How the Photo was Taken

I took this photo with Nikon D 810 and Nikkor 16-35 f 4 lens at 25 mm, F8, 3 sec, ISO 100. I used Lee landscape polarizing filter, Lee little stopper filter and Lee 3 stops nd grad filter. I altered image in Photoshop

Photo Location

I took this shot in Dunlewy county Donegal Ireland 23/07/2017 at 6:03 AM I arrived very late as when driving through Glenveagh National Park I spotted wounded red deer in the middle of the road. Poor animal was hit by some truck and driver never stopped. It had broken legs with bones shattered. I secured the place and stopped traffic. Locals called Gards and they contacted Rangers. Don't know how somebody can be so cruel. After arriving in Dunlewy we couldn't find any place to pitch tents. Locals came with help and allowed us to do it on GAA field :-) When we woke up sky was fully overcast. Then when at the lake it's started getting better and cleared almost completely by sunrise. Midges were vicious that morning crawling even between filters. :-) and it was hard to stay there longer. I came up with this shot of smoky Mount Errigal.
