  • 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 […]

  • Ardmore Round Tower and Cliff Walk

    Ardmore Round Tower and Cliff Walk

    I visited Ardmore in late January in the middle of 2 forecast storms, on the one day I took the camera out, luckily I had a perfect day for taking photos. Ardmore Co. Waterford is a great location for a photo walk, combining beaches, cliff walks and inland areas as well as the history and […]

  • Morning Photography – Swans on the Lake

    Morning Photography – Swans on the Lake

    Morning can be a particularly good time to take great photos. More and more I am refraining from taking photos between 11am and 4pm as the colours are just washed out by the strong overhead sun (unless of course the sun is not an issue and you have some interesting clouds or sky to enjoy.) […]

  • Experimenting with ND Filters and Long Exposures

    Experimenting with ND Filters and Long Exposures

    Having recently purchased some ND filters I had being longing to try them out for quite some time. I decided to try the seascape at sunset style with the waves crashing across the rocks. The waves become misty and it looks quite nice but I had never tried this before. I am going to outline […]

    Winter Scenes and Frosty Mornings

    Frosty mornings bring with it some lovely scenes which are great to photograph. Normally you will get crisp mornings, sometimes fog and you might also get an impressive sunrise, made even more impressive if there are some nice clouds in the sky at the time. If you are taking photos of frosty or cold mornings, […]

    Niagara Falls at Night – 30/Project52

    Working without a tripod is always recommended, working without a tripod in low light is vital … how about doing a long exposure without a tripod? The following image was taken at Niagara Falls about 30 minutes after sunset and it was a 20 second long exposure of Niagara Falls at Night. Thanks to a […]

  • Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos passing Hook Head

    Tall Ship Stavros S Niarchos passing Hook Head

    This post and this photo could not have happened without the power of Twitter. Sunday evening I was browsing the Twitter feed on my @shanesphoto feed and I noticed a few tweets about the Stavros S Niarchos which was berthed in Waterford over the weekend. One of these mentioned that the Tall Ship Stavros S […]

  • As the Tide Rushes In – Kilfarrasy, Co. Waterford – 16/Project52

    As the Tide Rushes In – Kilfarrasy, Co. Waterford – 16/Project52

    I have been trying to get out to the beach late in the evening for a long time and eventually last night I did, however I didn’t have my full compliment of filters so I made the job a bit tougher than normal. I had been scouting Hook Head, Kilfarrasy and Annestown Beach as possible […]
