  1. Here are three snaps from Fort Laramie taken on a very hot June day. the two interior shots were taken through thick protective glass barriers.

    2nd Cavalry squad bay, restored to ca. 1872. Sigma 10-20 @ 19mm, f/11, 1s.

    The captain's quarters has beautiful interior rooms - a parlor, formal dining room, kitchen, child's bedroom, etc., but the sun streaming through those rooms' windows coupled with ghosting reflections through the glass barricades at that time of day (around 10:30 a.m.) prevented me from capturing any decent shots of those. Maybe next year I'll pass through in the evening - lol.

  2. Excellent job, Eric. I especially like the first one. Difficult to get indoor shots that look that well-lit.

    I remember stopping by that fort several years ago. They've done a top-notch job of restoration.
     
  3. Outstanding work...beautiful.
     
  4. nice work to manage not to loose the image with the thick glass...never works for me. db
