Skellig Moon II

The iconic Skellig Islands, off the west coast of Kerry with an April full moon setting in the morning. The once in a lifetime perfect image that took three years and 16 failed attempts to make is by far the most popular image sold in the gallery. This was made just before sunrise in April at 6.13 am as the moon sits just two degress above the horizon. It is the lowest I have witness the moon setting and is coloured yellow as most of the white light is filtered out as it travels through more atmosphere at that elevation. It was still quite dark so a 1 second exposure was required which gives the breaking wave that blurred effect. I had underexposed slightly to ensure the details of the moon were not blown out and used a hard graduated filter over the lens to make sure and balance the exposure.

Often dismissed as a ‘photoshopped’ image… I haven’t grown tired of explaining it to visitors and reliving that wonderful morning again and again!

Skellig Moon II is an open edition available in three sizes.
