Light Spectacle in the Galtee Mountains

I was driving home from work last Friday, heading north on the R513, I couldn’t help but notice that the sun was unusually bright that afternoon. I don’t know why – call it anticipation – I decided to take a right just before Ballylanders and drove towards the Limerick – Tipperary border. I stopped at the side of the road, grabbed the D810 with the 24-70mm f/2.8g and took a series of handheld shots. It didn’t take more than 10 minutes. Then I headed home.

Went to the same spot a couple of days later, sunny conditions, roughly the same time, and got nothing. Just goes to show, that occasionally nature creates something unique, and that in this instance, being at the right place at the right time got me the pictures I was after.
