Loch Bhaile na Hinse

While away in Connemara a few months ago with the ‘Viewpoints’ photographers Carsten Krieger and Peter Cox, this image was taken along the road (R341) to Roundstone.
We had left our B&B at 5:30 in the morning to get to the location to catch the sunrise. After a good few hours we headed back to the B&B to have breakfast. On the way back we came across a few locations that looked promising if you got the right light. After some breakfast we went our own ways and to meet back up again in the afternoon. I went back along the road out of Clifden (N59) and turned onto the R341. A few 100 meters passed the junction you can park your car off the road and walk back to the viewpoints in this image. The clouds had broken and the sun was out. What makes this image for me is the clouds and the reflections on the landscape. The contrast between the white clouds and the dark water. The different levels of midtones in the grass. The simple composition and the triangle shape the clumps of trees make. This image was taken with my Sony R1 camera (RIP). That’s another story to tell later.

>Low Light Photography.

>

The Navan Camera Club, which I am a member of, when out on Sunday evening last to shoot Trim Castle. The idea was to show the new members how to use their camera’s in low light conditions. One of the members of the Club, Reggie Smit who specialises in low light photography lead the way.( a link to his site can be found on the More Photographers section ) I took a few snaps as they say with the above been one of them.( colour again ). I will be uploading the rest of the images into the Sunset & Sunrise Gallery shortly. I used the Canon 5D with a 30seconds exposure @ F11 with the TS-E24mm lens as this was the only lens a had we me. Thanks to one of the other members who gave me his 24-105 lens to take a few images of just the castle with its reflections in the river.

The Silent Valley is located in the Mourne Mountains, Co. Down, Northern Ireland.
You have to pay £4 to enter the park, but can spend the whole day there. The Valley and surrounding landscape will keep to shooting for hours.
