This weekend my Better Half and me got in the car and drove over to Old Town Fredrikstad, a beautifully preserved fortified town founded in 1567. The fortifications standing today dates from 1660 to about 1740 - there were older  sconces from about 1630, but those were torn down as a very lovely example of a star fortification was built, with outer works and bastions considered one of the strongest in Northern Europe at the time. Today the area is considered a lovely spot for a walk, with tons of waterfowls in the well preserved moat.

We did off course bring a camera - a Nixon CoolPix P900, which have a pretty damn nice optics built in. Open the images to view them in their full detail Smile
