Donabate Storm




There is your SkyWatch Friday image.

I had only a couple of mins before the rain started as you can see from the clouds rolling in from the Irish Sea. Lambay Island is just visible on the horizon. The waves were starting to grow in intensity. It was a case of set up the tripod , take the photo and run like hell back to the car. I love this type of weather conditions as the time just before and after have the most interesting sky's. No clear blue sky's for me thank you. I have a big heavy duty plastic bag which I put over the camera while still on the tripod as there is no time to start packing the camera, lens and filters away form the elements.
