Wild in Mulranny
03rd February 2011
It poured rain all day today, and blew a gale. I was teaching an evening class in mulranny this evening and got to Mulranny. The class started at 6.30 and I arrived at 5.15pm . It was already almost dark but i decided to try and photograph the stormy weather. It was extremly windy far to windy for a tripod, so i had to hand hold the camera. I used iso 800 and even with the 50mm lens wide open, ie at 1.4 I still only had a shutter speed of 25th second.In the wind it was very hard to hold the camera steady so I put the camera drive to rapid fire and shot off about eight photos in the hopes of getting one with no camera shake..... this is it!
