Netley Abbey in IR
Lens: Samyang 8mm Camera: Pentax K-7 
Posted By: karma mechanic, 04-01-2012, 09:49 AM

Netley Abbey is a ruined 13th-century Cistercian abbey near Southampton.
Today's visit was intended to be a recce for some more deliberate shots using the Samyang 8mm. I was hoping for some cirrus clouds but I got round ones instead, but still better than no clouds at all. As it turned out it became more than a recce.

All on the IR-converted K-7. Exteriors typically 1/80th at f/6.3, ISO 200, while the interiors were hand-held at ISO 800.







I arrived when it opened at 10, and three other photographers then arrived as I was getting out of the car. As far as I can see they spent their time doing close-ups of daffodils so nobody got in my 180-degree pictures... I did get some funny looks when I was crawling along on the ground poking the camera into patches of shadow though

Nice use of the wide angle. Looks like a fantastic place to photography (not the flowers).
