I am delighted that one of my photos was shortlisted for the Morris Oil Calendar 2016.
The shot of Tramore and the Metal Man has been selected under the theme “Friendly, Reliable, Local” in this photo competition … I opted for local, since Tramore is only 10km from Waterford City it seemed like a good fit.
The photo was taken in late May 2015 on a new looped walkway located a few minutes walk from the beach. Using a 70-300mm lens I was able to capture the iconic Metal Man plus a few people strolling along towards the sandhills. I believe the inclusion of people in a shot will always add something, giving a shot a bit more soul or a bit more movement.
There is a peoples choice winner and this is where you came in. In order to vote for this photo please scroll below and Like the shot via your Facebook page. There are plenty of fine photos in the 12 selected by photographer Karen Dempsey all could be worth overall winners, and I do appreciate all votes for my photo.
