Photographer's Note

Forbidden Cove: There is a steep climb down to this cove which gives a great perspective to Fanad lighthouse situated in County Donegal. This was captured 40 minutes after sunset with full illumination of the bulb adding to the mood. My plan was to capture some drama in the waves rather than the usual motion blur seen in low light seascapes. To achieve this I used a high ISO1000 setting and diffused flash which froze the waves. I timed the shot to include the foreground stones which was important. I used Shadows and Highlights in Photoshop to balance the exposure.
