    SuperMoon Shot with New 70-300 Lens

    My Canon 70-300 lens got a battering over the past few years (I had it over 6 years) so I invested in a brand new 70-300. The latest version of this zoom lens has IS and 2 auto-focus modes. The zoom is incredible and I have taken some great shots of aircraft at 36,000ft, on […]

    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 […]
