Silver Strand, Co. Mayo

Silver Strand, Co. Mayo
Silver Strand is one of Mayo's hidden gems. Located at the end of a several mile cul-de-sac, it nestles at the base of Mweelrea Mountain, Connaught's highest peak. This image was made during the filming of Dynamic Range episode 2. The tide was coming in and at this point my boots had already filled with water a few times. Already having wet feet meant I may as well stay put and wait for the perfect wave to capture the essence of the scene. The shutter speed here was just half a second and is just enough to show the flow of the water as it wraps around the foreground rock.
