The Beaver Moon | Light Over The Town

Hi at The CRAIC club. I’m starting with photography and got to try to capture the Moon in it’s full-size last Saturday over the Spanish Arch and river Corrib. Not easy, and as I’ve learned nearly impossible to catch the pic of the Moon in the night sky with all its beauty while maintaining its location featuring the city at night down on the ground. There is too much light reflected from the Moon thrown on the earth that the street lighting of the city is not noticeable when combined into one shot. Anyway, I have submitted a picture taken from the Wolfe Tone Bridge where the river Corrib meets Claddagh to my […]

( Eir, or as we still remember it Eircom) I have several blogs which took a major nose dive because of this “little” problem. Not being able to upload regularly and less interaction with fellow bloggers, really brings down the popularity of a blog. My work as a […]
