Photographer and filmmaker David Jazay tweetz:

The Copper Coast, Ballydowane Bay, County Waterford

Photographer Kieran Russel writes:

Very Last minute dash to Ballydowane yesterday evening for a passing lightning storm. Got a fairly good strike rate but as it was almost completely dark composing the images became very difficult.

Dennis Dinneen is at Douglas Hyde Gallery, Trinity College, Dublin, until May 27.
