Every Friday night for the summer we are organising mini-outings. So when we heard of a trip from Baltimore to Fastnet Rock Lighthouse to photograph it at sunset we just had to go! The trip wias run by renowned, Baltimore based, landscape photographer Rohan Reilly (www.rohanreilly.com)

 

So on a July Friday evening ten of us loaded up for what proved to be a very long but truly rewarding and memorable evening.

We set sail from Baltimore harbour at 7.30pm not to return to land until 11.30pm. While out at the lighthouse our captain, Gerry Smith, expertly manoeuvred our boat "The Wave Cheiftain" to every angle so that we could photograph this majestic rock. Mother Nature provided us with a glorious sunset of amazing and quickly changing colours. 

Having returned home it was decided that each of the ten of us would produce one image to display in the Fermoy Camera Club annual exhibition in Fermoy library.

The exhibition will run for the month of August at the library. It contains one panel dedicated to the lighthouse as well as a wide and varied collection of club members photos. The exhibition is a must see for all all photographers as well as people who appreciate quality images.
