  • Waterford by Night – Blast from the Past

    Waterford by Night – Blast from the Past

    I was recently going through some photos and I found a shot taken from the now closed Ardree Hotel in 2005, Waterford by Night. It was my first long exposure and without a tripod I managed to take this 4 second exposure with a Fuji S7000. In 2008 I entered the Imagine Arts Festival Photography […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

    2012 Photography Year in Review

    With 2012 now over, I am having a look back at the photoblog, my photos during 2012, the blog traffic and what photography blog posts were the most popular during 2012. I got the WordPress email which had some very interesting stats. I have combined this report with some from Google Analytics and the results […]

  • iPhoto7 – iPhone Photography Challenge : 20/Project52

    iPhoto7 – iPhone Photography Challenge : 20/Project52

    I played around with the idea of using the camera which is with me 100% of the time, my trusty iPhone4S which has a great 8Mb pixel camera. One photo per day for 5 to 7 days seemed like an easy challenge but I was trying to create quality photos, or different photos than just […]
