An Evening With Pawel Zygmunt – Breaking Light Photography.

We had a great night with our guest Pawel Zygmunt tonight. A large crowd turn out to see some of his amazing Landscape photography. Pawel travelled from Dublin to visit with us and described Donegal as the real ‘King’ when it came to his favourite place to photograph. Looking at his work, we didn’t disagree, with some beautiful shots from Malin Head to Port.

There were plenty of fantastic locations, an inspiration to all our inspiring landscape photographers.
Thanks again Pawel, we look forward to seeing you back in Donegal again soon.
