Another view of the colorful rocks in Dunquin Harbour, County Kerry, Ireland. It was a very wet, windy and rainy that day making it hard to photograph. Long exposures were especially difficult. But, I had my mind sent on this type of photograph so I did the best I could under these conditions.
I did some research to determine how these colorful rocks were formed. The best hypothesis is that they broke off from the cliffs above and were shaped by the rough seas and relentless surf. Most of the rocks had a very smooth surface and, combined with the slimy algae, made them very slick to walk on.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 35 mm. The camera was set on Manual Mode with the aperture set at f/11, shutter speed at 13 seconds and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability and my Syrp neutral density filter set on 6. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and finalized in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
