A Field Trip in Fort George (the Citadel)

My first photographic love was the military fortifications around Halifax, and it is always a pleasure to return to it, even in the cold of winter.

Much of this visit to Fort George was spent working my longest lens (the Sigma 120-400mm) as I didn't have a chance to really spend the time I'd prefer to compose; all the same the reults are really pleasing, with winter being hinted at from time to time, without being the centre of the images.

The alcoves along the main entrance to the fort have long facinated me - the simple grace of their finish in granite, and the soft shadows contrasting the hard edges never fail to please.
