Unknown

Before I move on from black and white images, I wanted to post this one, which has meant a great deal to me. I was out shooting at the Netherlands Carillion early one morning and decided to wander over to Arlington National Cemetery, which is right next door. As I walked along the path near an old section of the cemetery, the morning light splashed across this headstone making is light up and leaving the others in shadow. Here lies an unknown - not the more famous Unknown at Arlington. They are unknown as to name, as to gender, as to how they lived, and as to how they died. Truly known only to God.

(Where was this taken?)

Always incredibly moving places these, lighting makes it so much more moving.
