I just made a trip to Ireland this past winter. I have to say, I made a post for some advice, and the people here on CR were quite kind with their advice for equipment and locations,..Thanks! I owe them some shots from my trip!
Anyway, I took a tripod with a 5D III, and 17-40L, 24-105L, and kept a 50mm 1.4 in my jacket for indoor/ pub/low light shots. Seemed to work OK
I think I could have shot for days in Connemara! Beautiful!
hope my link works,...have fun!
