Scene In The Trenches

This is a great Trench scene photograph by Frank Hurley.   Obviously, the soldiers aren’t in any immediate danger as they are well within sights of a German sniper.  The scene may have been posed or staged deliberately as there is another soldier walking above ground in a casual manner in the background.  What’s often missed in this photograph are the heads of the soldiers further along peeking above the Trench.  Nearly all have their weapons in an almost ready position.
