Conor Pass Hills and Clouds

This image broke my heart. I spent a long time trying to get the darkened sky layer and the brightened ground layer to merge nicely but I’m still not happy with it.

This small web version looks almost ok but I can still see the offending bits that are wrong.

Scart Road

Scart Road, or Bothar na Scairte in Bantry, Co. Cork.

When you leave the wide open area near the harbour in Bantry you come across really steep hills to the east. I happened to walk that way pushing a buggy so I had to stop and catch my breath here before heading on up.

Bantry is much bigger than I thought before and I should get some nice urban shots there the next time I’m down that way!
