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.
