Took the cameras to Antietam yesterday and came home with a pile of photos. you can see the rest athttp://www.pbase.com/bowman1/antietam

The bloody cornfield is fallow this year. Those are beans in the background though.

May I have permission to use the photos of the Rohrbach Bridge (Burnside's Bridge)? When I do a second edition of my book, Iwant better pictures.

Awesome - to look at those bucolic scenes and remember the amount of blood spilled and the carnage there. Seems very surreal now.

One day I hope to make a tour of the remaining battlefields. Many, like the site of Burnside's assault of Marye's Heights in Fredricksburg are mostly gone and built over.

Thanks for the photo kudos everyone. Going to Antietam is a sobering experience at any time of year, but it is more so in mid-September. The anniversary of the battle was last Thursday, so I can only imagine what it must have been like 147 years ago to the day of my visit.

All the photos are digital, but one of the cameras I used has been converted over to full time infrared by a company called Lifepixel.

Great color pics.

Though as for the others, I have never understood the fascination with Infrared anymore than monochrome in a color film era.

Call me an artistic barbarian.

Nice pix.

That whole stretch of countryside has distant echoes of battle, definitely from the past, perhaps from the future...

Very haunting photographs. Thanks.

I visited it once as a boy on a family vacation, but that was beaucoup years ago and I don't remember much about the place.

OK, I'll bite. What book would you like to include these in?

Nice photos. I hope to get there someday.

I see you also know how to use infrared. Interesting effect, even ghostly.

Thank You
