Early morning at Fort Tabor

Early morning at Fort Tabor

This morning I went for an early morning walk in Fort Tabor here in New Bedford its a spot I do love walking around, especially early morning when it is cool with the hot days we are having and not many people there.
Now I haven't even got this mornings photos of my camera yet, but it did remind me I had this first image in this post, which I had edited recently but not shared in a post so I decided to find some more from Fort Tabor to share in this post.

I have seen this lighthouse structure on top of Fort Rodman many times but I dont think I have taken a shot of it like this before, the colors and light in the sky worked well for this shot, well at least I think so.
I was curious about a lighthouse being on top of the fort and did some research, back around 1804 a standard lighthouse stood at this point which is Clarks Point, but now more often called Fort Tabor Park

in the 1840s, the construction of Fort Rodman began, As the seven-sided, granite fort grew it began to block the lighthouse’s beam, necessitating the relocation of the lantern room and keepers quarters to the top of Fort Taber in 1869

The abandoned 1804 tower stood near the fort until it was demolished in 1906.

The story behind the light house makes sense.

The beach is beautiful. I am especially loving the the third photo

I agree with you about the first picture. The sky really enhances the lighthouse. I enjoy early morning walks, especially this time of the year.

What beautiful images, they generate a kind of tranquility and inspiration, I imagine myself on the shores of that harbor watching the brushstrokes of the clouds.

The pier shots are always great. The sky over the fort in both shots is incredible. That first shot hit me funny...my first reaction was guard tower looking out over prison wall haha

I love these storm clouds that are colorized by the morning sun in the first two photos, JJ, and the penultimate shot is my favourite today.

It's always a pleasure, my friend 😊

Thanks for asking, JJ, I am fine.
In the past few days, I have either been at work or in the mountains ... or I was sleeping because I've been tired from hiking 😂 !LOLZ
If it had not been raining during the night, I would be on a mountain right now, but so I have time to do my replies and some photo editing ... and enjoy a lazy Sunday 😉

Wishing you a fabulous Sunday 🌞


Have a !PIZZA from me, served with !LUV

I love all images, the effect of blue in photography is simply amazing and the rising of the sun makes it even more beautiful since the rays give lovely reflections onto the clouds.
