I visit the West Coast of Ireland 2 or 3 times a year and you are guaranteed 2 things. One, spectacular coastline and two, changeable weather. This was only my 2nd time to visit the beautiful and spectacular Cliffs of Moher. Sadly at the time the weather had closed in, it was misty and well past sunset when this was taken. I had planned for the picture to be taken around or after sunset but the mist wasn’t part of that plan. If I’m honest I was a bit despondent when I left.
I have made many nice images before in adverse weather conditions, well living on the island of Ireland you’d better be adaptable or find something else to do! More often than not inclement weather can be the most interesting time for a landscape photographer. On this occasion I had zero expectations with this one. To be honest I’d forgotten that I’d even taken the pictures so memorable was the evening. That was until about a week later when I processed the B&W negatives. That’s the nice thing about shooting film, every time you process your films it’s a voyage of discovery!
Anyway once I’d seen the negatives I was a little more interested to go into the darkroom and start playing with the image. It’s still a work in progress but I think there is some potential.
