    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 […]

    Tramore Dog Surfing – Yes, Dog Surfing!

    On Sunday September 1st, Tramore saw a spectacle which I had not seen in Ireland before, Dog Surfing…. Yes, surfing for Dogs. Some of the dogs didn’t seem to like the idea and once on the surf boards decided to abandon ship and swim to shore, while others took to it like a duck dog […]

    Experimenting with ND Filters and Long Exposures

    Having recently purchased some ND filters I had being longing to try them out for quite some time. I decided to try the seascape at sunset style with the waves crashing across the rocks. The waves become misty and it looks quite nice but I had never tried this before. I am going to outline […]

    Making the Most of the Blue Hour in Waterford

    Tonight I decided to put the camera in the car and drive around and see what presented itself. Around 9pm the darkness was starting to become apparent and I chanced checking what time the International Space Station would be heading over Waterford. Thanks to the Twisst service on Twitter 21:10pm was listed and I made […]

    Halfway through the Project 52 challenge and it has been very hard these past few weeks to get any decent shoots in the evenings – the weather this year has been deplorable and this week was no exception. I nearly didn’t bring the camera on this day but I spotted some chicks in the cliff […]

    On the way home from Kilkenny one evening I spotted the full moon high in the sky, and as I approached the new N25 toll bridge at Waterford I wondered if the 2 would be in the same shot. I decided to go down as far as the old Waterford – Carrick road, now a […]
