Photographer's Note

My first ever attempt at startrails, very pleased at what i got even though i messed it up a bit.
I did 12 x 5 min exposures and only 7 were ok as the lens fogged over and i didn't realize till i was finished. I blended them using a stacking action in PS and merged the finished file with a separate exposure that i had done some light painting on the dolmen using my torch.
Learned a lot trying this, especially that it is quite difficult to get right.

Some info on Ballykeel Dolmen:
Ballykeel - Baile Caol, the narrow farmstead -is a small river valley at the western foot of Slieve Gullion Mountain, Just over 7 km south west of the village of Camlough in South Armagh, Ballykeel Dolmen. a well-preserved Neolithic monument over 5,000 years old, stands on the edge of a level terrace overlooking a tributary of the Forkill River and is known locally as 'The Hag's Chair'.
The notched capstone (the only one to have been replaced on a dolmen) barely rests on the uprights. The 'chamber' is about 1.5m wide x 3m long and faces south east.


Thanks for looking :)
Gary
