Four minutes

27th July 2011
Today’s picture is of the same location as yesterdays, but I am sure you will agree is a completely different picture. This was taken at 11.45pm over an hour after sunset. With the camera on a tripod the shutter was open for four minutes and I used my coat to cover the lens every time the lighthouse light came on so as to avoid that light getting too bright in the picture. The lights in the distance are Galway City,. In planning the picture earlier in the day I had imagined that the light from the lighthouse would be like a big spotlight and would shine across the bay, but in fact its just like a big round energy saving bulb.
