“Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.” ~ Amelia Earhart
I was delighted to have the opportunity to revisit the Copper Coast in Waterford a couple of weeks ago, doubly so because I had the chance to host my good friend Athena Carey. Things were not entirely plain sailing on this trip unfortunately, between weather and tides, but we still managed to have a great time with lots of time out shooting this absolutely stunning coastline.
I have quite a few images from this trip that I am excited to share with you, but today’s image is from my last trip to the Copper Coast, in October where I had the fun of hosting another good friend, Johan Peijnenburg. It was a non-stop 4 days of shooting, from sunrise to sunset and we had an absolute ball. This is the 3rd image I’ve released from that trip, the first being a sunrise from Ballyodwane Cove and the 2nd a sunset from Hook Head Lighthouse in Wexford.
Meet Burke’s Rock, or at least that is how its named on the Ordnance Survey Map. To me though it looks like a Beast of Burden and it’s just finished a tough night-shift. I can see him giving a tired nod to the security guard on his right as he leaves to head home. The trails created by the 2 minute long exposure are like the marks left as he drags his tired feet, with echos remaining of those that left before him. What do you see?
