As you may have noticed from previous blogs I spend a lot of time around Wicklow driving the car or motorbike. While the photographs here are not the best technically and hopefully on another day it would be clearer I thought it was interesting to get an overall shot of the area I spend so much time in 🙂
This shot is of Vartry Reservoir and it is located near the village of Roundwood. When I saw it first I thought it was the Blessington lakes but checking details on google maps tonight and I am happy it is the reservoir.
I have the ISO at 400 as I wanted a relatively faster shutter speed to reduce shake/vibration from the flight. The setting of f11 was to attempt to get sharpness across the landscape but shooting through the window I think negates some of that.
Settings : ISO 400, 55m, f11, 1/160sec.
These are Lough Bray Upper and Lough Bray lower. Until I checked Google maps I thought there was only one Lough Bray so you learn something new every day !
Again I had the ISO at 400 to allow for the shutter speed, vibration etc.
Actually last year I went up to Lough Bray on the motorbike to take a shot of Lough Bray from the lakeside. Checking the dates it was in May as well. Tricky bit it was a 15 minute walk across fields to get to it. I used a tripod to ensure a clear shot so this allowed the shutter speed to be slow.
Settings : ISO 100, 18mm, f22, 1/5 sec
