Water swirls at Myrtleville

Water swirls at Myrtleville

A long exposure photo I took on Thursday night at Myrtleville with Blarney Photography Club. Unfortunately rain closed in after only half an hour or so and we were forced to leave early. Should have brought the umbrella out!

Of sticks and Stones

Just fooling around on the beach at Fennell’s Bay this evening with some long exposure shots of the tide. It’s not something I’d ever done much of and not something I find particularly interesting but I’m always willing to try something new and curious to find out more about it. It’s probably the most relaxing photography you can do, apart from clambering over rocks in an attempt to get at the bigger waves..

I’m glad I remembered the Canon 6D has an optional ISO50 setting. That got me a 1/3 of a second extra exposure before the sun set! :)

Rock Castles

Rock Castles at Sunset

Carefully balanced piles of rocks line the rocky stretch of coastline by Av. Maritima around here in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote.

Thanks Iga for nominating me to post an artistic photo a day for 5 days. I already had posts scheduled but I’ll post an extra one each day anyway! :)

Mullinhassig Waterfall

Mullinhassig Waterfall

Poulanassig Waterfall, incorrectly known as Mullinhassig Waterfall is a small waterfall about 30 minutes drive from Blarney, just beyond Coachford. This was my first visit there but it was simple to find through Google Maps.

This Wikipedia page is full of useful information about the surrounding woods.
