Lynmouth Weekend – 1

This is another image from our weekend with the family in Lynmouth, North Devon.  We arrived first, on a rather grey, late February afternoon.  The light was going, but we just had time for a very quick walk down from our rented cottage into Lynmouth.  This first image from a Lynmouth series is looking up the River Lyn from the road bridge.  Since the light was going and the colour image was a bit ‘flat’, I thought it would be good to try another B&W image.  It was another chance to play with the newly acquired NIK collection.  This time I picked a B&W preset from the HDR Efex Pro 2 tool and applied it to a single exposure.  Apart from the ‘halo’ between the sky and the treeline, I was quite pleased with the result after I had made some fine adjustments.  I should have taken time to remove the halo, but time is in short supply at the moment.

Our cottage was a couple of ‘zig zags’ up the road on the left hand side of the picture.  We needed to do ‘3 point turns’ to get around the corners.

I hope to continue posting images from Lynmouth, but maybe not as a continuous series.
