Beam me up

I like bikes and I like photography. Luckily, you can do both together. Here's a timelapse of my commute on Feb 5th 2018, shot with a GoPro Hero 5.

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 … Continue reading Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

Dancin’ in the moonlight

Another rock'n'roll saturday night - out late and ending with me stumbling around in the dark in a field in the middle of nowhere. Reminds me of the good old days 😉 These were taken at about 1am last night just outside Ratoath. They're taken with a Canon 6D, 20mm f2.8 lens set to f7.1, … Continue reading Dancin’ in the moonlight

Calm before the storm

Last night was a beautiful clear evening, after a very unsettled day. I popped out for a relaxing walk at sundown and took some lovely peaceful long-exposure shots on the rocks, near Clogherhead. All is calm, all is bright. Today, we went back up that way when the tide was in again. The wind was … Continue reading Calm before the storm

If you are interested in purchasing prints or usage rights for any of these shots, I'd be happy … Continue reading Time to shine

Searching for Northern Lights

The radio on saturday said there was a strong chance of the Northern Lights being visible over Ireland. So I was keeping an eye out the window. There wasn't much to see, and it was impossible to pick anything out, from all the light spilling out of sitting rooms and streetlights, but some of the … Continue reading Searching for Northern Lights

One way ticket to darkness

Hanging out with the Irish Trader wreck, as the sun goes down could become a bit of a regular thing for me. When the tide's out, there's a beautiful, serene atmosphere down there. Only downside is, by the time it gets too dark to photograph, it's also too dark to find your way home. Some … Continue reading One way ticket to darkness

Behind the dunes

What an amazing evening we had last night! Myself and Mimi and Pippa were out on the beach from about 7.30-10pm and it was absolute heaven. The sand was soft, and the sea was warm, but all the colour of the fantastic sunset was hiding behind the sand dunes.
