Great PaulVDV 2014-03-27 19:19

Hello Andrew,
I'm surprised that it is possible that one can walk up to that edge of the walls. Here in Europe, there would be a fence.
This certainly provides a very nice picture.
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: Fences

Hi Paul - I too was very surprised at the openness of the fort. A couple of my earlier shots from here were obtained by walking into a few of the wide cannon openings in the outer walls - openings which end in a sheer dropoff to rocks and the sea, with nothing to prevent someone from falling through. The same is true at the top of the fort, as this man demonstrates. I assume part of this is a desire to maintain historical integrity, but it does seem ill-conceived to me and I can't imagine they've never had an accident because of it.

Thanks for the kind comment!

Andrew
