Fort Popham, Maine - I captured this image inside one of the spiral stairways at the fort - I got down real low and used a wide lens which allowed for this perspective.

Tamron 18-270 Di at 18mm. ISO 1250, Late-Afternoon, 1/30 @ f7.1, EC 0 It was dark and not much color so I converted to B&W with NIK Silver Efex. (EoD)

Exif: F Number: 7.1, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/30 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1250, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 18.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 50D
