    Yep, I agree, that 1st shot is the 'gun' shot thanks to those ropes.

    Interesting piece of history too, thanks for including that.

    Great shots, very well done, I like them all.

    I would loved to have been able to take several different angled shots in between and behind those ropes but couldn't.
    They had that whole tie-down area barricaded off to keep people out....one of the guards was heading my way as soon as I took that first shot above to tell me to get out of there...
    Unfortunately I didn't have much time and had to get in and out of there fast...

    Thanks everybody for the comments....
