    Got a chance to attend the 197th Anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans at the Chalmette National Park outside of New Orleans. the weather was just like the week of the battle, totally fogged in and rain soaked! was trying to decide which to take when the rain had stopped so I opted for the 12, 25, 45 and 45-200. one had to park and ride to the park.

    when you got off the bus you 1st encountered the American camp composed of the New Orleans militia, Lafitte pirates, Choctaw, Tennessee volunteers and US regular (Army and Navy).

    for the 1st canon fire demo, the fog was thick and could not get a focus lock with the 45-200. for the 2nd demo the fog started to burn off and the sun came out.

    Terrific images. Love the individual portraits. Real feel of characters. That misty light is so kind to the skin!
