What NO Tripod!

18th July 2013
I am in Co Clare for a couple of days. Patricia and I drove down last night arriving in Kinvarra about an hour after sunset and the castle looked pretty good. So I stopped (again) for a picture. As I opened the boot I was overcome with dread which was confirmed after a quick search.... I had forgotten to pack my tripod! My mood blackened NO TRIPOD!!!!
Determined not to be beaten, I took out the camera anyway. My fastest lens is a 50mm1.4 .
I put the iso up to 2500 and set the lens to 1.8 this gavel a shutter speed of 1/30 second , just fast enough to handhold. I took nine pictures which were stitched together to make this image.
We got yo bed somete after midnight, but I was awake half the might wondering what to do about the tripod (sad isn't it!!!!!). I had decided I would just have to make the five hour round trip home to get it , but this afternoon I met fellow photographer Margaret who offered me her tripod ( the same model as mine even!) so I am happy again!! I hope I get to use it now!!!
