The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Gap of Dunloe in Co Kerry in February 2007. I was up there recently and it couldn’t have been more different. A storm blew down the valley making life miserable for anyone walking the roads or trying to take photos of this scenic area.

A Storm in the Gap of Dunloe

A Storm in the Gap of Dunloe

Heavy rain and strong gusts of wind were the order of the day in the Gap of Dunloe when Blarney Photography Club visited last month. Made for atmospheric photos if you could keep your camera dry!

The sunrise flows

The sunrise flows over the hill

Because of the disc’s enormous magical field, at sunrise, the morning light flows over like thick golden syrup, accumulating in valleys and then slowly crawling over the top of an hillside. The same can be said about the night, which spreads like plum jam.

Sunset on the road

Sunset on the road

A single exposure at 1/30 of a second because the road, even if it is in rural Ireland on the Dingle Peninsula. Cars drove past at most every 5-6 minutes.

Lightroom’s new masking tools were really helpful working on this image.
