Photographer's Note

I'm thinking this is going to appeal to a very limited audience, but hey, I like it. :)

Taken from a jaunting cart on the top of the Gap of Dunloe, looking out across walkers and Serpent Lake. A mostly miserable day for weather, with a cold rain and mist that seemed to never really end. Here, I could sit and watch clouds of water blow across the valley. My hand shielding the lens from water spots.

Anyway, the reason I did the shot this way. I've been looking at pinhole camera shots. Was really getting into a set from Ta Prohm temple in Cambodia. And this shot was already starkly contrasted and grainy due to the drops and fog in the air. Reminded me a little of the pinhole style, so I decided to carry it out to some sort of conclusion by pointing my PP that way.

I hope it came out as old fashioned as I'd intended.
