Alcatraz Staircase A lonely staircase on Alcatraz is off-limtis to tourists but not to the eye of my camera.
Cobh at sunset The tide is out in Cobh, Co. Cork while the sun sets in the west casting an orange glow over the water and boats in the harbour. Method This required some work to expose properly. The sky is bright while the harbour, houses and landscape are in shadow. Out with the layers, […]
