Sunset over the Nuns Strand in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry, Ireland. The wind was so hard that it was difficult to stand up straight let alone keep the camera steady on the tripod. The spray from the sea was coming up over the cliff and hitting the lens., but I still liked the shot. Oh, and it was absolutely freezing cold. The wind cut straight through me.

    gorgeous shot, Tony!!! Hard won it surely was, from your description of the conditions, but how worth it!!!! The rocks off to the side almost look like human shapes emerging from the depths!!! WHAT a MOOD in this one!!!!!

  • Thanks Lois! I had to set the timer and hold the tripot down with both hands while I waited. If anyone had seen me they would have thought me a fool for standing on the edge of a cliff in that weather, but hey, the wind was in the right direction to stop me falling off. :) Tony.

    So apart from the howling gale, the drenching spray and the freezing cold it was OK then? A super shot with great post production work to enhance it. Excellent mate. Peter

  • If I didn’t have to get back home for dinner I probably would have gone for a quick dip! Thanks Peter! :) Tony.

    Very nice.
    Looks like the ocean is double exposing with the sky ?!

  • Hi Sarah, very difficult to get the water crisp with the sun so low, but it kinda worked. as wide an aperture as I could manage focusing on the water. Thanks for the comment :) Tony.
