Description Fire Control Towers #5 and #6 exist as a pair of coastal watch towers along the section of beach north of Rehoboth Beach, DE, on a stretch known as Whiskey Beach. This is a solitary photograph of FCT #5 and would make an excellent piece of art for any World War II history buff's home or office.Fort Miles and The Fire Control Towers of the Delaware Coast and Cape Henlopen provide a glimpse into the Coastal Defense of the United States during World War II.
Bill Swartwout Photography, Fenwick Island, DE Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement Welcome to one of my homes on the Web. Photography has been a part of me for more than half a century. I grew up in a small family that moved around the country a lot. I did wedding photography and aerial photography to work my way through college. Thus, my affinity for travel, pictures and adventure.
Mother Nature is my favorite artist. I endeavor to share some of her creations in my landscape and seascape photographs.
Today, our Internet business involves travel - and we do like to travel. I have been accumulating imagery of places we have been and am selecting some of the more interesting shots to illustrate those places. My favorites, of course, are of my former home town Baltimore and where I now reside at the beach near Fenwick Island, Delaware, just north of Ocean City, Maryland. At the beach I photograph water and boardwalk scenes and bridges and jetties with varying light qualities. In the "big city" I enjoy the myriad styles of building architecture and, always, the touristy images. Bon Voyage. :)
