D-day landings scenes in 1944 and now – interactive

I normally put up my own photos on my blog, however, today is D-day and instead I'm putting a link to this website with some remarkable photos of places in Normandy taken on D-day and now. You click on the image and it will change to the present day. Fascinating!
