Having lugged his "Royal" camera down to the beach, Mr. French persisted and took this unusual shot of the light entering a cave at Ballybunion in County Kerry. Unusual for a number of reasons - not least of which clearly he is experimenting in low light photography and has done remarkably well for the facilities and equipment he had available.
