Guns of Murud

Posted by Ajay (Pune, India) on 10 December 2009 in Architecture.

This is one of the three really huge canons. Now the question that comes in anyone's mind... how were they shipped to the fort?

The answer is, they were not actually shipped to the fort but were assembled in the fort. How that was done would be more clear in my next photograph.

This shot has details all the way and nice color saturation as well. Well done :)

Point & shoot ! Actually, quite close, isn't it ?
Love that frame within the frame and the strong presence of the canon & colors.
Very well done, bravo !

I'm working my way backwards through your images! I feel as if I've been on vacation. Thank you...I needed one.

I really like this shot. The POV is great. I like the beautiful setting at a distance.
