Flamborough Head Yorkshire (pictures ruined)

Flamborough Head Yorkshire –

The weather yesterday was unseasonably warm and sunny for mid-February, I headed out in the car to Flamborough Head in East Yorkshire, England (UK).

My photography goal yesterday was to come back with some nice Focus Stacks (Focus stacking is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focus distances to give a resulting image with a greater depth of field than any of the individual source images.) I had a great day and came home with many images that needed stacking in Photoshop. As I looked at the images in Lightroom I soon realised that something was very wrong, the images were exposure brackets and not focus brackets! I could not believe I didn’t notice what was going on out in Flamborough, but I didn’t 🙁

I have since looked in the menus on my new Fujifilm X-T2 and found one single setting that was wrong. That setting ruined 80% of my images, a hard lesson well learned.

Here are some of the images that were not focus stacked and unaffected by my mistake 🙂

The above image was taken as the tide came in giving my tripod legs a salty bath. This is a 2-minute exposure using the excellent X-T2 kit lens.

The Dinosaur Flamborough Head

As lovely as the sunrise was, I was a little unlucky, the tide was out and there were hardly any clouds in the sky. It was nice to feel the sun on my face though, the morning was quite cold at first before developing into a beautiful day.

A slightly wonky pano taken at North Landing just up the coast later in the day. I had not levelled my tripod enough but not to worry, I was enjoying myself.

A long exposure as the sea came in over the rocks at Flamborough Head in East Yorkshire, England (UK).

I had to keep looking behind me to make sure I didn’t get cut off by the tide. An image is just not worth it, this time all was Ok, I was careful.

  1. Still beautiful pictures Tim, the main thing is that you enjoyed yourself and it is another excuse to visit. I’ve done the same on one particularly epic weekend trip and the whole time I was shooting at maximum ISO. I had wondered why the camera was quick, but never checked! The photos were very grainy….

    • Maximum ISO, I have done that before Chris and have the T-Shirt! I did enjoy myself and the cafe up there did a great breakfast! I will never be thin 🙂

      The main thing as you very much know is getting out there and enjoying the day/weekend. Photography would get boring if we’re not continually learning I’m sure.

      I typed this post just after I got up this morning and I can tell judging the number of typing errors I have just corrected 🙂

      Thank you for the kind words mate…

  2. De los errores se aprende, Tim, y más cuando estás manejando una cámara nueva para ti…
    De todas formas, las imágenes que sí has conseguido son fantásticas!
    La primera y la última me gustan especialmente!
    Saludos y mucha diversión!

      Thank you for your kindness and support dear Esperanza…

  3. (Joke) All those in fear for my tripod don’t worry! I have since used a hosepipe in the garden to remove the salt with fresh water and once dry gave the legs a thin coat of 3-in-1 oil using kitchen roll. My tripod loves me again ❤
