- On a unexpected visit to Fort Ross, estab. around 1812, I was taken by the light through the old glass windows. Beautiful warm tones from the aged hand hewn walls filled the room. A fine collection of old tools and beautiful antique hand planes lined the walls. Shooting handheld through a set of bars, I did my best to capture the light. I would love to be free to shoot this place from various perspectives.
