Grey Point Fort

I purchased the DJI Mini 3 Pro in the autumn of 2022 and it has impressed me every time I take off. I managed to snap this shot of Grey Point Fort as the sun was setting on a cold, damp late December evening. The Fort itself has been closed for the last few years due to Covid and a consultation is being undertaken to secure its future. The wide-angle image captured as a stitched composite highlights the short peninsula the fort sits on, protruding into Belfast Lough. Paired with a similar fort across the water at Kilroot, Belfast Lough was covered with four 6-inch Mark VII guns until 1956 when the coastal artillery regiments were disbanded.
