Novena

16th August 2014
Late again this evening ! I am not long in from the Novena in Knock, where I was photographing the event. The ceremony normally finishes with a candle light procession, and in anticipation of the procession, I left the Basilica to establish the correct camera settings . So i took this picture, at iso2000, 1/15th second and f2.8 on the fuji, its amazing just how slow you can go with this camera and still get fairly sharp pictures. It was spitting rain at the time . I had taken a few pictures and established the correct settings when I suddenly realised that nobody was coming out for the procession! It had been cancelled due to the rain, so I had to quickly make my way back to the basilica to photograph the closing ceremonies.
For those of you not familiar with knock, the Church at the front of the image is the Old Parish Church, The Basilica is the more modern building in the distance.
