Landscape photography involves a lot of planning. I’ve hiked the Trassey area quite a bit over the last year and eyed up a particular landscape photo of Slieve Bearnagh – but I knew it would involve a lot of planning to get it just right.

I had hiked up Slievenaglogh for sunrise one winter morning, to shoot the view looking back towards Slieve Bearnagh, and that’s when I came up with the idea for last night’s shot.

With yesterday being the Summer Solstice, I knew I would have the best chance of getting the valley flooded with side light just before the sun set (as the sun would be as far west as possible), and if things worked out, I could also get the moon in the shot too. This would be a huge task and would have to be shot as an ultra wide pano image. But I also needed clear skies in both directions which can often be hard to predict in the mountains.

So did it work? Well, what do you think….

God’s glory is on tour in the skies,God-craft on exhibit across the horizon.Madame Day holds classes every morning,Professor Night lectures each evening.Their words aren’t heard, their voices aren’t recorded,But their silence fills the earth: unspoken truth is spoken everywhere… (Psalm 19)

I’ve just added this landscape photo of Slieve Bearnagh to our online store, so if you would like to hang something like this in your home, you can check it out HERE.
