    2012 Photography Year in Review

    With 2012 now over, I am having a look back at the photoblog, my photos during 2012, the blog traffic and what photography blog posts were the most popular during 2012. I got the WordPress email which had some very interesting stats. I have combined this report with some from Google Analytics and the results […]

  • The Vicar of Dibley : 22/Project 52

    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. […]

  • Crows in the Tree Tops at Sunset – 8/Project 52

    Crows in the Tree Tops at Sunset – 8/Project 52

    Last Week I was out and about at or near sunset and I spotted a large number of crows in the trees. When I took the photo they were moving so fast, that even at 1/100 the birds were still showing up as moving blurred images. I like this shot because of the color in […]

    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 […]

    Train Hangs from Red Iron Bridge, Waterford – 6/Project52

    Today I took the camera down to Red Iron Bridge and as I did I was amazed to see a train move slowly down towards the gap in the Red Iron Bridge, I was sure it would stop well before the gap but it kept on coming, until …. Well, that would be an amazing […]

    Some Project 52 Themes for 2012…

    I decided to set some photography themes for the Project 52 which I am doing this year on shanemcdonald.me. I have not set dates against these as I want to be able to use them when ever I find a suitable subject or opportunity. There are 26 photography themes which allows me to use one […]

  • Waterford City in the Early Morning – 5/Project 52

    Waterford City in the Early Morning – 5/Project 52

    This weeks Project 52 photo was quite easy, as it just happened that I had the camera & tripod with me (fairly common these days) and that I was near the bridge in Waterford as the sun was coming up. The sun was nestling behind the clouds which gave a nice ray / beam of […]
