Taken in the eye of the mother of all storms.."Storm Ali" rapidly approached Ireland on the 18th of September. Megan & Sean were nothing short of amazing as they braved the elements during the day. Thankfully storms create thy most wonderful light and ended up being a day filled with many awesome images.

Taken on the spiral staircase of the beautiful Bellinter House in Navan (Ireland).The staircase is actually closed off to the public because of its age but often you have to take a few risks in life to get that killer shot and then apologize profusely to the hotel management after about not noticing the safety sign :) My wonderful bride Elena originally from Moldova and her dashing husband Padraig from Co. Tipperary were lit with a kiss of flash combined with a mag-grid aimed at the veil,the steps were light by the light spilling in through the large window overhead. The image was loosely based around the "Fibonacci spiral".56th Collection
