Here is what I've titled ĎAncient Spirití.
Possibly the most technically challenging photo Iíve taken, certainly in a long time!
A 0.9 RF filter was used to hold back the sky while making sure there was some detail kept in the cairn tomb Co.Sligo, Ireland.
This was also one of the most spectacular sunsets Iíve ever witnessed, anywhere in the world! Shot back in October when the sun was setting right behind the cairn, this was a very slow burning sunset, where I basically sat in my car waiting to see if anything would happen. Slowly but surely the most perfect clouds for a spectacular sunset started creeping across the sky towards the Carrowmore tombs. As the sun started getting lower in the sky, the colours started to show themselves, gradually turning into the mega scene you see below.
A perfect image, no! Shooting at the end of October meant the grass & thistles in the foreground were all but dead, and unfortunately the building in the background is a horse stable, and with the angle I wanted to shoot at, I couldn't hide it behind the tomb.
Technical: Hasselblad Xpan, 30mm lens, Fuji Velvia, 0.9 RF ND Grad filter.
