Very nice! I like the point of view you chose. I can't imagine manning one of these, spending days looking out at empty ocean, then suddenly seeing enemy sails on the horizon.

This fort is actually a Maine state park-not on the trodden path-but worth the side trip. You can see (4) lighthouses from the parapet. Still learning the history of the fort-a voluntary donation to enter which is unusual for a state park. Great spot for a picnic in the shade on a hot summer day-with a Gulf of Maine sea breeze

Very nice capture. Makes me wonder what it would be like firing a Cannon in wartime.

BTW, when I first read the title of your thread I was horrified that you might be using Canon equipment in a Pentax forum.

Very cool.....cannons are fun to shoot because they offer a perspective of the imagination.

Very interesting perspective. I have been to several Maine State Parks where they have a box for leaving a donation. I assume they do this only at the less frequently visited parks. My wife and I visit Portsmouth NH occasionally; I assume this park is just across the river from there. Perhaps we'll try to visit the next time we're in Portsmouth.

One of the bridges in Portsmouth is closed for repairs. Take the I-95 bridge then south off exit #2. Follow state route 103-very scenic route
