Welcome to my blog, this is where I post random images, thoughts and musings on photography.  This is kind of a diary and not all photos will be the end product. Its basically a dump for all my ideas and mental chatter. All opinions are my own and should usually be taken with a pinch of salt. 

Shouth Shields at the weekend

On Sunday we decided to have a little drive out along the Northumberland coast. Normally we head northwards, mainly due to being north of the Tyne, however this time we decided to head the other way. I didn't really have in mind to take any photos, but as a diligent photographer I put my camera in the car. In the end we stopped off by the Marsden Grotto pub. The pub itself is really interesting, built into caves in the cliff, with a really interesting looking lift structure leading down from the top. Unfortunately the drink and food selection doesn't really live up to its surroundings, but I captured a couple of nice images of the exterior.

Now I have to say I am a bit of a hypocrite, I hate HDR images with a real passion. However, I do have to admit that it is quite easy to get caught up in it as the process is quite fun even if the results are not to my tastes.

So here's on I produced from three bracketed, handheld exposures. I would have used a tripod, but I left it in the car.

Thanks for reading, any feedback or questions welcome.
