Post's featued image.

Having done some work on the Lake Matheson at Fox Glacier photo (see older post here) , I have finally retrieved the type of shot I was hoping for.

I might upload the sunset shots from Lake Matheson on Flickr later in the week.

Milford Sound was judged as one […]

Jan 14 2011

This week the Photo of the Week is a bit more local. Only 15 minute drive from Waterford, Tramore’s Back Strand is a great place to enjoy a walk and if you have the camera, you can get some good shots too. Photo topics at low tide include wading birds which can be seen searching for food, and in windy weather surfers enjoy the epic waves. This weeks Photo of the Week is a simple shot of the Sandhills and a reflection which I liked due to the colours. Back Strand – Tramore, Co. Waterford
