Windsor Castle and the River Thames - HDR by 

A 3 Shot HDR processed in Photomatix Pro

Camera Fuji S100FS

Windsor Castle, in Windsor in the English county of Berkshire, is the largest inhabited castle in the world and, dating back to the time of William the Conqueror, is the oldest in continuous occupation. The castle’s floor area is approximately 484,000 square feet (44,965 square metres).

Together with Buckingham Palace in London and Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, it is one of the principal official residences of the British monarch. Queen Elizabeth II spends many weekends of the year at the castle, using it for both state and private entertaining. Her other two residences, Sandringham House and Balmoral Castle, are the Royal Family’s private homes.

Most of the Kings and Queens of England, later Kings and Queens of Great Britain, and later still kings and queens of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms, have had a direct influence on the construction and evolution of the castle, which has been their garrison fortress, home, official palace, and sometimes their prison. Chronologically the history of the castle can be traced through the reigns of the monarchs who have occupied it. When the country has been at peace, the castle has been expanded by the additions of large and grand apartments; when the country has been at war, the castle has been more heavily fortified. This pattern has continued to the present day.

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.

    A tremendous, picture postcard, shot. Great work!!!!, Bill

  • Thanks Bill, had been waiting for days for the clouds to be right, and had to take the shot in late afternoon to get the sun right. Luckily We have a holiday home by the thames in Windsor, so when the 2012 ollypics are on, lookout for me during the rowing, as we are only 100 yards away from the Olympic rowing course, just on the otherside of the river !!
