Now that the clocks have gone forward, we have an extra hour of light every evening. It makes capturing a landscape scene or a lovely Irish sunset a little bit easier - sometimes. The weather here in the west of Ireland has also improved drastically and there's a nice summery feel these days. We should all make the most of it because as you know, it will be short-lived.
Getting out to photograph the sunrise or sunset over one of the many lakes in the West of Ireland is probably one of my favourite pastimes. There are some stunning skies here on a summers evening or indeed at any time of year, if only people would take the time to go out and enjoy them.
This photograph was taken at Beltra Lake, Glenisland, Ireland on a July evening.
Howto: Long exposure photography is when the cameras sensor is exposed to light for longer than usual. The exposure can range from a few seconds to many minutes. Traditionally this technique was used for taking photos at night.
