• Supermoon August 10th

    Supermoon August 10th

    I didn’t get out with the camera in time to see the Supermoon rise on August 10th (once source quoted 10:48 as being the moon rise time) . By the time I released it was earlier I decided to wait until the moon was thigh enough in the sky to get a clear shot at […]

  • SuperMoon Shot with New 70-300 Lens

    SuperMoon Shot with New 70-300 Lens

    My Canon 70-300 lens got a battering over the past few years (I had it over 6 years) so I invested in a brand new 70-300. The latest version of this zoom lens has IS and 2 auto-focus modes. The zoom is incredible and I have taken some great shots of aircraft at 36,000ft, on […]

  • Woodland Evening Light

    Woodland Evening Light

    I always like unusual lighting conditions and on a recent woodland walk I noticed a tree which was being lit in spots thanks to the overhead canopy and surrounding trees filtering the light. This resulted in only a section of the tree being lit and thus created an effect which I very much liked. The […]

  • St. Mary’s Cathedral Kilkenny

    St. Mary’s Cathedral Kilkenny

    On a recent walk in Kilkenny as the evening was closing in, the rays of the sun and the silhouette of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Kilkenny drew my attention. Using spot metering I was able to place the cathedral so that it was darker than the background and thus also showing the lighting and texture of […]

  • Robin on Tree Stump

    Robin on Tree Stump

    I was testing my new Canon 70-300 lens and spotted this Robin Red Breast standing in a patch of sunlight on a tree stump. I took 2 shots, in the first you couldn’t see his head but this was the second. I was very happy with the shot as the feather lines and detail were […]

  • Beauty of Swans

    Beauty of Swans

    During a recent visit to Naas I went for a walk around the lakes near the hospital, and although I lived in Naas for some time, this is an area I had never visited. The swans had their young nearby, still fluffy and probably only a few weeks old. There was also some activity amongst […]

  • Spring Bee Photoshoot

    Spring Bee Photoshoot

    With Spring eventually arriving I was taking some photos of Spring flowers and noticed a bee full of pollen and tried to get some snaps with the 24-105mm lens. Not a Macro lens but by getting in close and cropping later you can make the photo look closer than you actually were. I was also […]

  • Hook Head, Co .Wexford

    Hook Head, Co .Wexford

    On a brief trip to Hook Head, the oldest intact operational light house in the world, I decided to try out some ND grad filters. It was a sunny day so the ND grad filters would have controlled the light in areas of the photo which are too bright, such as the sky and clouds. […]

  • Waterford N25 Bridge at Night

    Waterford N25 Bridge at Night

    The last time I visited the River Suir for a view of the N25 Bypass Bridge, also known as the Cat Flap to locals, I had a different camera and a different lens. Now armed with a Canon 7D and a 24-105 L Lens I was attempting a re-shoot. Shot just after the blue hour […]
