It was a little quiet around here last week as I attended the Focus-on-Imaging show in the Birmingham NEC. It was a great show and I had a chance to catch up with lots of great people. And of course that’s not to mention all the fantastic photography toys on show… lets just say my wish list has gotten even longer!
If you follow me on Facebook or Google+ you’ll know I was out and about on the Wicklow Mountains the Saturday before I left for the Show. I was out exploring new locations around Sally’s Gap and along the Old Military Road. I also took a hike up Tonelagee Mountain. Indeed near the summit I decided it was a perfect location to stop for some breakfast 🙂
I was heading back from the hike and driving along Old Military Road when I noticed this scene with light shafts breaking through the heavy cloud that had formed shortly after sunrise. I stopped at a section of Cloghoge Brook that was close to the road to see if I could create a pleasing composition. The light was constantly changing as the clouds moved overhead, so once I had a composition I was happy with it was really a matter of patience to wait for the light to do it’s thing.
