Ireland | Cong – Chasing Light
All Cinema dougKIM photography Ireland Nikon

Ireland | Cong

Being a huge fan of John Ford’s “The Quiet Man” since I was a kid, I could not wait to visit the village of Cong in County Mayo where they filmed much of the movie. The tiny village is dominated by tourist traps for fans of the film but off the main strip, things settle down and the quaintness of life in western Ireland takes over.

Drive about an hour north of Galway on Route 334 on the Circular Road and just enjoy the scenery.

Shot with a Nikon F5, 35-70mm Nikkor, and Kodak Tri-X 400.

  • well, of course, the colours were amazing and lush. the light was always subdued because of the constant cloud cover, everything was wet and glistening from the periodic rains so the greens of the grass and shrubs and the colors of the small wildflowers popped everywhere.

    still, i rarely have any desire to record anything in color. with b&w, you shoot people or a setting. with color, you’re shooting clothes, wall paint and flowers.

    and i saw no redheads.
