Fort Stark

A couple of week’s ago, I showed a view of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Well, if you have a naval shipyard, you must protect it. During the two World Wars, Fort Stark protected the mouth of Portsmouth Harbor. Now decommissioned and the guns scraped it is a park. You can access some parts of the fort but other parts are off limits due to structural concerns.

With good weather yesterday, I headed to the coast to make some photos and get back to using new materials. My plans were to visit a WWII fort and the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse. The government had other ideas about my visiting the lighthouse. It sits on a Coast Guard Station and was off limits today. I’d visited last summer and noticed a way to the light house along the beach. I made my way over there and well, the image below shows how well that worked. Luckily, I had a tele-zoom lens with me and could make some images from a far. Cheers!
