Taken September 1

This is Fort Amherst and "The Narrows" - the entrance to St. John's harbour. There's a small lighthouse at the end. The concrete structures are gun bunkers left over from WWII - to defend against the German U-boats (we also had nets strung across the harbour to keep them out - and they were around because not far from here 4 ore carriers were sunk by the U-boats & 60 men killed).

Crystal clear and beautiful color! I like the use of the yellow flowers in the foreground. Looks like a perfect day!

The more you showcase NFLD, the more inclined I'm to visit.
I should stop talking about it and simply book a ticket.

This is super high-def! I love the slopes and the channel of water leading to the horizon out to sea!

Beautiful scenic. I like the light, colors, and composition. I, too, found the historical notes informative and of interest.

Very historic location. I had no idea this had happened up there. Good seacoast photo.
