All finished at Hurst Castle by noon Wednesday, with the last bits of fiddly photography on the interiors of the gun battery and watch post (circular buildings are not ideal for rectified photos!). It’s been a great few days with very nice weather, but unfortunately the bright sunlight made for some challenging photography as my shadow constantly got in the way of shots!
It’s been a good opportunity to be refreshed in using GPS systems and working with a Leica total station, with great help from my HE colleagues. The next step now we’re back in the office is to process the data to produce the accurate plans requested – another new process to learn for my placement!
Of course, I had to take some photos of the friendly animals we met on the trip, including Lancelot, the hotel’s ginger tom cat, and two black labs from Hurst Castle who accompanied us on the ferry ride back to dry land.
