Orford Ness Island is a site of Special Scientific Interest, a grade 1 site in the Nature Conservation Review run by The National Trust. It is a 16km long shingle spit, that is now a wildlife reserve. A large part of The Ness was acquired by The War Department in 1913. The Central Flying School’s Experimental Flying Section was based here in 1915 which began a 70 year period of intense military experimentation leaving scars on the landscape as well as giving the island a mystique of secrecy.
Radar was developed here from 1935 until 1937 and later the development of the atomic bomb was
carried out on this site during the 1950’s, one of only a few places in the world used for such experiments.
It is now open to the public, but there are specifically marked trails due to the danger of unexploded ordnance still being present.
It is a great place for photography with a very unusual mixture of buildings and a fascinating history, as well as some diverse wildlife.

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.

    nice composition…perfectly framed with superb tones make this a 5* image..it looks like dungeness??? south coast..

  • Thanks very much John. This is a very similar place to Dungeness, a gravel spit off the coast of Suffolk rather than Kent. Same sort of landscape and an interesting place to visit.
