A lucky find

I was out for a stroll with the dogs last night when I happened upon the Clogherhead RNLI crew coming back from what looked to be a training exercise. It was fascinating to watch the elaborate, time-consuming and precisely timed process of getting the boat out of the water. It was a real treat, and…

Booyah!

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…

Point to Point

I got the new(ish) 103X bus in this morning. It comes into town through the port tunnel, so I hopped out at the Point Depot and walked up to work via the East Link. Nice day for a stroll – a long enough walk that I could almost call it exercise, and I took a…

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…

Right place, right time

Today’s started well. It may not keep it up, but it was pretty fab out there this morning and I was lucky enough to have time for a walk on Sandymount beach. According to my phone, it’s 13 degrees at the moment, and it definitely feels more summery than wintery. Carpe diem.

Great South Wall

I’m not getting many opportunities at the moment to get out and take photos, but I have managed to pop down a couple of times to the South Wall, cos it’s near work and on my way. There a small, but nice little beach along the road to the wall, and it’s a nice walk…

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.

Sandy selection

Here’s a mix of shots and a couple of timelapse videos taken on Sandymount beach over the course of a few lunchtimes in the past few weeks.

Origin Green – Cardboard : Bord Bia

At this year’s Expo world fair in Milan the theme was “feeding the planet, energy for life”. Ireland’s Pavilion celebrated Origin Green, Ireland’s world-leading sustainable food movement. We helped create all kinds of interesting material, including this simple, cost-effective and unputdownable Google Cardboard piece, which transported thousands of users from the parched earth of Milan…

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…

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.

Trespassing in twilight

Lately I’ve been stealing time before work to take the dogs up to the fields for a run around. Them, not me. It’s about all I can manage, being awake and walking. Running would be asking too much. The grass is long enough to lose a dog and takes a bit of effort to lift…

Private viewing

Took the dogs up for a walk in Balrath Woods a week or so ago. It was about 5pm on a Sunday afternoon and normally there’d be a good few people wandering around there. Not this time. Just Mimi, Pippa and Rosa. And me. And the trees.
