At dawn yesterday, the 25th of April 2015, it was exactly 100 years ago, that the allies made the assault up the cliffs at Gallipoli. Anzac Day is remembered by Australia and New Zealand every year, as the first significant battle the two nations endured major losses in.
Ultimately, the campaign at Gallipoli was a military disaster, failing to knock out the Ottoman Empire from World War I. The troops suffered fierce resistance for 8 months, and finally were evacuated.
This year’s ceremony was nearly a wash out. It rained all day, my camera was drenched. It was a real disadvantage to be shooting with prime lenses, as I was reluctant to change lenses in the pouring rain.
Still, I managed to get a few shots from the morning. I used my new 24mm 1.4 Art lens, as I was keen to try it out. Hope you enjoy;
