Day 6 of the landscape challenge - I know I'm stretching the definition here. I told a family story through photos to my +The Arcanum cohort and rediscovered this image. My great grandparents died and left 5 children. My grandfather (age about 13) and his two sisters went to work, but the youngest boys were too little; there was no one to care for them. They raised enough money to send them to their grandmother in Ireland - at a time when many were leaving. These two small orphans endured an ocean crossing to be raised by people they didn't know. When they arrived in Cork, this church would have dominated their view. It was humbling to stand and think of my great uncles and everything they went through.

Landscape challenge day 4/7 - nominated by +Adam Dooley. I've chosen to continue the tour of Ireland. This ruin is in the tiny hamlet of Carrigtohill in Midleton, Cork. My maternal great grandmother lived on a tiny farm about 1/2 mile from here. While the house no longer exists, you cannot help but feel that you're walking in the footsteps of your ancestors and honoring their bravery - both those who left for America and those who remained. Ireland graced us with blue skies this day.

Works nicely with my eyes :) The blues and greens are great against all the concrete and stone.

Thank you to +Adam Dooley (one of the members of my +The Arcanum cohort) for the landscape challenge. Day 1 of 7 is a bit of a #tbt to 2012. I feel very rooted in this place. It's as if somehow Ireland knows our DNA belongs here. Our first stop when we get off the plane is to put our toes in the sand at Malahide and we know we are home.

Oh how funny! You are right; it is called Dooley's. I loved driving in Ireland - the challenge was real - merging and in roundabouts.

Landscape challenge Day 7/7. You hear that the greens in Ireland are innumerable and breathtaking. Images just don't do them justice. My advice? Experience it for yourself. Often. Thank you to +Adam Dooley for posing this challenge. I hope you've enjoyed this photography travelogue as much as I have. +The Arcanum

I was away from my computer yesterday, so I'm behind. Today is a landscape challenge two-fer; here are day two and day three. Since +Adam Dooley put forth the challenge, I'm keeping with my Irish theme (don't let my last name fool you - I was originally a Ryan).
The first image is a view of the Blarney Stone from the ground. Eagle-eyed viewers will see the silhouette of the lovely man who keeps the brave from plunging to their deaths.
The second image is a scene you will only find if you blaze your own path - stopping to see places not listed in any tour guide. This oft-traveled footpath leading from a hilltop farmhouse down to a secluded beach.

Amazing! Look what New England light pollution interferes with.
 
A Hint of the Aurora Over Lace Lake
Mission Mountain Wilderness Area, Montana

The stars swirl and a hint of the Aurora Borealis shines over Lace Lake in the Mission Mountain Wilderness Area of Montana.

Photography Tip: This photo is a single twenty-five minute exposure. When I shot this image, the Northern Lights were just the faintest pale glow across the distant sky. Like the swirling stars even a tiny light source will slowly become brighter and brighter to the camera if you extend the shutter speed into the minutes and hours range.

I created a start-to-finish video tutorial on the image processing that this type of photo usually requires a few weeks ago. MSJPhotography.com subscribers can watch the complete tutorial in full 1080p HD. Everyone else can watch the first six minutes in 720p for free at http://bit.ly/1E8XDwH

Also, I will be leading another Night Skies and The Northern Lights Photography Workshop this March up in Churchill, Manitoba. Space is extremely limited. More details at http://www.davidmarx.com/workshops/night-skies-and-the-northern-lights-photography-workshop/

Yes, I'm sure it's still quite dark there. Although I'm thinking I'd like to head to Montana at some point, too!
