Cooper's Island - Ruins I

There was 54 years of US Military presence in Bermuda. Before leaving in 1995, they had occupied more than 10 percent of the 21 square mile area.

The bases were built from scratch in 1941-2 and financed solely by taxpayers in the States. Bermuda held a very strategic position in WW II.

The remaining ruins are an interesting contrast to the backdrop of turquoise waters and stretches of pink, sandy beaches. The interiors hold intriguing textures, atmospheres and an eerie sense of history.
