Gougane Barra

This was taken a few years back in the south west of Ireland in Gougane Barra. I believe the name comes from Saint Finbar.

It’s off the beaten track a bit even by today’s standards. Back in the early 1700’s it must have been very remote and as such was used to celebrate Catholic mass out of the way of unapproving eyes.

The shot was originally taken on Fuji Velvia and scanned using a Minolta film scanner, the name of which escapes me now as I sold it not long after scanning this image. I’d even bet this was taken on the last roll of film I ever shot. I used to take so much more time over shots back then but that’s for another time.

I’d be very interested to know which you prefer, colour or black and white……..
