• 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 […]

  • Ladybird out for a Walk

    Ladybird out for a Walk

    This photo of a ladybird (or ladybug in the USA) I just liked because of the simplicity – one small ladybird in an vast green area. I also liked the texture of the grass stem which the lady bird is walking over. I deliberately used a low aperture so as to blur the background and […]

  • Parisenne Archways

    Parisenne Archways

    On a visit to Paris you can be guaranteed of having amazing subjects to photograph. The people, the architecture, the landmarks, night photography and much more. On one such visit, in the courtyard behind the Louvre Museum, I spotted an archway leading to a bridge and on into the distance. I liked the lines it […]

  • 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 […]

  • Revisiting old photos

    Revisiting old photos

    I noticed that I had a lot of photos from 2010/2011 which I had backed up but very few were every touched up or had much editing done on them. There were 2 reasons for this; firstly I didn’t have very good editing software back then and secondly when tools I did have, were limited […]
