Fort Popham at Sunrise

I captured this photo of historic Fort Popham last fall as the sun was rising, casting it’s warm glow on the fort.

Fort Popham, located at the mouth of the Kennebec River in Phippsburg, Maine, is a semi-circular granite fort built in 1861 for use during the Civil War. The fort’s intent was to defend against the Confederacy’s ironclad warships. Construction halted in 1869, though the fort was briefly garrisoned during the Spanish-American War, and again in WWI.

First we have the sign marking the site.
