An Irish Sunset

When Mrs R [who is in this photo], and I got married, we couldn’t go away on a honeymoon as you do, because we couldn’t get Warren looked after. But we managed in the end and went over to Ireland for about 9 days, which was great.

The cottage, over on the Renvyle Peninsular in Galway, was lovely and had a view across the bay to die for. Within hours of arriving, Mrs R was delighted to spot some dolphins swimming past along the coastline.

We became regular tourists for a week, as I showed her some of the places I know from previous trips, and, of course, my Canon EOS 10D bodies [now replaced!], were used a lot! Having two cameras proved as invaluable then as other times, as I didn’t have to swap lenses. Keeping several spare, charged batteries and sd cards is also vital when out and about away from home: you don’t want to run out of either!

Taking an evening stroll on the beach was superb. There was hardly ever anyone else about to spoil any photo opportunities, and I made the most of it.

Mrs R wanted me to get a nice sunset picture for her, but the view behind me was stunning: to me it was vastly better and I told her so. The expanse of empty beach with a few large rocks to balance and complement the mountains in the distance combined with the special light of the Atlantic coast made for a really ethereal image.

Sunsets create a special sort of light, which varies enormously depending where you are in the world, and I learned a long time ago… Always have a look behind you!
