To simply put it, the Cliffs of Moher have been elusive for me! I lived in Ireland for about a year and attempted going twice but the weather was so bad I didn’t want to ruin the views. So I always thought I would come and try again since I lived there…. but only did so once more (same thing happened again!!). So the main goal of this trip was to see the Cliffs of Moher. Fingers crossed!!
And guess what? The first day was so foggy you couldn’t see more than 20 feet!! Failure number three!!
It wasn’t worth going but good thing we were staying in Galway and could come again on the next day. And luckily….the weather was amazing! About halfway through the day all the clouds cleared up and the blue skies and sun appeared. The weather was actually a bit hot! But I’m not complaining with the views we could see!
I ended up shooting three timelapses, one from the central area with the Syrp Genie Mini panning across the cliffs and coastline. The other two were on either end of the Cliffs which you can walk right up to the cliffs edges! All videos were shot with my Nikon D7100 and 28 mm f/2.8 prime lens between 2 and 3 second intervals.
Enjoy all three videos!
Also my full 4K Ireland video is below make sure to check it out!
I haven’t had the chance to write any posts recently because of work travel and computer issues but I am now getting to some of my content from Ireland.
I recently went to Ireland with some friends for a wedding and we had the chance to travel around the country for 10 days. Our first stop was Dublin and after a red eye flight we went straight to the Guinness and Jameson factories! Both were a really cool experience but I preferred the Jameson tour for the tour guide and tasting!
Afterwards we went to Temple Bar for food and drinks and then I checked out Trinity college to shoot a day to night timelapse. I had an idea of the composition I wanted since I had been there before. The sky was amazingly perfectly clear (abnormal for Ireland) so there wasn’t many exciting sunset colors. I put my camera in Aperture priority (f/10 and ISO 800) and with an interval for 5 seconds. I ended up shooting for only about 25 minutes since I was really tired and jet lagged. The shutter speed eventually reached 2.0 seconds. Overall the video turned out pretty good!
Look for more posts this week from our trips around Ireland including Kinsale, the Ring of Kerry, Dingle, Galway, and Northern Ireland!
