"The Bennington Battle Monument, dedicated to the famous Battle of Bennington that took place during the Revolutionary war in 1777, is a 306' stone obelisk opened to the public in 1891. It is located north of VT Rte 9, about 4 miles east of the New York border. A guided elevator takes visitors to the observation floor for spectacular views of Historic Bennington and three states."

Hurray, PJ! Beautiful post with that lovely yellow tree, green green grass and wonderful sky! The people give the opportunity to see how tall the monument is. I am so glad that we spent that time together. It was beautiful in Vermont.

P.J. your so good behind that lens. This is superb! Kind of reminds me of the Washington Monument. A well composed image, with good color, focus and even the textures can be seen. I do hope to see more from you. Your very talented!

Lovely. I was thinking that in principle the Europe and US have acquired this Roman principle of having kind of obelisk in the center of the squares, as a strong link with past.

Like your perspective on this shot, it really accentuates the height of the monument. Beautiful autumnal weather, too, with nice detail in the clouds.

Beautiful composition to come back with, PJ! I'm particularly drawn to the lines of the structure, that are well defined against that magnificent sky! I also like how the yellow bush contrasts with it's surrounding green foliage. The lawn looks like soft velvet. Excellent work, and welcome back my friend! :)

It's soooo good to see you again PJ! I'm glad you were on the get-together and hope you all had lots of fun. This is a worthy comeback, what an impressive monument and really well exposed with perfect colours. The light was just right too, I like the way it's picked out the little yellow tree at the side. Welcome back, I've missed you and I know that lots of your friends here have too.
