New year’s day 2023. It had been a while since I’d spent a bit of time on a landscape shot, and even longer since I’d taken and assembled a 360 image, so I popped up to our local graveyard and made some images. These were shot with a Canon 5DSR as 2-stop bracketed exposures and…
I’m just back from an amazing week in Venice. I mean, the week itself was probably unremarkable, in the life of Venice, but the place is amazing. Quite unique, as far as I know. From the moment we landed at Venice airport, to the moment we landed back in Dublin, roads, cars, traffic, motorbikes, bicycles,…
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.
Weekend at the beach
I always look forward to Easter. It’s the first chance we get every year to spend some time at the beach. This year, it was absolutely freezing and at times, stormier than Donald Trump’s mistress. Here’s how it looked, over the course of 5 days.
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.
Waiting in the dark
These cold winter nights are taking chunks out of my day. It’s too icy to take the bike, so the car/traffic alternative has me up earlier and home later. The slight up-side to that is that I’ve some time to kill, waiting for traffic to ease in the evenings before I leave Sandymount.
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…
Golf, if you can call it that.
The Angeline Meehan Golf Classic has been an Irish International tradition since before I joined the company. It’s a bit of craic. A company day out on the golf course, or alternatively, a walk around Howth head, followed by drinks and dinner, and more drinks. The day out is a very important part of my…
No doubt there are more beautiful places on earth, but on days like this, with company like this, I can’t think of any.
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…
Dublin Castle off Dame Street, Dublin, Ireland, was until 1922 the seat of the UK government’s administration in Ireland, and is now a major Irish government complex. Most of it dates from the 18th century, though a castle has stood on the site since the days of King John, the first Lord of Ireland. The…
