Gave itself up !

16th February 2011
Landscape photographers work very hard to get their pictures. Scouting for locations, getting to the right place at just the right time, usually very early in the morning or late in the evening, often in the freezing cold. Trying to feed a blog on a daily basis has certainly challenged this photographer, and by and large I have been lucky. I was thinking about that today and I recalled the famous quote of Arnold Palmer who said “ the harder I practice the luckier I get”.
Well today’s picture just gave itself up ! I had spent the morning and early afternoon photographing the children in the local playschool here in Kiltimagh as I put the camera gear back into the car I looked up at the church, with the sun lighting it and the blue sky behind I thought it looked more like Italy then Mayo, but what I really liked was the hard lines of the church , counterbalanced by the soft swirl of the cloud. Gosh I’m going all arty now !!

For the record I still went out this evening to see the sunset and got a couple of nice pictures but I’ll save those for when my luck runs out !!
