monument on a hill, (Lyle Hill) above Greenock, overlooking the Firth of Clyde.
The inscription reads:
This monument is dedicated to the memory of the
Free French naval forces who sailed from Greenock in the years 1940 - 1945
Who gave their lives in the Battle of the Atlantic
for the liberation of France and the success of the Allied cause.
I have posted same monument some time back.
This time, it was a cold clear day.

A really powerful image with the white cross standing out against the blue background. I think the picture could perhaps have been just a tad sharper though. The overall composition is quite good though.

I remember your previous shot of this monument. I think this one surpasses it. The point of view is well chosen to juxtapose the white cross with the snow capped mountains on the far side of the river. The lovely blue sky makes a superb backdrop. The image has a very pleasant light and excellent colours and sharpness.
Sunny but very cold here today (maximum 8 degrees).
