Winter's Dream - One of My Shots

Winter's Dream by Reed A. George
 Winter's Dream, Bristoe Station, Virginia
Lumix DMC-G1, Pana-Leica 45mm Macro-Elmarit f2.8
iso100, f5.6, 1/100 sec

I took this shot on a cool winter morning, while visiting the Bristoe Station Civil War battlesite.  For some reason, this image made me think of what those confederate soldiers, far from home, many from Alabama, thought as they camped here soon after the first battle at Manassas.  Many of them died from disease, which was rampant throughout the encampment.  

This view could be anywhere.  I wonder if any of them saw something similar, which made them think of home.
