Default Cabin Fever....

So...I was bored to death the other morning and decided to run up to Old Fort Niagara and try and get into the site to do a few shots of the old place....it never dawned on me that they dont heat the fort, so it made for some damp and chilly shooting. Low and behold I was the only knucklehead there and had the run of the place all to my lonesome, so cold or not I made the best of it. The lens used is Tamrons 10-24...although not having the reputation of being the sharpest, it will have to do for now.

No doubt there will be a few viewing- drooling at the thought of some HDR here...!
Interesting place...

I am not far from Fort George on the opposite side of the Niagara River and have seen Fort Niagara from Niagara-on-the-Lake. From your images it looks like I'll have to get over and do some sight seeing. With the bicentennial of the War of 1812 this year (http://discover1812.com/page/home) there will be many special events taking place both in Ontario and New York - lots of photo opportunities. Thanks for sharing.

Regards

In April I was told, they will have their first event bluenose, so I think I will be makeing the run up there again to try and capture the whole story. I tried a couple in HDR and wasnt all that pleased. Perhaps being a novice had much to do with it.

Really like this one Emptyquiver. I have tried this type of shot a few times without much luck, you got it right.
