I guess I just carried my camera everywhere in those days (and was in a line of work where I saw a lot of sunrises and sunsets ) I am also quite the fan of beams from clouds, so they're rather over-represented in my gallery
Unfortunately, I don't have many other pictures from Loughcrew, sorry. Not submittable ones, at any rate
Thanks so much for your kind words - they're quite inspiring! (and it just so happens that I bought a new camera a few days ago...)
OK.... so, did you cut a deal with Mother Nature that whenever she was thinking about to getting all dramatic with the sky she'd wait until you were out and about with you camera? However it happens you have a way of capturing sunsets.... and mystic suns (it's what I call them when the sun shines down through the clouds or the trees in a forest looking like a spot light). Thanks for these. And, hey, if you have any more pictures of Loughcrew, please post them. I live 8000 miles away and I forgot to bring my camera that day.
This is a great wallpaper. And a lovely shot . I love the sillouhetted landscape, it's something that always grabs my attention in photos as well as the hazy mountains in the background. I really love it. Not to mention the clouds, which just look stunning. Excellent work on this one .
Thanks I actually find it hard to decide where to put my icons with this one (they always seem to get in the way of the picture!) but hopefully other people who like it will find a way to make it work. Mmm, I like silhouettes too. Sometimes I make a point of including them, though in this case I suspect they were just in the way, so I thought what the hell
I'm glad this one came out, because it tends to look really gorgeous there in the morning and I'm never able to capture it on "film". Granted this appears much darker than reality because of the short exposure time, but at least the clouds have that lovely bright, blurry quality as in real life. I think they look that way because they're so low. Some mornings I'd see them waft right by me, so low I could almost have touched them, beautifully illuminated by the sun, but couldn't for the life of me capture them in a photo. You win some you lose some I guess.
Really? I wasn't too far behind my every-4-day habit (according to my stats), and considering I'd just submitted about a million the previous week, I would have thought you'd be pleased for the reprieve But thanks for the encouragement. It's nice to hear
Ooh goody, constructive! (But I should say that no apologies would have been necessary for nonconstructive praise. I do it all the time myself...)
Wow, what a lovely description. Yes, it is unusual the way the clouds are slightly rainbow coloured like that. I've seen iridescent clouds before, but these are a bit different because it's just the top of them that has this property. And yep, those are mountains in the distance (and I believe the white bit is a lower cloud, off in the distance). It's a very scenic place and looks quite charming early in the morning, but I am rarely able to capture it properly, for some reason, so I'm glad this one came out. Epic composition? Why thank you very much. What a wonderful compliment. Much appreciated
I can understand that jealousy, but bear in mind that this trip was not all fun and games. The few minutes of pretty scenery only just compensated for the seemingly endless string of compulsory, laborious 15-hour work days. If that's any consolation.
