6th June 2012

Baltray Beach, County Louth.

I have a zillion photos taken of this shipwreck since I first visited the location at the end of June last year.   I never tire of heading out here as the light and the tides are different each time.

20th August 2011
A few of us met up at the indecent hour of 4:30 am to get to the wreck before sunrise.  Once parked at the entrance to Termonfechin beach, its a half hour "trek to the wreck" from there .   We were rewarded for our efforts with beautiful red skies.   Home then for a big breakfast before we set off again for more photos.

13th July 2011
Baltray is on the northern shore of the River Boyne estuary in County Louth. It is very peaceful here in the evenings.  The sky was clear and the moon was full, and there was a gentle breeze coming off the river.

I used 2 Cokin Neutral Density graduated filters here, plus a Tiffen 0.9 Neutral Density filter (screw -on) to slow down the shutter speed, and "smooth out" the ocean.  In the end, the ocean is so far away that any silkiness is unnoticed in the shot.  However the long exposure captured the movement in the clouds nicely. The dying rays of the evening sun were hitting the rusty wreck as I took the shot
