Rossall Point, Fleetwood

Rossall Point, a beautifully bleak coastal area nestled between Cleveleys and Fleetwood, just north of Blackpool. The landscape is dominated by an architecturally striking observation tower used by the coast guard and public alike, that overlooks Morecambe bay out towards the Irish sea.

I had one hour to spare, and decided to use the time for some peace and quiet and do some walking while practicing my landscape photography skills (something I neglect far too much). The lighting was quite bland and flat, with little or no contrast. I’m not a massive fan of HDR, but bracketing can be a useful tool for capturing exposures in less than favourable lighting conditions. A bracketing technique of seven exposures of +/- 0.7 ev was used on my Olympus OMD EM-5 (mark one) with a manual focus Neewer 28mm f2.8 lens.
