Arcadia to Armageddon in the winter sunshine

Low winter sunshine and the lack of shade from leaves provided excellent conditions for photographing our installations at Stourhead in Wiltshire "Stourhead will never forget"  commemorates  the effect of World War 1 on the community.. In "Arcadia to Armageddon" a peaceful landscape, including nearby Alfred's Tower, morphs into a battle scene.The horse ploughing a field acquires a gas mask and becomes a war horse.

Below the camel train -camels were carried by train across the desert in the Middle East where many local men served with the Dorset Yeomanry in World War 1

                                  The mural commemorates the Gallipoli Campaign.
