Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day) on November 11 is a memorial day observed in commonwealth countries to remember the members of their armed forces who had died in the line of duty.
I was trying to find a appropriate words for this picture and I spotted a poem which I quote a fragment of it.
..."This is a Remember Day
And the poppy there is a symbol for
The gallant men who died in war.
And because they did, you and I are free"...
From poem "Why wear a poppy?" by author unknown.

Beautiful symbolic image, nice composed and the poppy's really stand out against the grey of the monument.

Nice crop, beautiful color contrast between the flower and the grey background. You should get more points for this shot. TFS
