093/365 Room with a view

093/365 Room with a view
The hills around Dover are littered with the ruins of military buildings and tunnels, many dating back to Napoleonic times or even earlier. This is a brief glimpse of one of of the fortifications that overlook the Western Docks. This was part of a gun emplacement that looked out over the English Channel - it is now in a pretty sorry state and not somewhere I would venture after dark.

Your photo certainly captures a grim looking environment - fascinating, but agree that it might be a bit frightening in the dark! Can imagine many a story of the former occupants which definitely makes this photo 'come alive'!

It makes a great photo though!

And yet it makes a fantstic photo. It's beautiful. Atmospheric. Decaying. I love it.

That said. I wouldn't go there alone in the dark.
