Shots were taken in August 2018, WW1's centenary year. Although there are some light leaks, I was able to develop some shots.
Within the grounds of the Kasteelhof 't Hooghe hotel in Ypres there is a small part of what once was part of the Hooge battleground. The area was regarded as a hazardous area for the infantry, where snipers abounded and trench raids were frequent. Both sides saw Hooge as a particularly important area and a key target for heavy artillery bombardment.
