My new Photologo - Revitalising my photos and my blog As a photographer I want to ensure that my work is protected in some way. I had in the past created my own photo logo signatures. These were sometimes text, or a combination of some symbol and...

Monster A380 emerging from the clouds

While I was in London I visited Hyde Park and there was an approach to Heathrow on the far side of the park, running parallel to the direction in which I was walking. I spotted an A380 in the distance and saw it was going to have to pass through a series of...

A Visit to Garnish Island, Co. Cork

I visited Garnish Island when I was about 12 years old and I recall that you left the harbour on the mainland, with the typical Irish fields and views and ended up on this paradise type island. The island had plants I had never seen before and as a child it...

A 300mm lens is worth having in your camera bag

I have a few lenses - Canon 24-105 L lens, a Tamron 10-24 wide angle, a Canon 50mm prime lens and a 300mm lens , specifically the 70-300mm Canon zoom lens (f4.0,non L type). On a recent walk in Ardmore Co. Waterford I ended up having the zoom lens on...

Tramore and the Metal Man

There is a brand new looped walk behind the old Tramore racecourse near the back strand. It was from here on a sunny April day I decided to use a Zoom lens to compress the scene and focus on the metal man with some passers by also in shot. The lighting was very...

Hong Kong by Night from the Peak

This photo was taken from the summit of The Peak in Hong Kong. This area is certainly worth the admission fee, with an incredible view. However, due to the cityscape, it is certainly a popular area. If you are intending taking a few shots...
