Wonderful image! I like the canteen that has the "8"on it and "C.V." Great processing! l/f

Michael Mazaika replied:

Thank you, Olivia. This was a very cool happenstance. If you've not had the opportunity (since you are relatively local to the Sharpsburg area), please consider visiting the Antietam Battlefield on the first Saturday in December for the Memorial Illumination - an incredible sight and experience. - Mike

Love the light and its effect on this image. Nice capture!

Michael Mazaika replied:

I have been treated to some incrediby wonderful light on my many visits to this hallowed ground. This day was one of those times. Thanks for your encouragement, Dee. - Mike

Great piece Michael; a wonderful historic portrayal of Burnside Bridge.

Michael Mazaika replied:

Thank you, Julia. I'm sure you've visited there many times. There is fascinating light throughout the year but my favorite time period is from early November thru February. I'm glad you enjoyed this image. - Mike

Excellent photography Michael! like looking back in time.

Michael Mazaika replied:

Thank you, Bob. What a blessing to come upon the scene. It almost looked like a set-up in a studio. Probably my favorite amongst all the battlefields I've been privileged to visit.

Thank you, Janelle. I was fortunate to come upon this scene during a lazy summer afternoon at Antietam with the troops safely away from their campsite, but in the nearby field doing their drills.
