    The Vicar of Dibley : 22/Project 52

    This weeks post has 3 photos you might recognize – it’s the location used in the filming of the hit BBC show, “The Vicar of Dibley”. The location isĀ in the middle of nowhere, only for SatNav we would never had found the right roads to take, some only the sixth of one car. It is […]

  • Woodstown Beach, Co. Waterford – Sunset : 19/Project52

    Woodstown Beach, Co. Waterford – Sunset : 19/Project52

    Eventually got the camera out and with some nice weather over the weekend I saw this during a walk on Woodstown beach as the sun was setting. I liked the reflection of the sun on the wet sand. The tide had made the sand quite reflective and I just liked the overall effect. Not the […]

  • Last of the Spring Flowers : 15/Project 52

    Last of the Spring Flowers : 15/Project 52

    All this week I had made multiple attempts at taking a nice shot of a field of rapeseed against quite a vivid skyline, but every time I tried something in the shot just wasn’t working. In the end I decided to try something on a smaller scale, that was the last of the spring flowers. […]

    Hook Head, Co. Wexford, Sun Beams – 3/Project 52

    A few days ago I took a photo at Hook Head which I liked. I hadn’t planned on using it for this weeks Project 52 photo, but having gone out tonight to take some night shots, I found that the clear skies had clouded over !! The weather for photography at the moment is dire […]

  • 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 […]

    Playing with Fire – Photo of the Week

    Recently we had a Carrick Camera Club shoot on Annestown Beach, and one of the shots involved lighting steel wool and doing some fast revolutions of the item while at the same time having the camera setup on long exposure. I was using Bulb, averaging 50 to 80 seconds and one of the results is […]

  • My First Fox Photo – Photo of the Week

    My First Fox Photo – Photo of the Week

    I have always been fascinated by how covert foxes can be, I once came across one in Manor Street in Waterford at 2am one night on the way home from a night out (no camera of course), but had not seen one up close since then. Having picked up a loan of 200mm Canon L […]
