Impressions of Dungeness
Bulldozer shed at Dungeness.
Dungeness is formed mostly of a shingle beach in the form of a cuspate foreland. Cuspate forelands are also known as cuspate barriers or Nesses. They extend outwards from the shoreline in a triangular shape and in the case of Dungeness are stabilized by vegetation forming a unique eco system.
Dungeness is served by the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway. It has two nuclear power stations, one active and one shut down, as well as two light houses one of which was manned, now a tourist attraction and the other computer controlled. The shoreline, unlike a lot of the UK which is being eroded is actually being added to, so the original lighthouse became too far in land to warn shipping.
There is a long history of fishing from the beach where winches and bulldozers are used to haul boats up the high shingle bank.
The houses and fishermen’s huts form part of the charm of this amazing place.

Nikon D60 with Sigma 10-20 zoom.
HDR with filters and mist added. Five images put together with Photoshop CS3.

My main interests are landscape, wildlife and sports events.
I use a Nikon D40X, a Nikon D60 and a Nikon D3100.
The lenses are either Nikkor or Sigma or a Tamron 60mm Macro. I also have a small collection of vintage cameras.
I hope you enjoy my photography and keep coming back for more, as I am constantly working to increase my portfolio.

    This is a really creative use of HDR. I’m not generally a fan and this has none of those characteristics which usually put me off. The crispness of the shed’s edge against the foreboding mist is brilliant!

  • Thanks very much. I am new to HDR and wanted to enhance the photos that I used it on, rather than alter their whole structure. Thanks for your posetive comments, its great to hear you like it.
