Rusty old fence at the Conor Pass

A rusty old fence is all that protects you from a nasty fall down a fairly steep hill down to the valley floor at the Conor Pass.

    I really love this shot Donncha – a very nice one that holds special memories for me. My dear old departed Da (God rest his soul) drove me over the Conor Pass quite a few times, and I even got to walk over there as a younger lad. Could I dare to ask how much a print might be?

    Very nice work. Is that off-camera flash I see?

    Really nicely put together Donncha. That’s a really great rusty colour on the fence.

    a really nice one!
    but I’m curious too: was flash in use, or it wasn’t?

    Alex & Jedrzej – no, all natural light. I was really lucky that day that the sun was shining from behind me and to my right. I got about a good half dozen shots off that were all keepers. 🙂

    Pete – I’ll email you. I just need to figure out a few things first!

    Donncha, just ordered a print of this gorgeous picture from RedBubble. Special memories – Conor Pass is where my husband proposed to me. Going to hang this alongside a picture we had taken on the day of our engagement at the Pass. Thanks. Keep up the great work.
