I am returning to Nendrum again, a place near to my home where I visit on a regular basis in an attempt to capture something different. Sometimes the light obliges and on other occasions it frustrates me. My visits usually coincide with early evening when the sun is setting and its position in the sky is behind the site ruins. Here is an older image which produced pleasing results.
In this case I am content for the ruins to be almost silhouetted, allowing just a hint of the stone detail to show, as it is really the sky that I am interested in. No filters were used, but In Lightroom I applied a Fuji Velvia 50 preset which converts the image to resemble a print produced by Fuji Velvia transparency film, beloved by landscape photographers.
Given the historical significance of this site to Ulster’s early christianity I think I have created an appropriate mood with this image.
