Tuesday Photo Challenge – Curve
For this challenge, I included a google photo of Fort Macon in North Carolina, US, to provide a bird’s-eye view. We took photos of the curved walls and the cannon on top of the vaulted rooms of Fort Macon during our visit.
The Five-sided with curved corners Fort Macon is constructed of bricks and stones. Twenty-six vaulted rooms (also called casemates) are enclosed by outer walls that average 4 1/2 feet thick. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the region around Beaufort was highly vulnerable to attack. The successive wars with Spain, France and Great Britain during the Colonial Period provided a constant threat of coastal raids by enemy warships.
Fort Macon became the State Park, and was open to public since 1936. It won the 2015 North Carolina State Park of the Year.
