Moon clouds

Still the super moon with us tonight, a light covering of cloud makes it way in front of the moon. Liked the look of this and on with the coat and hat and out I went. Grabbed a couple of shots while the foxes called for a mate close by. With a mist over the lough and the foxes calling, the night had an eerie feel to it.

Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend.

Mist on the water.

Got in from work the other evening and there was a mist dropping over the lough. With the land bathed in the light of the full moon and the twinkle of stars adding to the view I set up in the cool damp air. With the temperature around 2  Celsius (35/36 F) it was not a night for standing around, so getting a couple of shots it was coffee time in front of the fire.

The lough’s edge

With a few days of freezing weather and mist over the lough it has started to freeze over.

Here are a few photographs from the lough edge.

With a heavy frost build up on the plants and the waters freezing over it gives a whole new look and feeling to the place.

A Cold & Misty morning

So a misty morning greeted me with a heavy frost coating the world in fine jewels. Just me and the dog out for a morning stroll, with a 17-70 zoom on the camera we headed out. With the mist acting like a giant softbox the landscape soft on the eye, my old pal and I headed off down the road.

Yes this is a road, one of the many little L roads in Ireland.

A stop at one of the small loughs and it’s soft on the eye with the mist still down.

A beautiful morning in a grand part of Ireland where the pace is slow and the company great.

Thanks for dropping by.

Light dance

Had this shot in my head for a while and with dusk dropping in and the light reflecting on the lough I had to stop. When there is no breeze the loughs turn to mirrors for a short time every evening and you can just see it starting here on the water.

Street light

Due to early mornings being dark and the light is fading when going home the only time I can shoot is when its dusk or dawn. So have been out early some mornings while on my way to work. This way taken in a car park with the street lights illuminating the tree. With a long exposure and a light wind you can see movement in the branch’s and not the jogger that ran in front of the camera.
