Mist on Lough Cullin


Here is your Watery Wednesday image.

The above image was taken a good while ago when the Viewpoints team, Peter Cox, Carsten Krieger and myself get together for a few days. This time we were in Co Mayo. After a really early start to the day to catch sunrise, we decided that breakfast was in order. However, never one to miss a photo, we spotted this view above. Breakfast will just have to wait a bit longer today.

The fun we had trying to get into position. We had to walk through some bog land and we sank up to our knees. We also could not find solid ground to put the camera and tripods down. We were wet and the smell. Who cares a quick drive back to the B&B, shower and breakfast. Nice.

  1. Kind of lonely in a beautiful sort of way. Misty and serene, too.

  2. A lovely peaceful image - and good timing with the mist. Thanks for the funny mental image of three men-in-a-bog-with-cameras-and-tripods, too!

  8. Neil, this is so beautiful with the gentle mist and lovely reflection. The empty boat makes it very peaceful as well.

  12. What we won't do for a photo opportunity. getting together for photo shoots is most enjoyable. We learn from each other as we set up our shots. fun to see the differing compositions as well.
