Rough Weather ahead at Allihies

Rough Weather ahead at Allihies

Allihies in West Cork is a beautiful beach surrounded by beautiful scenery but on this day in February clouds hung over our heads, the sun broke through momentarily but the seas still lashed at the coast and I almost got drenched while shooting on the pier there.

Love this shot though, well worth braving the fierce cold wind!

Aperture ƒ/5.6
Camera Canon EOS 20D
Focal length 10mm
ISO 100
Shutter speed 1/80s

    I really like the colours of the sea in this one. And while I was watching the sea it felt like the ground is moving at the bottom of the picture. Great shoot!

    there is s real sense of urgency and movement in the shot, the sky is amazing and the ground looks as if it’s moving.

    I’m a little late to the party (came across this via the canon 10-22 tag), but had to say “WOW”! Awesome shot. Loving the lines of the rock (and a bit in the clouds too) drawing you in. Lovely stuff!
