Inch Abbey, Downpatrick
The impressive ruins of Inch Abbey near to where St Patrick himself is said to be buried. It is set in a beautiful location beside the River Quoile, with distant views towards de Courcy's Cathedral town of Downpatrick. I captured this one foggy morning as the sun was rising.

This is pure magic, with that low angle lighting and the mist on the ground. You handled the extreme contrast of the scene very well and created a very beautiful shot. Excellent work!
dkeus31 (27735) 2008-12-07 21:29
a great colored shot!
despite of the backlight you have details everywhere, thanks the fog filter :)

"enchanted" pretty much describes the photo, the luminous light is pure magic, and I like a lot how you have created a composition where it feels as if this light is slowly pouring into the scene from the upper right corner. the road works very well as a lead-in line, but I particularly like the slight purple cast in the sky, for me this unusal colour only adds magic to the moment. superb work, my compliments.

Hi Stephen, very moody morning picture. I like the atmosphere and crystal sharpness. Could you type to your notes if used HDR, because I think it is very important to know, please?
chawax (20758) 2008-12-09 11:38
Very nice shot, again with very pleasant colours and a great atmosphere. The composition is well done, with the footpath driving us to the abbey ruins.

J'aime beaucoup les photos dans la brume et celle-ci est merveilleuse. L'éclairage est superbe et le sentier nous amène directement aux ruines. Les couleurs sont fantastiques.
Bravo!... et bonne soirée,

Fog effect and rising sun give a fabulous atmosphere in this landscape, the against the light ruins abbey and trees give a good composition in that enchanted atmosphere.
Very well done.
