Fine Art Print: Bundorragha River Flow




Bundoragha River, black and white photography, Donal Kelly

Dark stones jut out of the Bundorragha river on the road from Leenane to Doolough and Louisburgh.

It’s May but cool and wet. I wander the river bank looking for something that looks right for the flow against the rock. I know that the quarter second exposure tends to let water gush but not completely lose its shape, and it lets me use a depth of field that covers the river. Or do I think at all, and just stare and snap?

Exposure: 1/4 second at f8, no filters, tripod.
