The old Pier – Donegal

Rusty pier – Donegal

When it comes to hidden gems hunting, Instagram is a gorgeous resource. I had seen this rusty thing a couple of times on my Instagram feed before deciding it was worth a visit, last winter. It’s amazing how we can be happy with very little when we are behind a lens.

I liked the curvy shape of the old pier, which works well as a leading line, guiding the eye through the image. The solid structure and the rocks did the rest of the job creating a nice contrast with the ocean.

Location: This rusty gem here is in Shrove beach, at the very top-east of Donegal.

What to shoot: The old pier and rocks.

Ideal time to shoot: Sunrises and sunsets offer usually the best light and colours. Also, with a darker sky it is easier to play with long exposures. This place works better at high tides, when the water surface is closer to the pier.

Gear: Wide angle lenses to standard zooms.

Coordinates: N 55° 13′ 35″; W 6° 55′ 42″
