Congratulations to Mary McDonald who has been randomly selected as the winner. She has chosen Peter McCabe’s photo of Classiebawn, Mullaghmore as her prize. What a beautiful picture to hang on your wall!
Peter has years of experience and enthusiasm, and has captured some of the most beautiful places on earth, right here in Ireland.
Here are the three pictures to choose from, with a few comments from Peter about taking the shot.
This location on Mullaghmore head is spectacular at the best of times. However on this late winter day, with the clouds hanging low and a snow covered Ben Bulben peeking through, the location had an almost Game of Thrones feel to it. Using a car as a wind breaker, I fired of a few frames, each as dramatic as the next. Thankfully two were sharp.
Derryclare Lough, Connemara
Amongst the most photographed lakes in Ireland, where many a tour bus stops on their way to Clifden. The location has always attracted me, from a photographic perspective it has everything, the biggest issue is the power lines that run across the lake, which are a photographic nightmare. However on this morning, with dawn breaking and the rain falling, those same power lines disappeared amongst moody sky, and I finally got my image.
The most famous view of the Abbey is from within the grounds, if I am honest it has been photographed to death. Determined to avoid the cliche, I setup a tripod at the lakes edge, and photographed it from a low angle, making the most of the smooth water and blue and greens within the scene.
