SUNSET AT HOLYWOOD PIER, IRELAND, 1994

 

Chris Hill

 

“I took this photo in the village of Hollywood, about eight miles from Belfast. It’s the hometown of the golfer Rory McIlroy and the nearest beach to the city center. When I arrived, there were a lot of people playing down by the water and the sun wasn't down far enough. But as the sun went down, people left the beach, dark clouds appeared, and I knew it was going to be a perfect shot. Dark skies like this are very much an Irish phenomenon. With the sun coming through them and shining across the water, it was perfect.

I took it on transparency without a filter. It was a straight shot. I thought the sun had gone already, but then it reappeared for a few seconds. The special bit was being there to capture it.”
