Appley Tower in snowstorm

Image Location : captured this morning down on Ryde seafront.

It was snowing hard and that only happens about every 5 or 6 years on the island. This is Appley Tower near Ryde on the Isle of Wight. This Victorian folly built about 1875 is just above the sandy beach. The castle tower is circular, with battlements, a turret and an external stair. It has Gothic Revival tracery windows, and an oriel window facing the sea. It is now a local landmark situated in Appley Park.

This image was captured in the morning, using a hand-held Panasonic Lumix G9 camera with a Leica G Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 lens set to 20mm (equivalent to 40mm on a full frame camera). The lens was focused on the tower and the camera was set to aperture priority f/8 giving just a 1/125th of a second exposure at ISO 200 with daylight white balance. The RAW processing and final adjustments were all done in Photoshop CC.
