Killarney National Park lies about 4km from the town of the same name. It's one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ireland. It is overshadowed by Irelands highest mountain range the McGillycuddy's Reeks. The park is the oldest in Ireland formed in 1932 when Senator Arthur Vincent and his family entrusted Muckross House and estate to the Irish state. The whole region is one of the most scenically stunning locations in Ireland, and a photographer's paradise especially in the autumn when the colours are truly outstanding. The National Park is managed by National Parks and Wildlife Service.

One of the most attractive waterfalls in the national park. Its location requires a long walk but is well worth the effort when you get there.

One of the finished images from the shoot. I frequently get questions about the ideal shutter speeds to select when photographing waterfalls. There is no definitive shutter speed. The drop, flow, and water level are all important and have a direct bearing on the final result. 

Photographic details: Nikon D850, 24-70mm lens, Novoflex PRO75, MagicBall, and NISI filter system.
