Sunset and the beach with my wife and my camera. Life if great when you just slow down and enjoy it.
More from the Burren today. I have spent a fair amount of time here in the last little while so expect some Burren shots this week :-) This is just a freelensing sunset looking over the landscape. Its flat and rocky but the rocks are full of crevices with wild flowers growing everywhere. That is Galway bay in the picture.
I was processing shot from last week and I came across this one with very shallow DOF and I just thought I would share it because I like it.
I was out photographing this old house and taking quite long exposures to get enough DOF at night. I took 10 shots all together but it seemed every one was just 5 seconds too long because a car would come along each time just at the end of the shot.
“The miller returns” is a statue in the middle of the village in the middle of the river. Its so awkwardly placed that it seems impossible to get a good shot of it, but that just makes me try harder.
Passing the local chipper on the way home today and I was taken aback by all the colour. There are multiple light sources, loads of different colours of paint and best of all.. there are no people :-) So I setup the shot and hoped it would work out. As you can see.. it didnt really work out but sometimes you have to share the failures as well. Obviously I will be back to see if I can get a good shot of the place in the future.
Out today taking photos at sunset. The only giveaway that it is sunset is that it is getting darker because the cloud cover at night these days is quite heavy. Anyway, I was down by the river using the tripod to try and get used to it again and this was just a test shot I took of the river as it flows out of the village. I love the place because the sounds of the village are all behind you and the sound of the water flowing on towards the sea is all there is in front of you.
