“An elemental trinity: source, sustenance, space.”

A landscape photo in Galway of the beautiful Derryclare Lough Connemara. It is a lake that has been much photographed by other photographers and I think that is why I never photographed before. The lake sits in a wonderful setting. The Twelve Bens mountain range also known as the Telve Pins form a beautiful backdrop. The trees on the small island lean over from years of wind. The light was quite special. The clouds moved quickly but there was little wind at ground level. I took the opportunity to capture a long exposure knowing the clouds would appear quite fluid and dreamlike, while the reeds stood relatively still.
