Watch out! Duck! I said, “duck!”

Geese at The Lough feeding on the ground near the water’s edge. Most have their heads down pecking at scraps but one stubbornly kept a look out ..

Chetwynd Viaduct

Chetwynd Viaduct From the Air

I always the this bridge as “The Viaduct”, but it’s actually named the Chetwynd Viaduct. Here’s the view from a my flight home a few weeks as it came in to land at Cork Airport. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/100s

I’m Still Standing

It’s wonderful how some of the old buildings in Cork are preserved while all around them their neighbours are demolished and shiny new edifices rise. This one is of course on Emmett Place.

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 […]

Easy way up

Easy way up

The easy way up to the Montmorency Falls is by cable car direct from the visitor center. We took the steps. Legs. Sore. (Great coming down though!) Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/640s

Red Red Rose

Red roses in my father-in-law’s garden, I think. This was shot way back in August but I’m fairly sure of the location. Aperture ƒ/1.8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 50mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/1000s

Birds eye view of Montmorency Falls

Bird’s eye view of Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls in Quebec, as seen from the top of the nearby hill. Lots of steps to walk up! PS. In unrelated news, I received the following email from Siobhán Duggan: Hi Donncha, while doing some research on the lough recently I came across your blog regarding a Lough Photography day you organised last year.

Cross in the Roof

Cross in the Roof

Another (and final) shot of the roof in the Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré in Quebec, Canada. I will post more from this church but this is the final shot of the main roof. Love the intricate design. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 2.5s

Look up at the roof

The ceiling of the Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré in Quebec is quite a sight. In a low light situation you can’t get a more stable support than the floor at your feet, lucky me. A wide angle lens meant I had to run for cover lest the camera capture me in the image. The 2 second […]

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

Sanctuaire de Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré

The Saint Anne-de-Beaupré Basilica in Quebec is an imposing but beautiful building. It’s surrounded by flat river side countryside and low lying buildings so it really stands out. Got lots more photos from inside, hopefully to be posted over the next few days. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter […]

Steps to Montmorency Falls

Steps to Montmorency Falls

If you’re adventurous or just have strong legs you can climb the many steps to the top of the hill overlooking the Montmorency Falls. I climbed the steps with a few of the other Automattic guys and took in the breathtaking view over the St. Lawrence River up to Quebec City. Add to that the […]

Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls

You’ll find Montmorency Falls just outside Quebec City in Canada. They’re an imposing sight, visible from the highway and by foot you can almost reach the base of the falls. Bring a coat and protect your camera because you’ll be soaked by spray! Remember that Balloon Boy story last week? People have been searching for […]
