  • Waterford by Night – Blast from the Past

    Waterford by Night – Blast from the Past

    I was recently going through some photos and I found a shot taken from the now closed Ardree Hotel in 2005, Waterford by Night. It was my first long exposure and without a tripod I managed to take this 4 second exposure with a Fuji S7000. In 2008 I entered the Imagine Arts Festival Photography […]

    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 […]

Having checked the StarWalk app on the iPhone it seemed that […]

    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 […]

    International Space Station Pictured over new Waterford Bridge

    I was hoping the International Space Station would track directly over the new Waterford Bridge and had set up my camera at around 10pm with the ISS pass scheduled for 10:05pm over Waterford. I could see the ISS coming and took 2 quick shots of the bridge to check focus and light levels. Unfortunately as […]

    I took a few night shots in Singapore recently and remembered some tips which Canon Cameras had in one of their presentations regarding the taking of night shots. I came up with the following shot of Singapore by Night. The shot was taken around 10pm from the 22nd floor of the Fairmont Singapore Hotel. In […]
