Flat Calm

11th August 2012
Another lovely day in mayo but once again i did not get out to get any pictures.
This picture was taken on Achill Island last Saturday evening. I was on achill to attend the opening of an Exhibition of photographs of Achill Yawls, by my friend Theresa Cawley, its well worth a look , if you happen to be near (Alices Hotel at achill Sound). I had arrived early for the schedualed Yawl racing but it was cancelled due to high wind. So I decided to make a quick trip to Cloughmore to photograph the rough seas. As you can see from the photograph however the sea on the West of the Isalnd was flat calm! You would not know from the sea in the photograph, but it was far to windy to use a tripod, and it was very difficult to stand still with the camera! usually the wind comes from the West and Cloughmore is a great place for high and crashing waves.
