Found this shot during a nice bright spring walk along Lissadell Beach from John’s Port side. It is just a small drain spout emptying onto the beach but looks like venetian glass when frozen with such a high shutter speed. This kept my aperture pretty much wide open with a resulting lack of sharpness in the closer parts of the water. I will take it again and try for a better compromise. Using a Sony A700 in place of the heavier and less walk friendly A900 made focus a bit harder to check before taking the picture.
On another note the erection by the landowner of offensively large keep out notices adjacent to the right of way is an unfortunate degradation of this beautiful area, I will post a few photos of these in a later post so you can see what I mean. I am sure he is within his rights and all that but why?
