  • Landguard fort - Felixstowe

    This was just playing about to see if I could join two images in Infinity Photo. It seems to work quite well.

    Landguard Fort is at the approach to Harwich Harbour and according to the blurb "was built in the 18th century, and modified in the 19th century, with substantial additional 19th and 20th-century outside batteries". It was manned through both World Wars before being disarmed and closed in 1956. It is now run by English Heritage and open to the public.

    Nice. The person on the left gives a good sense of scale. I had to use Google maps to see exactly where in the UK it is. I assume it was built primarily to guard against invasion from France.

        Nice shot. Quite an impressive structure.
        Fujifilm X-T5, XF16-80 f/4, XF70-300 f/4-5.6, XF23 f/2, XF35 f/2, XF150-600 f/5.6-8, and a random assortment of 35mm film cameras.

          It looks a fascinating place to visit, love the archtecture.
          Great work with the stitch. Affinity Photo does a good job.
          Almost as good as the Microsoft freebie Image Composite Editor (ICE).
          Give it a try and compare. You can download it from my website:
