Horses of Gettysburg - my two favs

General James Longstreet...I found this monument by accident...Bill was looking for a bathroom. He parked in this grove of trees and I went for a walk.

Here's a close up...this is not telephoto lense use...I was actually this close to this monument. It was pretty close to life-size and that's a pretty descent sized horse he had! :)

This is a monument to one of the Virginia regiments...Bill rolled his eyes at stopping at this one. He was looking for the aformentioned bathroom when I spied a horse on top of this monument.

Here's the very top with the use of the telephoto lense and some pretty cool backlighting from the afternoon sunshine.
