Minus one, plus one

There are some things we do well in Meath, and fog is one of them. I was out for a few hours earlier, and it was bloody cold. Got home, lit the fire and made a big dinner of steak and roasties and I was about to sit down and get cozy when I looked out…

Parklife

I wandered up to the top of Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre car park on Saturday afternoon, to see what I could see. I had nowhere better to be, so decided to stick around for an hour or so to catch the sundown. It was beautiful, and a little surreal. Although I didn’t record many people…

Costa deLouth

Some shots taken while on holidays in Port Oriel, August 2016. It’s incredible how quickly the weather pivots – it now feels like a proper autumn, and these balmy evenings are long gone.

Seen unseen

Here’s a couple of short timelapse videos I shot today. Just tests really. I was experimenting with long exposure shots using neutral density filters to cut down the light. In this first one outside the office, I shot a sequence of 6 second exposures at 8 second intervals. Watch it in 4K full resolution. After…

East of Eden

Can’t complain about the weather. Really. It’s been pretty rainy these past few days, but it’s warm rain, so that’s not so bad. We have had some gorgeous days and nights this summer so far. Here’s a few shots I took a few weeks back (may 26th). In the summer, you have to be working pretty…

Trinity after hours

Passing through Trinity college last night around 6.30pm, I got a few nice shots. There’s a fair bit of light in the sky over the city and the longish exposures give a nice smudgy effect to the clouds as well as helping to make passing people invisible.

Early bus

The forecast has been promising snow this week, but it hasn’t yet materialised in my part of the world. I’ve left the bike in the garage and taken the bus and dart to work instead. Each morning I get up, look out the window and see that it’d probably be fine on the bike, but…

The em, spire strikes back

Some of you may have heard by now, there’s a new film out called ‘Star Wars’. 😉 It may not be perfect, but I really enjoyed it, and I can’t remember another film that everyone in my family enjoyed as much. To celebrate the launch, the Spire on O’Connell Street in Dublin has been lit…

Letting the traffic go by

Here’s a few shots taken on Sandymount beach back in early November. With rush-hour in full effect on the coast road, I waited it out on the beach.

Just your average Irish day

  Here’s how half an hour in Stephen’s Green in Dublin looked today. Summer, autumn, winter. Probably a touch of spring in there too.

Indian summer

  I reckon the seasons have slid by a few months. Winter is now Jan/Feb/Mar. Right now, we’re enjoying a mild autumn. Today was a t-shirt kinda day and the only thing wintery about it was the early onset of darkness. Perfect for nipping over to the strand after work and capturing a few evening…

Peace and quiet in the city centre

I had half an hour to kill in Stephen’s Green on saturday. It was a beautiful day and, as you’d expect, the green was jammed full of people hanging out and strolling about. I just about had time to take a few long exposure shots, and a quick timelapse. Next time, I think I’ll spend…

If you go down to the woods today…

… it probably won’t look like this. 😉 Here’s a couple of Infrared shot taken today in the woods near Beaulieu House in County Louth. And here’s the same woods in normal light.

Today’s ‘trip’ to the park

It was a pretty dull day today, and Dublin wasn’t looking it’s most photogenic. To liven it up a bit, I popped an infrared filter in front of the camera and this is what I got, in a few locations in Stephen’s Green, around lunchtime today. These things need very long exposures, so there’s the…

Sundown at High Rock

I was heading home from my folks place in Portmarnock on thursday evening. Stopped off at a spot known locally as ‘High Rock’, on the coast road to Malahide and took a few shots on the way. Gorgeous evening!
