Sun is setting over Fort Hancock

... at the north end of Sandy Hook, NJ

The original 1896 plan consisted of 32 buff brick buildings that included
officers quarters, barracks, a Bachelor Officers' Quarters, post headquarters,
hospital, guardhouse, quartermaster storehouse, and bakery. The heavier,
more costly buff colored brick was chosen because it was less porous than
traditional red brick. The foundations were either stone or brick and the
roofs were slate. The most impressive of the buildings were the 18 homes
on "Officers' Row." For these, Murray wanted a simple style not "lacking in
beauty." For simplicity and to reduce maintenance, they were without
gingerbread work. The four barracks, built across the parade ground
from Officers' Row, would have "handsome and massive porches."

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.

Love the way you chose this angle to introduce the trees (after we had the chance to see the buildings in the previous shot). The light loves the location!

@Japanalia: I found the curve more apparent from this angle and loved the light on the trees. ;)
