  • Notre-Dame Basilica, Place d’Armes, Montreal

    Notre-Dame Basilica, Place d’Armes, Montreal

    The Notre-Dame Basilica, is located in Place d’Armes, Montreal, opposite where the photo of the Maisonneuve Monument was taken. Again the area was swarming with tourists so I opted for a long exposure. The shot was taken with the same wide angle Tamron 10-24mm lens. The result, Notre-Dame Basilica, is shown below. The photo is […]

    Montreal Street View – 32/Project52

    Street Photography is something I have being trying to do some more of recently and this next shot is a photo from Montreal which I really like because of the lighting and the way the sun hits the buildings. The sun was setting and the sky still had a bit of interest. There were also […]

  • 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. […]

    Moonshot – 9/Project 52

    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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • International Space Station Pictured over new Waterford Bridge

    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 […]
