Bealach Na Ba

May 13, 2012 Landscape, People, Scotland, Video, X100

HD on Vimeo Bealach Na Ba, once the only road into the remote western shores town of Applecross. Now a ‘must ride’ road for those that prefer the two wheeled mode of transport. Think of the road like any country road around Wicklow, except on steroids. Oh and with a perfect surface. Oh and with no cow/sheep/pig shit in the middle of the road just as you carve through a bend at speed. Oh and… You get the idea. I’llRead More

Day 5; Route Des Cretes

October 11, 2011 France, Landscape, People, X100

After getting out of the road works mess that was Dijon (twice – long story), I decided to give the scenic route a miss in favour of getting to the mountains early in the day. So it was a couple of hours on the motorway instead. I’d never been this far east in France before and it was starting to feel more and more like Germany with every passing mile. German, Belgian and Austrian cars, trucks and motor homes outnumberedRead More

June 20, 2011 Landscape, Panasonic LX-3, UK

One of what I’m going to call ‘the limited run’ of photographs that was taken over the weekend in Snowdonia. This was on the way back to the ferry, a little diversion that had us stop at a viewpoint that appeared to be quite popular. Snowdon is just to the right of this scene, the peak hidden by the cloud. With the tight timescale we were working with we didn’t get to see a lot of Snowdonia but as IRead More

Brightness on the Horizon

December 31, 2010 Canon 5D, Landscape, Scotland

Monsters are vanquished, beaten by a brave knight. Lots on the horizon but can’t quite make it out yet. Onward and upward? Maybe. Time and travel will tell. Happy 2011.

Right Shape

Scotland. Can I go back now please?

Eilean Donan

October 27, 2010 Landscape, Scotland

On our way out to Skye. Possibly my only shot without a tourist in it.

The Lakes

October 18, 2010 Canon 5D, Event, Landscape, Wicklow

Out and about again on the helicopter thanks to John Nugent at Newcastle Aerodrome. Much brighter and clearer up there this time, as you’ll find out over the coming days…

The Lakes

January 7, 2010 Canon 50, Canon 5D, Kerry, Landscape

Nearly a year ago on the way from Kenmare to Killarney. Don’t get down here that often now, it’s a bit more of a hike from Dublin than it was from Cork.

Swans of the Apocalypse

Earlier this year at one of the lakes of Killarney. Shot at Ross Castle.

Landmark

Kinda back where I started, nice landscapes catching my eye and the first from the film that I will get printed over the coming week or so. Driving back towards Dublin after a day around the Wicklow and Sally gap. Really love that Ilford Pan F 50 iso film too. Going to have to stock up on that! On a related note to the title of the image, today marks one year since I posted the first photo on glasseyRead More

The Gap

April 11, 2009 Black and White, Film, Kerry, Landscape

Driving through the Gap of Dunloe in Kerry. This time with a camera and with the inclination to take photos. Last time, not so much. There was a heavy mist lying low on the hills so the black and whites possibly look a bit dull and grey. The velvia should be interesting though. The place was crazy colourful.

Seasons Changing

November 11, 2008 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Landscape, Wicklow

Further evidence, as if the cold and darker evenings weren’t proof enough, that the seasons are changing. Depths of winter are closing in fast and hey, there are only (insert ever decreasing number here) more shopping days left until Christmas! We were last along this road when everything was lush and green and it’s fantastic to see it again in various shades of browns, coppers and golds. If you’re in the area, I’d strongly suggest a drive down there.

Valentia

September 19, 2008 Canon 24-70, Canon 30D, Kerry, Landscape

Valentia Island in county Kerry. Was there back in August 2007 after being invited down by a boards member who is also a regular visitor to the island. I can see why. Need to get down there again soon. Having spent the last few hours cleaning up my lightroom catalog, I dug into the archives for this one. It’s here both in anticipation of an upcoming trip to Kerry (first in a long time) and to remind Danny that we’reRead More
