Maine Workshop, Day 5

The last day of the workshop dawned dark, gray, and rainy. Undaunted, our class traveled to Fort Knox. No, not in Kentucky, but Fort Knox State Park in Maine. No gold here, but a massive structure of granite and brick that was built to guard approaches to Bangor, Maine near the mouth of the Penobscot River.

Due to the rain, we worked mostly inside the fort, which featured many arched passageways and long, dark corridors. Many of the spaces were lit by narrow gun ports. The soft subdued light filtering in from the outside was ideal for long exposure images of the interior.

The interesting light also gave some opportunities for some HDR (High Dynamic Range) images.

This is a place where I could return again and again, finding new things on every trip. Unfortunately, it’s a day and a half drive from home, so I will have just have to find a way to take more Maine workshops to get me closer for at least a few days at a time.
