On the day in 1956, Elvis Presley records "Heartbreak Hotel".

Drumod Railway Station

Very challenging light in this shot from the pedestrian bridge that crosses over the railway tracks at Drumod Station in Co. Leitrim. The lights throw a serious yellow cast on everything they touch. The above is as close to the effect as I could get to create a realistic interpretation of the scene. I intend to return to this spot and see what it's like with some light left in the sky.
