Our New Photo Series - Monuments to Faith and Freedom

Winter has its own, austere beauty, but  it is rarely captured well in photographs.  Therefore, Sunlit Uplands is putting aside for a few months its usual landscape photographs and today begins a new photo series on our masthead - the cathedrals, monuments and memorials built throughout the Anglosphere in honor of those who lived and died for God and country. 

The first one, The Katyń Memorial in Jersey City, New Jersey, is especially meaningful to me.  I lived near it for nearly 10 years.  Until the dastardly attack on the World Trade Center, the view of those towers across New York Harbor framed this memorial to another mass evil - the slaughter of 22,000 Polish military officers, police and intelligentsia at the hands of Soviet Secret Police.

As always, your photos and suggestions are welcome.
