Artist's Description

View looking down the barrel of one of the 6inch guns at Greys Point Gun Fort, Co Down, N Ireland.

The 6-inch Mk VII gun, together with the 9.2 inch Mk X gun, provided the main coast defence throughout the British Empire, from the early 1900s until the abolition of coast artillery in the 1950s.

Many guns were specially built for army coast defence use, and following the decommissioning of many obsolete cruisers and battleships after World War I, their 6-inch Mk VII guns were also recycled for coast defence.

Taken with my Nikon D3100 using a Tamron 70-300mm telephoto lens and edited in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
