Through The Lens, Trinidad & Tobago

Fort King George

Fort King George

Built in the 1770's by the British, Fort King George is one of the better preserved and more impressive forts in Tobago. It sits on a hill overlooking the capital of Scarborough. This building originally served as the officers' barracks and has been recently refurbished.

I had to adjust the perspective of this photo using Photoshop as I took it looking uphill at the fort. There was also a flagpole running straight up the middle of the photo that was cloned out.

I like the photo as it gives a good sense of the brooding grandeur of the fort, and also an idea of the well-manicured grounds.

Note, this shouldn't be mistaken for Fort George, which overlooks Port of Spain, in Trinidad.
