Angel and Moon over Bushnell Park, Hartford, Connecticut
By RON LIZZI - GoOutsideBook.com
Statues of angels crown the two towers of the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch at Bushnell Park in Hartford, Connecticut. The bronze angels were sculped by Lloyd Glasson (1931-2014) to replace the original terra cotta angels, which were removed after one was struck by lightning in 1974 and later destroyed along with the other by a fire in a storage shed in 1985.
The photo below, which shows Archangel Gabriel with trumpets atop the western tower, was taken during a full moon on July 19 from the west side of the park, approximately 600 feet (183 meters) away.
