My prefix adds a lot of grain

My infix emits a powerful shine

If you'd come destroy my base

I wouldn't be on time

Finishing what MacGyver88 started, you are

ISOLATE

My prefix adds a lot of grain

ISO - the larger an images' ISO rating is, the grainier it is

My infix emits a powerful shine

SOL - the sun, just as MacGyver88 suggested

If you'd come destroy my base

I wouldn't be on time

LATE - not on time, again as MacGyver88 suggested

Title

ISOLATE - "an individual socially withdrawn or removed from society", according to Merriam-Webster

You could be

DESOLATE

My prefix adds a lot of grain

DES - maybe an acronym for something dealing with grains (food, grainy picture, small things ???)

My infix emits a powerful shine

SOL - the sun

If you'd come destroy my base

BY REMOVING THE FIRST TWO PARTS, or desolate - synonym of destroy

I wouldn't be on time

LATE - not on time

Title

DESOLATE - could refer to a lonely, out of the way place.

  • $\begingroup$ You're so nearly there, you picked up more hints than I meant though ;). Only the prefix isn't as I meant. $\endgroup$ – SoftwAir Feb 11 '20 at 7:07
  • $\begingroup$ @SoftwAir, It was a toss-up between the two. I went with my gut. I read a little too deep into it. No worries. :) $\endgroup$ – MacGyver88 Feb 11 '20 at 13:41
