A member of An Garda Síochána directed traffic in Blarney last night when Santa visited and the lights were turned on in the village.
This is a long exposure zoomed shot, of about one second duration with the flash firing at the end of the exposure.
If you’ve timed it right the flash will fire when you’re zoomed in right. They’ll be lit by the flash and any background lights will appear as streaks going towards them. It’s hard to get right and not overexpose your subject so keep practising!

The Garda Station in Bantry Co Cork is quite a distinctive building, especially alongside the more traditional shops and houses of the town.

On Friday morning around 5am the Gardai on duty at Blarney Garda Station were called away on what turned out to be a hoax. Unfortunately while they were out the Garda station was attacked, the front door kicked down and firebombs thrown into the rooms downstairs. The building itself is quite old and burned quickly. Luckily the blaze was seen by a security guard from a nearby hotel or much more damage could have been done.
The building is unusable now of course. A Garda has been posted outside since, and this afternoon forensics were examining the site.
