We spent a week in Sicily at the start of November – mainly in Palermo, with a couple of day trips to Agrigento and Cefalú. The weather was nice and the crowds a little lighter, so it was a great time to visit this beautiful Italian island. As is customary on our trips, a lot…
We went to Rome at the start of September 2022. It was still pretty much in peak tourist season and the weather was reaching close to 35 degrees, especially on the day we took an express train down to visit Pompeii. The crowds inside the Vatican made it feel like 45 degrees. We always enjoy…
Some shots taken on the winter solstice 2018, Ratoath, Co. Meath. Exposure-merged HDR images, processed in split-tone.
We’re getting close now, to the darkest day of the year. I’ll be happy to be on the other side and heading towards daylight. In the meantime, it’s handy to be able to capture a few nice sunrises at the leisurely time of 8:45am.
Evening in Sandymount
A few recent shots from evenings in Sandymount.
Through the looking-glass
I’ve taken plenty of shots of the new incinerator, looking across from Sandymount. Last night (Feb13th 2018), I stopped on the way home to snap them from the other side, looking from Grand Canal Dock. I picked up a few other shots around there too.
I was passing through Portmarnock yesterday. The place where I grew up. On the way, I stopped on the coast road to Malahide and took a few photos at High Rock. It was quiet, being morning time, and a working day. During the 20 minutes that I was there, the weather changed from idyllic summer…
No doubt there are more beautiful places on earth, but on days like this, with company like this, I can’t think of any.
The Virgin Media Night Run
There’s a unique atmosphere about the city at night – a heightened, more focused and intimate experience. For their second year of sponsoring the Virgin Media Night Run, we wanted to evoke this feeling, coupled with the adrenaline rush of participating and competing in one of the most exciting sporting events of the year. The…
Dublin goes green
Paddy’s Day eve. I stopped off at the Convention centre to capture a bit of green white and orange. I thought my bike was looking pretty fetching too, so I took a few snaps of that while I was there.
Bord Gáis Energy Theatre
On the second night of a night shoot last week, I took this at about 12.30am in Grand Canal Square, in front of the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin, Ireland. It’s a bit noisy, because the GoPro currently won’t expose longer than 1/4sec when shooting RAW. Kinda frustrating since it can stay open for…
The Dead Zoo
Looking for something to do in Dublin on Saturday, I popped in to the Natural History Museum for a while. It’s a strange little place, but interesting and worth a visit. There are only two levels currently open to the public – such a shame that the upper levels are out of bounds. Lack of…
St. Teresa’s Church of the Discalced Carmelites
Tucked away behind Grafton Street in the centre of Dublin, this is just one of several beautiful alcoves within the church.
