High Rock

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 … Continue reading High Rock

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 … Continue reading Golf, if you can call it that.

Happy Days

No doubt there are more beautiful places on earth, but on days like this, with company like this, I can't think of any.

Comfortably numb

Hello, is there anybody out there? Today on Sandymount strand.

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.

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 … Continue reading A lucky find

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 … Continue reading Seen unseen

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 … Continue reading Point to Point

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 … Continue reading Origin Green – Cardboard : Bord Bia

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!

The white, white grass of home

I love living in Meath, with the countryside all around me. Yes. There are considerable advantages to living close to work, but none that outweigh the opportunity to walk five minutes from home and be completely alone with miles of empty fields to wander. I think the dogs would agree. Here's a few shots from … Continue reading The white, white grass of home

Elusive sunset

Last tuesday evening, I was sitting in the kitchen at about 9.15pm when I noticed that the garden was pink. Moving closer to the window, I could see the incredible sky that was casting the warm tones. I thought to myself what a shame it was I hadn't gone out with my camera earlier. Then … Continue reading Elusive sunset

Doggie holiday

Last weekend (August bank holiday) we managed to get down to Clogherhead for the first time in nearly two months. We gorged on lovely long beach walks. The weather was a mixed lot, but there were plenty of nice bits and the three woof'n'ears had a brilliant time.    

My lens has gotten too fat

Went out last Sunday night and took a few shots in a field on the outskirts of Ratoath village. It's the first time I've tried to use my ND filters on a full-frame camera. Turns out, the angle of view through my 20mm lens is now too wide for the Cokin Series P holder and … Continue reading My lens has gotten too fat

Out in the wild moo yonder

Off we went, quite unexpectedly on saturday evening, to see a man about a beard. My wife, who's an artist, is doing a mural and needed a model for a 'High-King' character. A friend knew a farmer who fitted the long-bearded bill, so off we traipsed through endless lovely fields in the depths of Meath, … Continue reading Out in the wild moo yonder
