I was out and about north of the Liffey today but with limited time for photography except for a quick visit to Howth Harbour during a sunny spell when I got this view of the fishing fleet tied up during the storm – and with the lighthouse in the background. You can check out a very different view of the lighthouse with the full Moon behind it that I got in Nov 2011 here on my Flickr site.
I took today’s shot with the Canon 70-200mm f4 lens at 78mm for 1/320th of a second, f11 and ISO200. It’s essentially straight out of camera, which was set on daylight white balance which nicely captured the cold wintry sunlight and the dark clouds – with lighthouse as the only warm looking feature. The shot would have been better without the car in front of the lighthouse – and I did try again after it moved but the light wasn’t as good – I guess I’ll have to clone it out if I ever want to do more with this shot!
