Another from last night.
Stitched handheld pano. Clouds not stitched very well. Vibrance and saturation reduced to -10 approx .
Looks very harsh ... need to reprocess when I get a chance.
Dramatic lighting. Happened very quickly and disappeared just as fast.
Stepaside, hand held and high iso. No time to get a tripod.
I have made an attempt to process images taken on Saturday night last, just beyond the Sally Gap. I really do not know how best to process the clouds. Hard to avoid weird colours... Lots to learn.
6 images stacked. Each 15 secs f2.2 ISO 6400 (eq mount). 24 mm on Sony A7R3.
Night sky over Dublin Wicklow Mts.
Single image, no stacking.
Promising forecast, no moon, but too many clouds,
I should have also said it was a 30 Sec exposure on an eq.mount.

'Ducks In A Row'
A recent term .... check out this link www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-duc5.htm
More importantly, it is nice to find a quiet corner where nature is at it's best and summer evenings allow us enjoy the moment.
The ducks have figured out that by standing on the weir the food comes to them.
The 'Eyes Have It '.
Lovely afternoon in Altmont. Just chill out time ...
Milky Way 'Lough Tay'
First effort at a Milky Way. So much to learn.
Basically needed to increase the exposure settings for both sky and foreground. I think a 42 MB camera is a disadvantage, as shorter exposures needed to avoid star trails...
This is a 24 mm on full frame. Needed a 14 mm to be able to get more of the Milky Way and reduce impact of light pollution closer to the skyline. Waited 3 months to get a new moon and clear skies. Do not trust the shutter time on the meta data, This is a 6 shot stack, with the (poorly exposed) foreground added as a separate layer.
Amazing clouds to-night. A pity the setting sun did not emerge to light up the scene.
Early Morning San Gimignano. No Tourists (but no sunrise either).
Tourists begin to leave San Gimignano as the sun begins to set.

The Wicklow Gap (t23056)
Of Times Gone By.
The Wicklow Gap (t23035)
This is a small crop from a very large pano. The full image is 25,000 x 6000 pixels. I used a 70-200 mm lens in an attempt to compress the space and try to get the bluebells appear closer to each other. On the large full size pano, the bluebells are too small to notice, but would look great on a print that was 20 feet long and 6 foot tall. The leaves are still only starting to appear on the trees, so the woodland background has more tree trunks than green foliage.
It started out such a wonderful day. ...….. Alas, the clouds moved in by the time I got to my destination. (Ref 19736)
This year's image for my Christmas Card.
Usually I try to use a travel shot. This year I travelled as far as the hall table to capture an image of the crib. Seasons wishes to all.
