I’d big plans this weekend. Initially it looked like a trip to Donegal was on the cards and that meant some good opportunity to shoot coastal scenery. Then when baba got sick, it looked like a weekend in the house and a chance to shoot local scenery…
Then the weather happened. Maybe I’m a fair weather photographer, but I don’t do cold or rain. I especially don’t do cold and rain. So I stayed home and lit the fire instead.
(1/13, f/5, focal length – 44mm, ISO – 400, 01/12/07 21:43)
The challenge here was to get the shot before the lens started to heat up. I’ve no idea what the tolerance on these things are and I wasn’t about to find out.
The shot hasn’t been cropped, but has had some ‘burning’ (I know, I know) performed to intensify the coals and glow under the log.
For those of you who’re interested. I’m hoping to do get out on a Christmas in Belfast jaunt sometime after the 14th. Let me know if you’re up for it.
