There's a unique atmosphere about the city at night - a heightened, more focused and intimate experience. For their second year of sponsoring the Virgin Media Night Run, we wanted to evoke this feeling, coupled with the adrenaline rush of participating and competing in one of the most exciting sporting events of the year. The … Continue reading The Virgin Media Night Run
I'm delighted to see that support for 360 and VR images has now been added to wordpress.com. I can now integrate my 360 images with the rest of my work. Here's a couple of images I made last Saturday (10th Dec 2016) on Sir John Rogersons Quay in Dublin, Ireland. Click on one of the … Continue reading Hello to VR support on WordPress.com
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 … Continue reading Parklife
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.
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 … Continue reading East of Eden
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.
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.
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 … Continue reading Indian summer
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.
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!
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
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.
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
You can't beat a sunset walk on the beach. Generally, you get the whole place to yourself. You're getting exercise and fresh air, there's a soothing soundtrack of gently lapping waves, the dogs are having the craic - and of course, there's a pretty spectacular 360 degree view. Don't think I'll ever tire of it. … Continue reading Lovely beach evenings
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
