On this day in 1831, Charles Darwin set out on a voyage to the Pacific aboard the HMS Beagle. Darwin's discoveries during the voyage helped him form the basis of his theories on evolution.

Boyle at Night

Taken 23rd December on a bitterly cold night in Boyle. The town was almost deserted but the light was interesting. Shot taken from The Crescent looking down Bridge Street.

Photo: 10mm wide-angle lens. ISO 100. Bracketed exposure; 0.5 seconds (-1, 0, +1) @ f/ 5.3 I used a relatively wide aperture in an attempt to control lens flare as this can be exaggerated with small apertures. Exposures blended in PS with some adjustments to white balance.
