Redbarn Beach Sunset

Redbarn Beach cw (640x426)Well after a week of R&R,and the batteries almost recharged, its almost time to get back to reality. I spent a few days down in Youghal, East Cork with the family. Whilst the weather was not exactly summer holiday material, we did manage to get a few hours sunshine in between the clouds and rain. Our hotel was right on the beach, so an after dinner stroll along the beach with the kids became a bit of a ritual. This particular night, there was some gorgeous colour with the sun set, and these wodden groynes realy caught my eye. I did do a mono version, but for once much perfered the original colour. You can check out the alternate version over on my FB page HERE if you like.  Now I didnt get to visit as many places as I had planned due to the weather, but I did manage to explore some really cool places which I will be sharing in due course. Its been a long while since I have done anything in colour, so I would love to hear your thoughts 🙂

    Gorgeous shot, Ed.

  2. Karen says:

    This is just beautiful! And I thought the same thing- the colors here really sing although I’m sure the mono version would be stunning as well.

  3. oglach says:

    I prefer mono photos myself, but sometimes they don’t do the scene or the photographer justice. Beautiful; thank you.

  4. Stunning photo! I really like to see the colors. Thanks.

    Truly beautiful…I love the blending of the blues and purples.

  6. beetleypete says:

    On this occasion, I am pleased to see it in colour.I doubt the effect of the different blues would have had the same impact, in B+W.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. Maureen says:

    thank you for this lovely image Ed. Live the color

  8. I think you have a talent there Ed!
    Black and white pics are moody and full of feeling and your colour ones just pick out the most amazing colours highlighting the ones I would least expect to see.
    Very impressive.

    They are both lovely, and evoke entirely different emotions. It is a beautiful capture all ’round.

    Great shot of an Irish sunset. You mention sunshine between clouds and rain – just as I remember Ireland in summer! But then you really appreciate the sun when it appears. Here we complain when it goes away – subtle difference in approach. But Ireland has something NZ hasn’t got – history and a wholly unique atmosphere.

  11. I love this! Sometimes it’s so hard to capture the true appearance of a sunset in a photo but I feel like you got the exposure right here and captured the moment. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you so much, I really appreciate the kind words, It was not something that I would normally shoot, but it just caught my eye, and the colour in the sky was amazing. Every once in a while I like to attempt something new. Glad you liked it 😃

  12. I live in Youghal, Ed. Where you there for the Queen of the Sea festival? The weather was shocking. I get some lovely photos while walking along the strand, all times of year. Love your photo, the sky is amazing.

    • Wow, no I was just down in the Quality for 3 nights last week. Weather was not great but I got a few shots on Wednesday in the town. Also got the Clocktower and Conans Well I was so annoted as I had a long list of stuff I wanted to see. So driving home on Friday morning I stopped off in Ardmore in the lashing rain and got soaked, but I got some nice shots 🙂
      It was my first time to Cork and the family loved it, so we will be coming back 🙂
      That little bakery on the main street does amazing bakewells 🙂

    Stunning image 🙂

  14. I love the composition – that little space between the piling on the right and the cloud is excellent!

  15. Donna says:

    Absolutely stunning – the colour version is a Must! It would make a great painting if you would give me persmission to use the image. 😉

  16. Nice! The color certainly worked great on this shot.

  17. Sue Vincent says:

    Beautiful, Ed 🙂

    Very st ospheric! Makes me want to kick my shoes off and feel the sand on the soles of my feet before I risk a paddle! Regards Thom.

    Just found this post in my slam folder. I love the photo, the colours are GORGEOUS, and it exudes such a sense of peace. Did you have a good trip? Weather has been awful here.

  20. Hello Ed,

    I’ve been out of the loop with my posts on WordPress for the last few months.
    I added a post this week to explain my change in content with my blog.

    Don’t know if this will be of interest to anyone who comes across my blog, but I don’t want to close the delete it at this point.

    I’ll check in when I can but I’m focusing on other priorities this year and into 2016.
    Look forward to sharing these changes as they happen.

    • Hey Aimee, so good to hear your back, I hopeall is well. I had a recent haitus myself and am just getting back into the swing of things.
      Regular blogging can take its toll on you and with the pre existing pressures of life that we all have dont make i any easier. All we can do is try our best.
      Its great to see you back, and I wish you all the best in your endevours 🙂

      • Thank you for the support.
        At the moment, I need to focus on getting more work.

        So my occasional blogging hat will be floating about for the time being.

        All the best to you as well! Stay in touch. ~A~
