Knightstone Island

I know I’ve shown images of Knightstone Island before but this is slightly different. It’s from Knightsone Island looking along the causeway towards Dauncys Hotel. Knightstone Island historically housed a theatre, swimming pool and sauna. After years of disrepair and dereliction, the area was redeveloped by Redrow Homes. During 2006/2007, luxury apartments were built on the site.

At high tides the causeway is often covered by the sea. In earlier posts here I have shown the danger of this as people try to walk along the causeway when the tide is already washing over it. I’ve also posted an article about a stormy night on Knightstone Island.

Technical Note: Image is a bracket of 3 RAW from -2 to +2 in 2 EV steps taken with a Samsung GX10 fitted with an 18-50mm kit lens @ 18mm. ISO 100, f8, shutter speeds from 4 sec to 15 sec. Camera was mounted on a RedSnapper RS-284 & RSH-12 Ball Head and the shutter was fired using infra-red remote control. HDR processing was with Unified Color‘s HDR Express

    Steve….thought it was time to go back and do some HDR work. Too much wildlife recently. I’m now using HDR Express full time for all my HDR stuff as I can get very natural looking HDR images with it
