View of Downhill Strand from Mussenden Temple, Northern Ireland

  1. This is on the North coast near Portrush - that's Donegal in the distance across the strand. Captured in RAW and PP in NX, I'll admit to dropping a colour control point on the sky - we need all the saturation we can get in Northern Ireland !

    Post more of our coasline soon. :smile:

  5. Thanks Sparkey, if it would just stop raining here !

    Thanks Gale, it was an easy shot - I just had to turn up and stand in the right place !

    Thanks Dr Nabil
  6. Beautiful is certainly the operative word!! love this shot and the control point in the sky works for me as well.

  8. Beautiful shot Ian. How cold ios that water? :smile:
  9. Thanks Bohdan. The more I work with Capture NX the better I like it.

    Cheers. I think more than anything it's the glass that counts. I've seen posts, possibly on dpreview, suggesting the 17-55mm is not a great landscape lens. This has not been my experience with it.

    That water is always cold so that's as close as I get - you'd need a wet suit in there :) 
  10. Wonderful image Ian, for me it is the outstanding light that enhances it so well.
  11. Thanks Frits. I have this shot as my screen background on a 24" Dell display and the 3d effect of that strand going into the distance is amazing and as you say it's all about the light. I was lucky.

    Great shot Ian. I hope to visit the North sometime and get some shots that nice. You have some incredible shots on your web site. I've been do Dublin and south but unfortunately before I got into photography.

    Take care,

  14. Thanks for your comment Jeff.

    Hi Chris - thanks for the kind comments on this image and the web site ! We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful country and being so small pretty much everything in the North is accessible within a few hours drive before we drop off the edge.
