Crookhaven by Moonlight
Starting with my update on the 2016 Winter Solstice yesterday, I'll be posting most days until early in 2018 with some of my favourite shots from the past year or so. Today's offering is Crookhaven by Moonlight. Its a panoramic stitch of three images I took on 1 November under a near full moon from Brow Head. This is the most southerly point on the Irish mainland overlooking the Crookhaven peninsula. The elevated lights in the background are from the air traffic control radar station on Mount Gabriel and those 0n the right are from the village of Baltimore - famed for being sacked by Barbary corsairs in 1631. Each image was exposed for nearly five minutes at f8 and ISO 400 at a focal length of 55mm using a tripod-mounted Canon 7D MarkII. It's available to purchase as an A4 or A3 print, framed print or download at www.johncoveney.ie/new-landscapes. Contact me for larger sizes.
