This image was created from 3 separate exposures to extract as much detail from the scene as possible. The coastline here is a photographer’s dream; wide, dramatic skies and miles of beach and sand dunes while remaining relatively free from people to hinder your shots.

The technical details: This image was taken on 28th October 2010 with a Nikon D90 fitted with a Tokina 11-16  f/2.8 wide-angle zoom lens. Photomatix HDR software was used to combine the 3 exposures (1/160, 1.640, 1/2500) at f/10 and then some minor adjustments were made using Photoshop CS5.  The image size is 2715 x 4110 pixels at a resolution of 300 dpi.

Here is a short synopsis about Spurn Head from the BBC:

“Spurn Point is one of the most striking features of Britain’s coastline, stretching for three and a half miles across the Humber Estuary.

This curving spit is only 50 metres wide in places, making it look like an elongated tongue.

Spurn is made up of a series of sand and shingle banks held together by Marram grass and Seabuckthorn.

There is a series of sea defence works built by the Victorians and maintained by the Ministry of Defence, till they sold Spurn to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in the 1950s.

Spurn’s environment is very fragile and is open to the ravages of the North Sea.

Spurn Point is an important wildlife haven for migrant birds, lizards, roe deer and numerous species of insects.

Fossil hunting is popular with an abundance of fossils to be found amongst the pebbles on the beach.”
