Achill time

31st July 2012
I am very late posting this evening, and indeed was very late taking todays photograph. I was on Achill for a book launch. Mary J Murphy was launching her book "Achill's Eva O Flaherty Forgotten Island Heroine" Mary had used one of my images for the front cover. I had hoped to get some pictures on Achill, and as we rushed to get to the venue on time (the launch was at 8.45pm) I decided I did not really have time before hand to take many pictures, but felt sure that with sunset at9.45 pm I might get a few shots afterwards. Patricia of course told me not too rush as the launch would be on "Achill Time" but not wanting to be late I kept rushing and got to the venue just on time. The launch started an hour later and it was after 11pm when we left!. The sun was long gone but we went up to Keem bay anyway and it was lovely in the dark. I decided to try to make a picture anyway, and its amazing what modern digital cameras are capable of. This shot almost looks like daylight. the camera settings were 30seconds @f5.6 and iso800! It won't win any prizes, but I still think its amazing as I could not see this with my eyes.
