Still working away with the images from Ireland, Wicklow, Wexford and Dublin. Here’s one up in the snowy wicklow mountains, which I’m glad to had the chance to capture, a place which is one of my favourites to hike.
This image was taken at the Lower Lough Bray in the Wicklow Mountains, in the late afternoon (using a ND8 filter at ISO 50, 22mm f/18 0.6s). The idea here was to flatten the water as much as I could without any need for photoshop later. There was a slight wind closer in which is seen on the water, this add another contrast within the image – the still and wildness.
It was certainly icy and cold, I managed to slip into the water not just once but twice, each foot! But a change of socks were at hand, which I’m grateful for!
