Taken in Tollymore forest Park this weekend.
Foleys Bridge crosses the Shimna River in Tollymore forest Park.
The bridge was named after a young girl called Harriet Foley
In 1955 Tollymore forest park became the first state forest in Northern Ireland and was called a Forest Park. Situated at the foot of the Mourne Mountains it offers spectacular views of the mountains, and the coast at Newcastle while within the park there are numerous walks through mature woodland.
Thanks for looking :)

wonderful effect of the flowing water and rich colours. I love especially that golden part under the bridge.
A lot of to look at and get inspired. Only the fairy is missing.

Hi Gary. Like a dream of long ago, before Industrialization, when people traveled on foot and saw nature close and personal. Beautiful light, colours, PoV. The 2sec exposure has given you a captivating foreground. Bravo. Klaudio.

This is an outstanding long exposure. The long exposure creates a great sense of motion with the water. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF. Your composition is fine using the stream to lead the eye into the shot. The rocks in the foreground gives us a nice point of interest in the foreground of the shot.

Whatever the reason is, there's a beauty within the reflection of green coming from the foliage. The long exposure really works well here polishing the river as it accentuates the overall picture.

love the wonderful colours reflecting in the water, and the swirl of water coming around the rock in the foreground.

Wow, an absolutely stunning work of art here. The colors, the details, the perspective, the light management, the swirling waters - everything is perfect. Exceptional work and TFS. Gerald

Amazing photo! Colours are magical and perfect! Did you take this photo from the river?
douglascraig (260) 2008-05-09 13:05
I really like this. Wonderful colour and clarity. Sharp from front to back. Love the frame filling composition, and you seem to have stood in the middle of the river to get it! Been meaning to try this area myself for ages so this is the inspiration I need.
All the best,

That picture is so gorgeous it's amazing.
I love the composition, the colors, the perfect lighting, the atmosphere...
A masterpiece, and yet another rock in the foreground :D

nice capture of the water motion.

I chanced upon this effort of yours, I think it is excellent. I have taken photos in such situations and know that getting the exposure right is quite challenging.
I suppose it may be the ND grad effect, very well done.
