Ballyness Bay, Falcarragh onlooking Tory Island, County Donegal, Ireland

One of my most memorable captures in recent years. This photo was captured from ‘Ballyness Harbour’ looking offshore to ‘Tory Island’. I focused on this stretch of sand bank between the harbour & Tory island, then within moments this gentleman came leisurely strolling across the beach & straight into my frame. A flock of sea birds also passed at the exact time in a V formation. I could hardly believe my luck ☘ It felt like a one in a million chance because he was the only person on this beach at the time!

This image was captured at a 600mm zoomed in focal range, enabling the perception of the background to be brought forward much closer & larger (lens compression) for example in this scene the gentleman is 0.5 mile away & Tory Island is 8.5 miles away! This is the reason I love my super zoom lens as compositions like this are impossible by any other means. If I can’t reach the location, then I can “reel in” the location to me ?
