This image was made after the sunset pictures were made that you’ve seen in the last two blog posts.  The “show” was over so to speak, when I looked across the lake and spotted the lone tree in the rolling fog.  At about the same time, Peter Cox (our guide and local Irish photographer) came running excitedly to point out the same scene.  As much fun as the sunset pictures were to make, this will be the one that I’ll remember most.  Solitude.

    Amazing JB. You can feel the emptiness and solitude, hear the silence and smell the fresh air….

    Excellent scene and the b/w treatment really makes it pop.

    Funny how a week or so can change a venue from an “OK” location to “spectacular” !!! Nice work, JB.

    Wow! Amazing as is! As you mention, that lone tree pulls you into the image. Try a crop isolating the lone tree, island (point) and fog within that segment as well. Absolutely stunning work and visions JB!

    JB, this makes a wicked hard core pano if you crop above the lower cloud layer on the right and below the upper cloud layer running across the scene.

    WOW! what an amazing image as is, and as a pano.

    Yes, a beautiful scene. A vignette of the many wonderful sights we saw. This one is a bit “more special” than the rest for sure. Glad you were there to capture this moment.
