As the weather forecast was good when we got here, we had an early supper, and headed to the Giants Causeway – just in time for a massive rainstorm. We sat it out for half an hour and it cleared just as quickly, leaving this fantastic sky.
Near Cleggan, in Connemara, Ireland, this beautiful beach takes its name from an ancient anchor buried in the sand… It is believed to be from the 1000 ton 3 mast barque ‘Verity’, from Nova Scotia, that was wrecked in a storm in 1890.
My wife has suggested more than once that I have as many camera bags as she has handbags. I can honestly say this not true, although my collection has grown today with the addition of a beautiful Billingham bag. There is of course always an excellent reason for each new bag – today’s purchase is so I can (theoretically) travel light when we head off on holiday next. Just saying…
Rather windy tonight here in Cornwall so didn’t venture out to take photos, but then this awesome sunset appeared… A grab shot with my trusty Sony camera captured it perfectly.
So, a quick long exposure sunset shot, down by the harbour wall in Porthleven. An opportunity to try out my ‘lightweight’ kit of Sony A6300 and 16-70mm lens. Seems pretty decent.
