The Glendalough PhotoPost
The view from the Eastern end of Glendalough’s Upper Lake is breathtaking at all times of the year. Unfortunately, most visitors only get to experience this view on the one day they visit – they miss the changing palette of colours owing to the interplay of light, weather, seasons…
Time Lapse Project
The Glendalough PhotoPost is changing that. It is a time-lapse project by Frank Corry in collaboration with Wicklow Mountains National Park.
Glendalough PhotoPost is a prototype static camera mount for the Glendalough Upper Lake time-lapse photography project.
About the Project
Visitors can pop their camera on the PhotoPost, take a pic and then donate their photo to the Glendalough PhotoPost project via social media platforms.
Speaking about the project, Frank explains how this unique valley view allows superb light refraction and reflection owing to the long body of water. The view is beautifully and almost symetrically framed by the mountains either side that rise up to Van Diemens land in the distance.
Aim of the Project
The eventual aim of the project is to establish a dedicated website where each donated photograph of the lake view taken from the PhotoPost location is used as an individual frame in an ever expanding user generated time-lapse archive film. In advance of this your photographs taken with the PhotoPost can be uploaded via this Glendalough PhotoPost facebook page where all suitable images will form part of the archive.
Next time you’re on the Upper Lake shore, make sure to use the PhotoPost and add your image to the Glendalough PhotoPost project archive on facebook or twitter@UpperLakePhoto.
