This is the Battery Gunnison in Sandy Hook, NJ. , it was built in 1904 and utilized during the war until it was decommissioned in 1949. It was a rapid fire battery with a mission to protect the coastline of New York and New Jersey from smaller vessels that could move quicker than battleships.This 6 inch gun along with it’s companion rifle located directly behind me could propel a projectile a distance of 8 miles into New York Harbor.
Compared to today’s weapons, this gun is truly old fashioned. This is a 3 shot HDR with a very realistic look to it.

  1. You did it again….another winner HDR image! Love the natural look to this and really love the details in the shadow and highlights! Very nice.

  2. You’re becoming a master of the HDR image – very nice! I also like the way the lines lead your eye to the gun – all the more important since the barrel gets a little lost in the tree, but those leading lines make sure you don’t miss it.
