Ribblehead Viaduct HDR


New Year’s Resolution: to post more stuff to this blog. So here goes!

During the Christmas / New Year Holiday I found myself unexpectedly on holiday on the Cumbria-Yorkshire border. (“Unexpectedly” in this context means that I probably don’t plan my holidays in the same way as normal people do. But I digress.) Once I realised I was only about an hour’s drive from the iconic Ribblehead Viaduct – centrepiece of the fabled Settle and Carlisle railway line – it would have been rude not to go and photograph it!

The photos were taken with a Nikon D300 DSLR and Tokina 12-28mm wide angle lens.  As I didn’t have a laptop on holiday with me, post-processing was done “in the cloud” and on my Android smartphone using the app “Photo Editor by dev.macgyver”.  HDR was generated from sets of either 5 or 7 bracketed images at 1.0EV separation. In absence of a tripod, the camera was held still using a beanbag-type neck cushion (which I find very effective as an emergency tripod!) and triggered using a Phottix Aion wireless remote.

    Stunning, absolutely fab. One thing missing – a Black 5 hauled freight!
