Walking the Ramparts #7
Morning over the walls of the 17th century Dutch fort of Galle, in Sri Lanka. Shot from the Triton Bastion in May 2015. The rampart on the left stretches to the Vlagklip Bastion in the distance. Inside the walls is the old town. The Vlagklip Bastion (also known by its later English name, Flagrock) is the southernmost point of Fort Galle and, beyond it, the Indian Ocean stretches 8,000km, almost unbroken, to the Antarctic.
