How I took that Shot – Keith Johnson

13_Keith Johnson - Winter

Keith Johnson took first place in Grade C in our recent 'Winter' competition with the beautiful landscape shot above. This is how he made the image:

The photo was taken on 2016/01/07. I had a couple of hours to spare in Killarney and luckily found I had the camera in the boot of the car. I headed up to Ladies View thinking the snow and sun would be better there but there was only a sparse covering so I headed back down and stopped at a flooded Long Range, to take a quick look.

It has never been my favorite place but it looked good so took the camera out and waded out till I could find a good view. I waited for the sun to show in the background and quickly took one handheld shot. My feet were freezing by now so I skipped back to the car pretty quickly!

Taken about 2 pm with a Canon 650d.. lens 18-55 ..f22, 1/13,100 ISO
