Fall River Heritage State Park and Battleship Cove

This blog is different than my usual blog.  It is not about the natural area around us and the creatures that inhabited, but about an interesting location to go and visit.  It is the Fall River Heritage State Park, which is on the shoreline of the Taunton River in Fall River, Massachusetts.  Surrounding this 8 1/2 acre park Is Battleship Cove, which is the largest collection of decommissioned warships in the world.  The center of battleship Cove is the battleship USS Massachusetts.

It also includes the USS Joseph P.  Kennedy, Junior.,  USS Lionfish, PT Boats, USS Fall River and the Hiddensee.
There is also a restored 1920s carousel from the, Lincoln Park amusement park.
We arrive prior to sunset, noting that there were clouds in the sky and hoping for a colorful sunset.  However, no colorful sunset, but was able to obtain multiple pictures of the area.  Most of my pictures were 3 picture bracket's and and I edit the pictures, utilizing NIK software, mainly HDR Efex Pro, color Efex Pro 4, VIVEZA and  also used Topaz software Star Effects.  The main post processing was performed in Light Room 4.
