River Slaney, Altamont Gardens 1
Altamont Gardens River Slaney
“Monochrome, a quiet riot.”
– SJ Mannion
A fine art photo of the River Slaney beside Altamont Gardens in County Carlow. It’s a wonderful peaceful setting and I was struck by the metallic sheen like affect of the water as it flowed over the rocks and the triangular form of the white water afterward. I broke down the scene into simple forms by processing it as a black and white image and it helps focus on those elements which are the main point of focus.
“Altamont Gardens, River Slaney” was a finalist in the 2010 FEP European Fine Art Photograph of the Year Award.
