Skywatch Friday #3: Guardian

"Shore Battery"
Ft. Macon, NC - November 2000 (Click to embiggen)

Sky Watch Friday

It seemed fitting to have a big gun under a leaden sky. This is Fort Macon, NC. Once a stronghold for Confederate troops during the Civil War, the fort was used as a shore battery to repel enemy warships until the end of World War II. Now it serves only as a historical site... and a reminder of a grim past.
