From the Sally Gap to Lough Dan

Pinhole - Round Wood to Lough Dan

One of the wonderful things about this country is that you are never really sure where a small laneway or an open gate can lead you. One of my favourite walks in the Wicklow mountains is the stroll from where I ditch my car on the Sally Gap road and walk downhill towards Lough Dan.

The stroll is very pleasant and a steep enough downward amble most of the way to the Lough. At one point the path changes and you follow to course of the Cloghoge River. The mature river meanders past deer and open bog land before entering Lough Dan. The climb back up the hill is always a bit rough bit well worth the efforts.

All photos where taken with my Zero 4 x 5. The black and white shots are on Tri-X and the colour stuff is Ektar

  1. These are wonderful! I have a roll of tri-x in my zero at the moment and was curious about how it would turn out. I’ve never used it for pinhole before. I ran out of Ektar so I thought I’d try it. Nice to see your results here with it!


    1. Yeah I was glad they turned out so well. I had planned top use Fp4 of Pan 50+ but I forgot to check what was in my bag. It was a nice clear day so I thought the 400 would be way to fast but the woods were shaded so it worked out well. I have mostly been shooting B&W in my zero lately as I want to print some of the results!
