Clashduff wide angle

Play of Clouds and Light

Preparing for our tour of the island I acquired an “L” grade Canon lens, the 24mm f/1.4L USM. It is used to good effect here and in the following photographs from our traverse of Healy Pass, a “famine road.”

Here we are at the southern edge of the townland surmounting the pass, Clashduff, in English. In Irish, na Claise Duibhe translates to “Black Ravine.” There are ten Republic of Ireland townlands with this name including one in the middle of Cork City near Finbar Cathedral.

I’ve used portrait mode here, with the “wide angle” capturing the clouds.
