This is a picture of my friend and his dog Rebel on our regular walk out to the Poolbeg Lighthouse on the Great South Wall recently. I captured this image in a split second. Just saw the shot and bang! It only took the squeeze of the button, and the moment was saved for eternity. I knew looking at the picture that it had something special about it.
