Perfect finish

15th November 2014
On Thursday evening I was on Achill Island, with Don who had come for some one to one tuition. We sat through some really wild weather waiting for it to clear in the hopes of getting a sunset. Sunset came and went but we did not see it and eventually we decided we should call it a night, and started the drive home. But noticing a gap developing in the cloud I pointed out the potential to Don, explaining through one of my mantras "its not the amount of light , but the quality of light that matters." It was really quite dark, the sun had set 30 minutes earlier, but the hole in the clouds was creating this magical scene, so we set up the tripods yet again.This picture was shot at 800iso, f9 and 1/3 of a second. It was quite windy so even with a tripod a longer shutter speed may not have worked because of camera movement , also it was still raining and keeping the water of the front of the lens meant we had to work faster. it was though, the perfect finish to our day!
