It has been a while since I have written a blog post or had time to update my website and social media accounts. Those of you who follow me on social media would be aware I have had to use my spare time elsewhere due to my wife having an accident back in July. Thankfully she is healing well and is on the mend.
I did manage to get a week away in Donegal in September for photography. I decided to try and visit parts of Donegal that I have never have before. My first stop for a couple of days was the Poisoned Glen which lies at the foot of Mount Errigal, the tallest peak of the Derryveagh mountain range, in Dunlewey. I remember many years ago seeing a photo of the old church ruins which lies in the picturesque valley in Dunlewey and always wanted to pay a visit. I also wanted to visit the dam at the Dunlewey lough to photography the leaning over trees looking towards Mount Errigal.
Unfortunately the weather for the couple of days I was there was not great although I did manage a couple of images that turned out not too bad. I tried for a couple of evenings to capture a good sunset of the Bad Eddie old boat wreck beached on Magherclogher Beach, Bunbeg. On the last evening in Bunbeg I was treated to an amazing sunset that lasted for about 10 minutes and that produced some spectacular colours.
My next stop was the village of Fanad for 4 days as I really wanted to try and capture a decent sunset of the Fanad Lighthouse. After photographing the lighthouse for a couple of days and not really getting decent light or colour in the sky and thinking my images will end up black and white!! On the last evening I managed to capture some lovely colours with Mavic 2 drone. I also had time for a couple of long exposures which I was really happy with.
Donegal never disappoints and I look forward to another visit we have planned over the Christmas holidays, you never know there may be evening snow on Errigal!!
