Outstanding capture Mike! So dramatic and beautiful! L

Michael Mazaika replied:

Thank you, Lisa. I've never regretted any visit to this place in over 50 years of being able to do so. - Mike

Michael, without a doubt this is the most striking and dramatic image I have seen in years. It speaks so deeply to me. Gettysburg, the word evokes so many emotions, the loss, the sadness, the fury, the hell; a battlfield on which men gave their life's blood for their beliefs, and your firey sunrise screams it all, (to my way of thinking). I stand in awe!

Michael Mazaika replied:

I am humbled by your kind and gracious thoughts and count it a great privilege to have been able to visit there so often. I hope you get the opportunity to walk the ground as well. Thank you, Lea. - Mike

Michael Mazaika replied:

Allen, thank you. Saw it this past Monday afternoon in the snow. Makes me appreciate what a blessing the conditions were on the morning this shot was taken. - Mike

Michael Mazaika replied:

Thank you, Gene. If you've not had the opportunity, my hope is that you would be able to spend some time walking the ground here at Gettysburg. You won't be disappointed. - Mike

Nice capture. The silhouette and red sky really makes a statement out the history it represents.

Michael Mazaika replied:

Thank you, Dee. The sky was much the same the prior Saturday. Unfortunately, I was 15 minutes too late. The Good Lord gave me a second chance. - Mike

Thank you, Cyril. The sky and sunrise were 8 years in the chasing. The Good Lord has had to teach me many lessons about myself in the process. One of the reasons I love this craft. - Mike

Perfection! Beautiful V/F

Michael Mazaika replied:

Beautiful - I'm grateful that it evoked that response in you, Debby, as we all hope our images accomplish. But not perfection, at least on my part; but gratitude, yes. Thank you for the time you've taken to look at my portfolio. - Mike

Amazing drama! Love this! f/v
