The Civil War at Night – Fort Clinch Under the Stars in HD

2013 09 Fine Fort Clinch 05 Civil War at Night

If you’ve followed us for any time, you probably know I am fascinated and moved by the heroes and horrors of the American Civil War.  Last week, we had the pleasure of shooting an event for Inovalon, which included a beautiful evening at Fort Clinch, a Civil War-era fort on the the northern tip of Amelia Island.  The fort itself has a relatively bloodless, but none the less fascinating history that I always enjoy.  To learn (and see) more about the fort, please feel free to visit our post on the 150th Anniversary of Union capture of the Fort.

But back to this shoot – while there I had the opportunity to capture some fine art images for our client as well as the typical event photos we provide.  The evening looked like rain, but by dusk a sliver of sky was lit ablaze by the setting sun, making for some amazing conditions for that Ken Burns style of sunset photography you may have seen during his documentary, The Civil War. The group was also treated to a pair of twilight field artillery firings courtesy of the a great group of civil war reenactors attached to the fort (below).
