I photographed this Valentia Island Farmhouse while touring Valentia Island during my visit to Ireland this summer. There were quite a few abandoned farmhouses on the island. This one was close to the bay and it was by far one of the most interesting.
Valentia Island is one of my favorite places to visit and it is one of Ireland’s most westerly points. It lies off the Iveragh Peninsula in the southwest of County Kerry. It is linked to the mainland by the Maurice O’Neill Memorial Bridge at Portmagee. A car ferry also departs from Reenard Point to Knightstown but I recommend taking the bridge as it is free. The permanent population of the island is about 650. There are a few attractions on the island that I recommend visiting. They include the Signal House, The Lighthouse and the slate quarry.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 19mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/11, shutter speed at 1/50th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and finalized in Photoshop using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
