Skywatch Friday # 35

The interior of Old Fort Niagara, New York. October 25, 2008.

This is my entry for Sky Watch Friday, a weekly meme that allows you to see more of the sky from all over the world. Last week over 300 people shared their skies through this meme.  To see some beautiful skies from around world, or to join and share your sky photos with us, click HERE.

When Betsy and I visited by daughter and her husband in Buffalo last October, we also visited Old Fort Niagara.  The fort is at the entrance to the Niagara River not far from Niagara Falls and has been in existence since 1726.

It was a rainy, blustery day the afternoon we visited the fort.  I snapped this picture from the parade ground as more clouds moved in.  Since we were visiting an old military post, I couldn’t resist converting this to sepia.

    The slepia coloring is just perfect for this photo. Could have been taken yesterday or 100 years ago!

    Wonderful post George. Such a lot of history. The sepia is the very best approach I think. Really makes this fort seem as historic monument (which it is).

    Great photo! Happy SWF!

  16. Evita Says:

    George this looks so good, it looks as if you captured it a hundred years ago or so – as if it looked the way it did in its original day. Perhaps the coloring of the photo and the sky have added to this neat effect!
