Lindisfarne Castle


Nikon D70 @ 25mm, 2 secs, f/11, ISO 200


Previous · Current · Next


On the last day of our trip we took a trip to Holy Island to see Lindisfarne Castle. It's a really great place, and definitely worth a visit if you're ever nearby.

Unfortunately when we got there the weather was incredibly overcast, and all of my early shots were very dull, flat and boring. But I think all you need to be a decent landscape photographer is...

patience! And lots of it!

I saw that the clouds in the distance were clearing and so we went for a wander to kill some time. After about 45 minutes the sun finally showed itself. Great, I thought. But the causeway was about to close in 20 minutes or so and as much as I liked the place I didn't fancy being stranded there! So this shot was taken incredibly quickly - I practically ran to a location I had spotted earlier, and fired off a number of shots. This particular one was shot in infra red and converted in PS.

Wow!
Wonderful shot!
The castle seems to jump out from the fantasy world.
Dreamy!

Really excellent shot, and even more so considering the haste with which you took it. The sky is so dark and ominous!

Gorgeous! I've been to Lindisfarne castle before - but I was very young. It was so windy walking across the causeway you could lay back in the wind and it held you up hehe. It's such a shame I didn't get into photography at an earlier age, because i've been on so many school trips to great places and have no record of them :/

Jem, I'm definitely with you on wishing I had become interested in photography at an earlier stage of my life. It's such a good way to record the different places you've been to and seen. But then again, think of all the great places you'll be going to to in the years to come!

Sorry for missing your comment first time round Val. I use a Hoya R72 filter for my IR shots. Email me if you want more detailed info.

Thanks!
