Capturing the moment

20th September 2010
True to their word Mallory and Bruce arrived at the gallery at 6.30 am to go and photograph the sunrise. We went to old head and spent over two hours on the beach, no sign of a sunrise and plenty of rain. Cameras , camera bags and photographers all took a soaking but the enthusiasm never waned. When the sun tried to appear from behind the clouds it did so for only a few moments but that moment was enough for Mallory to make this great picture.

The sun disappeared again and we said we would go and photograph some waterfalls as they are great with no sun. as soon as Mallory had her camera on the tripod the sun came out and ruined the planned slow shutter pictures! We then did a panoramic picture of Croagh Patrick but the sun was a bit high . We then returned to the studio to process the pictures. So after two whole days it all came down to that fleeting moment on Old head beach, but you know, thats what photography is all about, capturing the moment !
