Today we feature a black and white composition taken at Skerries Mills in County Dublin by Bryan Hanna. Amazingly, milling started at this location back to the 16th century. The land originally belonged to Augustinian monastics who used stone-ground milling techniques. The windmill continued to be used until the early 20th century. The site has since been restored and visitors can now tour the centre! Bryan has captured it here beautifully and explains the shot:
"A low angle was used to show the impressive height of the windmill. A long exposure was also used to add movement to the sky mimicking the motion of the windmills blades."
This print is available from €35. You can browse or buy Bryan Hanna's prints here.
