Glendalough Lower Lake

Glendalough derives it’s name from the Irish name for the area, “Gleann Da Loch” which roughly translates as “glen of the two lakes”. It was a cold enough day so we only got a good look at the lower lake, but I’m looking forward to visiting again!

  1. Gr8 to see a fellow irish photoblog! Thanks 4 ur recent comments….

    This is a lovely shot – well done. Composition is pretty good and seems nice and clear…only distraction is the blown out sky – but thats what happens in Ireland..if your camera allow u to shoow in RAW you can sometimes repair it….Thans and keep up the good work…PC

  2. I’ve learned a few techniques using gradients in Photoshop that allow you to recover some sky. It’s very difficult to get it just right though. Might be worth investing in a split neutral density filter.

  3. Thanks for the comments, it was even nicer than the photo shows!
    I thought about working on the sky but I don’t have time these days for much post-processing and I found it pleasing the way it was!
