Time for another photo from our trip to northern ireland and donegal back in july. This one was taken at a local beach on the Rosguill Peninsula in Donegal. Not so easy to find but worth the search :-) We were there at incomming tide and big waves were crashing upon the rocks as the sun set. Constantly wiping my filters I was able to snap some shots of the action.
The light was spectacular. A golden hue was laying over the whole place. The reddish rocks were glowing.
I used a lee 0.6 hard GND here to control the exposure of the sky.
Stormy evening at murder hole beach on the rosguill peninsula in Ireland. A lot of sea spray made it a hard time for camera and filters, but I got some decent shots that evening. Here I used a lee 0.6 soft and a lee 0.6 hard gnd to balance the sky against the sea, my typical combo. This made it possible to get this shot in one exposure.
I'm just going though the photos from Northern Ireland and Donegal again and I still have many photos to process. Here's another one from Boyeegther Beach/ Murder Hole on the Rosguill peninsula in Donegal.
It was a crazy evening, first it wasn't so easy to find this beach and then the clouds were hiding most of the sun. But an hour before sunset it started to get magical and I think I took nearly 100 photos that evening. Mostly to make sure I had some without water drops on my filters showing. There was a lot of spray and after the sun had set I had 3 Lee filter cloths completely wet from cleaning my filters. In the end I couldn't get them clean anymore and had to shoot without filters. When shooting at the coast you just can't have enough filter cloths with you ;-)
I used a lee 0.6 soft + 0.6 hard gnd here and also blended in parts of the sky from a darker exposure. Then my normal postprocessing.

I can't remember many single shoots from which I posted so many photos as from this evening at Murder Hole Beach on Rosguill Peninsula, Northern Ireland. The light that evening was awesome and I went from one composition to the next trying to make the most of those fantastic conditions. I still have more and while they don't look that different they show nicely how the evening progressed.
