Barnesmore Gap


This image was taken back in May on my trip to Donegal with Navan Camera Club. After a long drive up to Donegal with wonderful weather my camera finger was getting trigger happy and I had to find a location. I was driving along the main road out of Donegal town (N15) towards Letterkenny when I spotted a river bed along the road. I stopped the car and got out to explore this location and what a find. This place is called the Barnesmore Gap as the road cut's through the mountains which I might show you later as I have another image from here looking the other way. After my first couple of shoots I moved along the river bed to this location in the image above.  I like the postion of the rocks in the foreground and the 'V' shape made by the mountains with the clouds in the middle. For you tech's out there it was taken with my Canon 5D with the 24-70 F2,8 lens set to 24mm. A couple of Lee ND grads were used to keep the highlights in the sky.
