The Old Stone Bridge and Waterfall

I found this old stone bridge recently, having photographed the valley in which it sits I climbed down off the road, slipping most of the way on the steep incline that was boggy and wet.

Thankfully the ground was soft.

Camera protected from the speedy descent, I reached the river and set up my tripod to look back up at the bridge and the river waterfalling down to my level.

I made a long exposure to accentuate the water falling and flowing out through the foreground. You can see the iron content in the water giving a reddish colour, the river picks up iron as it passes through bogland soils.

Having been out since morning on a long photography tour in the west of Ireland, lighting wasn't ideal for the location but it was worth the journey and the climb back up.

To join me on a photography tour in the west of Ireland, or in Dublin, use the contact form or book here.
