Light on Tree - Woodland Walk and nice light on tree

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 shot is shown below. This shot was taken on 22nd June at 7pm so there was a lot of light around and sunset was around […]

Montreal Street Scene, Evening photo of street in Montreal

Montreal, Evening Street Scene

I thought I had finished posting photos of Canada when I found this one. I thought that the photo had potential so after a bit of editing I ended up with a version I was happy with. The shot itself was one which I took while walking past this area. Set the camera up on a high ISO (400 or 800 as far as I recall) so that I could get a bit of movement at 1/30s … while all […]

Kilkenny Castle Grounds and Kilkenny Castle Rose Gardens, Kilkenny, Ireland

Kilkenny Castle Evening Shot – 27/Project 52

I didn’t take many photos in recent weeks, again the weather wasn’t great, and I just didn’t get time to take the camera out with me as much as I would have liked … seems to be a common complaint but something I hope to work on in the coming weeks as I shoot in Canada. Spots like Totonto, Niagara Falls, Montreal and Quebec should give me some good shots to work on. With the addition of my new 24-105 […]

The Moon - Almost Full Moon taken on a very cold spring evening.

Moonshot – 9/Project 52

Once again this past week the weather didn’t cooperate with my plans. ISS was in our skies last week and Monday and Tuesday it was too cloudy, Wednesday I didn’t have access to my camera, and Thursday – Sunday was not good for taking photos, with wind and rain. The best I did was a brief window on Sunday evening to get a shot of the almost full moon. I like it better when the moon is ‘almost’ full as […]

Moon and Weather Vane in Dunmore East

Moon and Weather Vane in Dunmore East – Photo of the Week

I took this photo on Tuesday night in Dunmore East as the almost full moon was crossing behind the weather vane on top of the Dunmore East Lighthouse. I though it was an interesting composition (as if you didn’t know where the moon was) with the arrow slightly out of focus. The photo of Moon and Weather Vane in Dunmore East (0.2 sec at f/13 using ISO 100) Another photo I took that evening of Hook Head, taken about 20 minutes […]

Glencomeragh - Carrick Camera Club CCC Shoot

Glencomeragh – Carrick Camera Club Shoot

On Tuesday 14th June, Carrick Camera Club held an evening shoot at Glencomeragh, 10 minutes from Carrick On Suir, Co. Tipperary. I have posted some of my shots from this shoot below… taken before the weather and heavy mist moved in. In the limited time, low evening light and the critical lack of a tripod I was fairly happy with the shots…. especially since the 25 second exposures of the waterfalls was done balancing the camera on mossy rocks. (I […]

Tramore Co. Waterford Evening Photo - Phot of the Week - Tramore

Tramore and Crashing Waves Evening Photo – Photo of the Week

I was out in Tramore last week. It was around 8pm and the sun was beginning to set. Waves were crashing in and there was some nice rays of sun here and there. I took the following photo of Tramore church in the background as the waves roll in at the pier. One of the techniques used in this photo was to keep the camera lens at a fixed length as I walked up and down the pier, trying different […]
