Today we feature Mount Errigal and the Derryveagh Mountains in Winter by Gareth McCormack. He has captured the scene on a wintry afternoon: Gareth explains:
"During Irish winters, temperatures regularly drop low enough to freeze areas of upland bog. This shot was taken late one January afternoon, when the low sun was highlighting the auburn grasses and providing a contrast for the icy surface of the bog pools. A three-stop graduated filter helped to balance the exposure difference between the relatively dark foreground and snow-capped Errigal Mountain on the horizon."
