Brian and Gavin “At the Silage”

Brian and Gavin “At the Silage”. Cut day one, tossed day two in the afternoon, and baled in the evening. This film is shot until the last ten seconds with a zoom lens handheld. Which was a new experience for me, having shot before with wider lens and drone. The music is free from the internet.

Dooneen Mine Allihies

Our Beara 3K a day walk took us on a return trip to Dooneen. Which was the first place where Copper was extracted in the 19th Century. The initial adit went in from the sea shore and is still visible today, it actually goes through to the beach on the other side, however it is now blocked…. The Dooneen mine later had an engine pump house built, as it was always full of water. The mine never made a profit and was closed down. The engine house was demolished and the stone was used to build a local house.
There are some beautiful rocks and cliffs down there, amazing.
Thanks for all the likes and shares and especially the comments. A good few hours goes into the making of one of these films.
Cheers, Slainte and stay safe.
