Oscar on the beach again!

This photo of Oscar was taken in 2007 at Garrettstown Beach where Oscar loved to chase tennis balls. We always thought he was middle aged back then and nowadays he doesn’t do much running around at all. It’s hard to believe that was seven years ago! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 144mm […]

Braving Warm Waters at Seaside

Seaside, the town where The Truman Show was filmed is in Florida. Automattic held a Grand Meetup there in 2010. It was so warm and humid during the day that I rarely went out. We went for a photowalk at 7:30am one morning before the heat got unbearable. By the time we finished an hour […]

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Sunrise in Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca lies on the southern coast of the island of Lanzarote. It’s a beautiful town, built entirely with tourism in mind. Sunrise wasn’t what I had hoped it would be. The sun is blocked by the new Rubicon Marina (it’s so new that Google Maps thought we were swimming in the sea when we […]

The waves of Santa Cruz

The waves of Santa Cruz

Waves crash on the beach in front of the hotel in Santa Cruz where Automattic recently held a company meetup.

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

This was the view from my hotel room at The Dream Inn, Santa Cruz last week. Seems like a million miles away now, but in fact it’s only about, oh, maybe six thousand miles. Anyway, I was there with the almost all of Automattic for our annual meetup. It’s a fabulous location, the early morning […]

Everyone in for a swim

Everyone in for a swim!

We spent this evening at Garrettstown Beach. Wow, what a day. First time swimming in the sea in several years. IT WAS COLD! I’d forgotten just how cold the Atlantic can be. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 24mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Fountainstown Beach in April

Fountainstown Beach in April

Who wouldn’t go to the beach on a blustery, showery day? A cold wind blew off the land on to Fountainstown Beach and the sky would change as quickly as anything. Such happened here when the sun peeked through the clouds for a few moments and we were suddenly sweltering. It didn’t take long before […]

Harry the Westi

Harry the Westi

Harry, a west highland terrier, ran through the waves at Dunworley Beach yesterday. We met his owners, John and Julie, on the beach and our dog Oscar and Harry had a great time playing together! John and Julie are also run Dillon’s Restaurant in Timoleague. Hopefully next time we’re down that direction we can pop […]

Waves Crash

Waves Crash

Waves crash into the sea wall at Garrettstown Beach, Co Cork a few weeks ago. Beautiful day for a trip down there and the wind blew the sea into violent waves pounding the man made obstructions on shore. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/400s

football on the beach

Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 144mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Magic Water

Water laps the shore at Fountainstown Beach on a crisp September evening.

Bubbling Water

Bubbling Water

Water flows down to the beach at Fountainstown, bubbling as it goes over rocks and seaweed. PS. I’ve reduced the cost of all prints by about $50 to $80 for the largest size framed prints. Most of the cost goes towards manufacturing and my markup is only 20% on all prints. Check ‘em out in […]

Wet, shiny stones

Wet, shiny stones

The outgoing tide on Fountainstown Beach leaves behind wet stones and seaweed as it retreats. This is a long exposure shot of one second with my camera resting on one of those rocks! By the time you read this I’ll be on a plane, in the air most likely, or waiting for a connection in […]
