A 3 shot HDR processed in Photomatix Pro

Newark Priory was established in the late 12th Century by Rauld de Calva and his wife Beatrice de Saudes for Augustian canons. It was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and Thomas Beckett and was a “novo loco” – a new place for monks from nearby.]The Priory’s name changed over the years to Newstead and then finally Newark.] During King Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries Newark Priory was Dissolved.The prior itself was pensioned off, valuables sent to the Tower of London and the land given to the Master of the Kings Horse. It has been said that a cannon was employed from the top of Church Hill to bombard or demolish, what were, the then extensive buildings. This incident is portrayed in one of a series of paintings made by artist Tessa Kewen.] The last known prior of Newark Priory was Richard Lipscombe, appointed just before the surrender of the house in 1538. The building falling into ruin, was said to have been further destroyed by locals using the stones for road mending; until Lord Onslow, the owner in the 1730s, decided to preserve what remained.

Ever since a child, aviation has been a keen interest of mine, with warbirds being my favourite. Since joining Redbubble, I have become a keen follower of HDR work, which I am concerntrating on at the moment.
