…photographs by an American living in Ireland

Autumn Equinox

But wait -- there was no full moon on the 23rd of September (which was the equinox). True, and well-observed. I actually took this photograph in full sun at mid-day. Shooting directly into the sunlight caused the silhouetting, which I increased somewhat in post. It didn't take a lot of processing -mostly I increased the contrast in the sky, and the result is quite satisfyingly dramatic. Day for night, Spring for Autumn. It's all about what it evokes.

  1. Day for night, I love it! I also love the way it just catches the water, just a little off-center.

  3. So I wasn’t entirely off when I said that this is what we see when we look out the window at lunchtime… 🙂

    Could you capture a similar picture with the moon. It would be interesting to see the pictures side by side. Very nice shot with the clouds to give some texture.

    This is beautiful. I love the muted blues and perception of peace you get in the atmosphere around the light of the water.
