Album Cover Challenge 129 by olivetreeann

Album Cover Challenge 129

For the current album cover challenge-

Band: The Roman Withdrawal (from Africa in 225 B. C.); an attempt by the Roman Republic to rescue the survivors of their defeated expeditionary force to Carthaginian Africa (now Northeast Tunisia) during the first Punic War. 390 warships fought and defeated 200 Carthaginian vessels off Cape Hermaeum (modern Cape Bon). 114 Carthaginian ships and crews were captured and 16 sunk. Most modern historians assume there were no Roman losses. However, while returning to Italy the victorious fleet encountered a storm off the southeast corner of Sicily. 384 ships sunk during the storm with the loss of 100,000 men.

Album Title from a quote by Alan Woods: Blame someone else and get on with your life.

Base shot- two shell collectors captured at Sunset Beach in Cape May, NJ taken in 2016. Snow Geese in flight overlay taken in 2018.
Nice montage. Relation to the title?

@milestonevisualmedia Thanks Ron- the way they were looking down made me think of looking only at the past. The way the birds were flying made me think of looking forward. So the relation? Stop looking down, look up and move on.

@pandorasecho It's despicable what our president and his administration did to the good people of Afghanistan, our military and civilian personal there and those of our allies. My opinion.
