The special light of Kerry

March is a fantastic month for dramatic light in Kerry. the days are longer, the temperature a bit more pleasent and nature starts a new beginning. many of reasons to go out and see whats happening in front of your lens. the first lambs walking the green fields and birds like Snipe, Finch and Robin are everywhere. the Blackbirds in our garden searching for worms. Camelia and Daffodil bushes are in full bloom. the South West wind blows the clouds over Kerry towards the midland region, while we are looking in to the sun.
I took a lot of photos with dramatic clouds recently and you will notice that they work as a wonderful filter to prevent reflections. I haven not changed any saturation or used any filter for the photos, just pure clean Irish air, fresh from the sea at the right time of the day. after a couple of weeks with fire and smoke, a great joy.
all photos with tripod and 70-200 zoom, Canon 5d
