I love the NLC season, the night sky is never truly dark anymore with a strong twilight glow visible from dusk until dawn, this glow can generate truly wonderful visual treats and ample photo opportunities with the ocean reflecting those surreal midnight colours. A friend and I had a brew and snack then decided to do some shooting at the legendary Dunluce Castle, this castle along with Ballintoy Harbour are my two favourite locations along the entire Antrim coastline. The castle is ancient and full of history, being able to do photography beside this beautiful castle flush with the Atlantic Ocean is an honor and an experience which is difficult to describe unless you experience it for yourself. We checked out the various angles during dusk then when the sky 'darkened' we began shooting the scene using our wide angle lenses, this was taken with the 10-22mm at 10mm showing the castle, sea, and twilight sky. The cirrus clouds actually looked very impressive fanning skyward from a distant point above the horizon which looked really cool. It's amazing to see the yellow sunset glow on the horizon while stars were visible at the same time, Capella can be seen to the L of the cirrus, taken on May 25th 2013, read the full image report from this night here. * All images are available for sale in the form of photo prints, canvas or digital files for licensing, if you are interested in a purchase simply drop me an email.
