Fleeting Moments

10th March 2011
I Started this morning with a two hour one to one class with Brian. Brian has been taking photographs for a little while and has done alot of experimenting with his camera. Today we went through my method for exposing the camera for Landscape pictures using the camera’s histogram and so taking the guesswork out of perfect exposures ! We also did a little photoshop. This evening I was in Mulranny for an evening class and as usual went a little early to get a picture for tonight’s blog. I arrived twenty minutes before the class and went out the coast road a little. It was pouring rain as I arrived but the sun was attempting to break through. Suddenly the skies began to clear and as the sun set behind me it lit up the shower clouds around Croagh Patrick across the bay. I had to work really fast to get the pictures taking the time to put up a tripod and “do things properly” I think it paid off! As is often the case in the West of Ireland these amazing scenes appear when you least expect them and only for fleeting moments and I always feel so privileged when I witness them. For the record I had to rush to the class getting there with 1 minute to spare!!
