Editors Choice: Photo of the Day

Photographer: Gareth McCormack

Our featured photo today was taken at Kylemore Lough in County Galway by Gareth McCormack. Gareth explains:

"Kylemore Lough lies at the foot of the Twelve Bens in Connemara, Co Galway. I have always considered the solitary farmhouse an evocative scene, and was lucky to be driving beside the lake as a day of rain and mist suddenly cleared. For a fleeting moment, the setting sun imparted the clouds and mountains with a beautiful warm glow. I had just enough time to shoot a single frame before the light was lost once more."

This is certainly a unique shot by Gareth taken with just enough soft evening light to light up the mountains. The deep blueish violet light creates a special scene. You can browse or buy Gareth McCormack's prints here.
