Our featured photo today is a simple but ambient composition of Mount Errigal by Gareth McCormack. Located in Donegal, Errigal is the highest peak in the County and the tallest within the mountain range known by locals as the "Seven Sisters". Gareth captured this shot as the sun sets a stunning amber yellow. He explains the location:
"There are so many different angles from which to appreciate the iconic form of Errigal Mountain. This one is from high on Farscallop Mountain, in Glenveagh National Park. On this spring evening I used a telephoto lens to focus though a gap in the Derryveagh Mountains. The backlighting provided by the setting sun reduced the mountain to a simple geometric silhouette, allowing me to draw attention to its curious, fish-tail summit."
I love how simple yet atmospheric this composition is. You can browse or buy Gareth's prints here.
