Newcastle Marina

Following the trip to St John’s Point we ventured towards the Mournes or more specifically Slieve Donard. Donard is the highest mountain is Slieve Donard at 849 metres (2,785 ft) and despite every intention of clambering our way up we decided that after the St John’s walk a trip the marina was much more fitting.

The following photos are a mix of 17-40mm through to 50mm. The main featured image at the top was taken with the 50mm at an aperture of 1.4. This allowed the boat to be in perfect focus and the old boat house to shallow.

It was difficult to decided whether to shoot 100% in black and white or colour due to the fact the lighting was literally changing by the second. The dense cloud cover meant we went from a summers day through

to almost an late evening feel. This photo was taken with the ND9 filter attached but it still demonstrates how dark it managed to get due to the mountains and cloud. Okay, I did help it a long a little in Adobe Lightroom too.
