D-Day (first part)

La prima spiaggia che visitiamo è Longues-sur-mer, parte integrante del vallo atlantico nazista, le imponenti casematte e i cannoni da 150 mm posizionati sulla sua costa, furono progettati per colpire bersagli a circa 20 km di distanza.
A distanza di quasi settant'anni, questi enormi pezzi di artiglieria, uniche armi di grosso calibro rimaste in Normandia, sono ancora al loro posto negli alloggiamenti di cemento. 
Un posto inquietante in un paesaggio idilliaco fatto di campi di grano splendente, papaveri e fiorellini bianchi.

The first beach we visited was Longues-sur-mer, part of the Atlantic wall, the Casemates and the 150 mm guns positioned on its coast, were designed to hit targets at about 20 km away.
Almost seventy years, these large artillery pieces, unique high-caliber weapons remain in Normandy, are still in place in the slots. 
A disturbing place in an idyllic landscape made of shining wheat fields, poppies and white small flowers.

  11. Beautiful photos. I remember visiting the Normandy beaches several years ago - as you say it's a beautiful landscape with pretty poppies and difficult to imagine how it must have been all those years ago.
