  • St. Mary’s Cathedral Kilkenny

    St. Mary’s Cathedral Kilkenny

    On a recent walk in Kilkenny as the evening was closing in, the rays of the sun and the¬†silhouette of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Kilkenny drew my attention. Using spot metering I was able to place the cathedral so that it was darker than the background and thus also showing the lighting and texture of […]

  • Kilkenny Castle Evening Shot – 27/Project 52

    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 […]

  • Nibbling Squirrel – 10/Project 52

    Nibbling Squirrel – 10/Project 52

    This photo for last weeks Project 52 entry, a bit late posting it but better late than never.¬† This weeks photo is yet another squirrel (a different one note) but this time its nibbling on some leaves and it was quite an interesting shoot. I saw the squirrel from a distance, its back to me, […]

  • Grey Squirrel with a Red Head – 7/Project 52

    Grey Squirrel with a Red Head – 7/Project 52

    In the grounds of Kilkenny Castle there are many areas where you can catch a glimpse of some amazing wildlife, from ducks, geese, swans, and many other types of small woodland birds to squirrels and even on a rare occasion badgers (according to the signs in the grounds of the Castle). On Friday I was […]

  • Sunrise over River Nore – 2/Project52

    Sunrise over River Nore – 2/Project52

    Second week of my Project52 was a bit more difficult with the weather not cooperating. Dull overcast days are tricky to shoot as the colours are not as vibrant as when the sun is peeking through the clouds. The photo below was taken about 20 minutes after sunrise last Tuesday morning, as the sun rose […]

  • Photo of the Week – Fog in Kilkenny

    Photo of the Week – Fog in Kilkenny

    November is always a good time for getting photos with early morning mist and fog. This can create some lovely effects when the sun is rising as the light breaks through the fog and starts adding color to the landscape. I went out and about this week, early in the morning to capture some shots […]

  • Photo of the Week – Mount Juliet House, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland

    Photo of the Week – Mount Juliet House, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland

    I was testing out a nice Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM Lens and with the weather being so nice I decided to try a shot I had taken many times before – Mount Juliet House, Co. Kilkenny. The day was bright, horses out in the paddocks, and the sun wasn’t too high resulting in […]

  • HDR, 7 Minute Exposure at Granny Castle – Photo of the Week

    HDR, 7 Minute Exposure at Granny Castle – Photo of the Week

    I recently got a cable release for the Canon D450 and it has opened a new world of Bulb exposures. Before this my longest exposure (without using stacking software) would have been 30 seconds. Now I am doing 10 minute exposures and thinking nothing of it. This weeks photo of the week is one I […]

  • On the Way to Work – Horses at Play

    On the Way to Work – Horses at Play

    On my way to work one morning, I spotted the morning mist was creeping along the River Nore at Mount Juliet. At the same time I spotted 3 playful foals in the paddocks. Luckily, I had the camera in the bag and spent a few minutes at the fence taking a few shots. I didn’t […]
