Gougane Barra

Gougane Barra Forest Park, what a location, near Ballingeary (R584) Co Cork.

Too start with that’s the Moon in the image and not a dust spot. The image was taken very close to mid-day and the Moon was still visible with a bit of waiting so that it was clear of the clouds. We had lovely side lighting and wonderful cloud formations, perfect conditions for once. The camera was tilted upwards to remove the lake as there was nothing of interest for the foreground. We walked further up the road and came across a fence which you just make out on the bottom left of this image. I will post that image later to give you another viewpoint.

Glengarriff Bay

This image of Glengarriff Bay looking out towards Bantry Bay was taken on the second day from the South West Trip with Peter last week. The weather was changing all the time with sun one minute and clouds the next. We found a path down to the waters edge just before you drive into Glengarriff village. I took a lend of Peters Lee Polariser filter to bring out the details in the rocks under the water rock pool in the foreground. As always the ND Grad filters were in use with this image and you can take it as written that this filters is always used for all my landscape images so as to hold the details in the sky.

Back from Cork

Well I’m back now from my few days down with Peter Cox. I was staying with Peter in a place called Ballingeary, Co Cork. We had a couple of long days of shooting and interesting weather. However the final day was a wash out with rain, low clouds as the above image shows, but was still able to get a couple of images and this shows you don’t have to have blue sky’s and fluffy white clouds to capture a moody black and white photo. In this image you can just make out The Caha Mountain range on the Beara Peninsula taken from the Co Kerry side.
You can look forward to more images from this trip including Gougane Barra (what a wonderful place ), Glengarriff and Bantry Bay.
