Two hours and twenty-eight minutes on one of the shortest days of the year

Because of its position in the North Atlantic and its geography of low mountains and rolling hills, Ireland is a country of ever changing weather. Rain and sunshine can follow each other on an hourly basis, with light and cloud formations shifting rapidly throughout the day, repeating regular patterns.

This second sequence of 148 images was made with a digital camera at timed intervals – one per minute over two hours and twenty-eight minutes in the middle of a bright, cold December day.
