Editor's Choice: Photo of the Day

Photographer: George Sheils

Today we feature a long exposure taken at North Strand in Skerries by George Sheils. There is an appealing symmetry and depth to the image. The way the culvert slopes into the sea creates the impression that it extends far out into the horizon.

Interestingly, this long exposure was taken by George on a self-constructed 5 x 4 pinhole camera. Notice how the turbulent areas of the water gain a misty appearance. This is not editing - its a technique known as slow shutter photography. Executed well, the photographer can produce a beautiful blended images that capture the motion in a scene over time. George took this exposure over the course of one and a half minutes. 

A great image of Skerries.
