Landscape photographers are a picky bunch. They won't settle for any old light - it has to be the right type of light. This normally means shooting during the golden hours - sunrise or sunset. I will admit, I'm not the best for getting up for the very early summer sunrise. However in the west of Ireland, we are faced with another particular dilemma - the weather ... or more specifically the bad weather. Did I say bad? - I do of course mean wet.
A tree is a tree, is a tree? Well yes ... and no. You see, it all depends on the light. I've spoken on a few occasions before about the unique light in the west of Ireland. The light we have here comes in two flavours - bad light and good light. Some argue that there is no bad light, just undiscovered light, but that's another blog entry.
