Picture Story

Lough Muckno is a freshwater lake in County Monaghan near the town of Castleblayney. It forms part of a 900 acre Leisure Park hosting activities such as orienteering, nature walks/trails, water skiing, coarse fishing, peace garden and picnic areas. It was a very cold frosty morning that I decided to make my first visit to this location. After an early morning alarm call and a 45 minute drive I arrived at Lough Muckno just as the sun was rising.

It was a very still peaceful morning with very little wind. Which I knew made it perfect for getting a reflection photograph without to much trouble. It was only a matter of finding a composition in what was for me a new location. However luck was with me and after a very short walk I discovered this pleasing composition. I attached my camera to my tripod and used a cable release cable to get the shot. I have been to this location during the Autumn season on several occasions since that morning, but never got the right light to match this one.
