A trip to Ireland is not complete without visiting its historic churches. I had a chance to pay a visit to the St. Nicholas Church of Ireland in County Limerick during my recent visit to the country. I was in the area to photograph the Adare Castle and I was able to park at the church and walk over to the castle to photograph the castle. I wanted to photograph some of the more famous churches but the opportunity to do so was not there.
The Adare Friary, as it was once known and known as the “Black Abbey” prior to that, is an Augustinian Friary founded in 1316 by the Earl of Kildare. It is now known as “St. Nicholas’ Church of Ireland” parish church, and St Nicholas’ National School. The Church of Ireland is an autonomous province of the Anglican Communion. It is the second largest Christian church on the island after the Catholic Church.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 16mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/5th of a second and the ISO set at 400. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and finalized in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
