This World War I era war memorial howitzer seems to guard the entrance to the Neenah Nodaway Yacht Club harbor on a serene June morning at Riverside Park in the city of Neenah, Winnebago County, Wisconsin USA.

Lovely shot - great execution, Kris.  I love the balance and the way the other side of the water is in slight haze.  At first I thought the lunch table should go, but on reflection it makes a statement about war and peace.


cheers, TREVOR

Thank you for your kind response!  I debated moving the picnic table out of the scene but decided that I would capture the image as I found it.  Thank you, again!
