Evening after the storm

The evening after the storm

Ireland has been lashed with some severe winds and storms over the last 2 weeks. There’s destruction in many locations around the coast and inland too but sometimes the storm abates and the sun shines between the clouds.

Sunset over Cork City

Sunset over Cork City

The sun sets over Cork City as seen from Mayfield yesterday evening. Love the colour of the sun shining on the underside of the cloud!

Shandon Bells from Afar

Shandon Bells from Afar

The steeple of St. Anne’s Church towers over the surrounding streets as seen from Coburg Street, Cork last night. I laboured over this photo. I could not get the shade and colour of the houses in the middle-background right for quite a while. Sometimes it was too bright, or too blue, or too dark, or […]

Crosshaven Evening

Crosshaven Evening

Yesterday evening in Crosshaven, Co Cork. It was a beautiful end of the day. Not quite as hot as other days which I was thankful for but many people out and a good atmosphere in the town. Edit: here’s the original photo!

Boats in Cobh

Boats in Cobh

Some of the boats that have taken up semi-permanent residence in Cobh pictured in 2006. I think some of those boats are still there! That was a beautiful but cold January evening. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/500s

Beautiful Evening in San Diego

Just a beautiful evening in San Diego

I arrived in San Diego a few hours ago and the first thing I noticed when I got into my hotel room was the amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. This doesn’t do it justice as the foreground is a little too dark but I wanted to get it uploaded with minimum fuss so here […]

Sunset Chimneys

Sunset Chimneys

Chimney stacks loom over the town of Clonakilty in County Cork in November last year. PS. happy new year! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 88mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/1000s

Saint Finbarres Sunset

Saint Finbarre’s Sunset

St Finbarre’s Cathedral silhouetted against the sunset in Cork yesterday. It was freezing cold but the skies were mostly clear and snow hasn’t fallen in the City or here in Blarney either yet. The country is going through a recession but you wouldn’t know it. After driving around Parnell Place twice I parked in Merchant’s […]

Take off from Quebec Airport

Take off from Quebec Airport

Quebec Airport has all you might need: free wifi, free power at some seats and even a children’s toy area for the kids to play in! Nice sunset too! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 125mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/60s

Night Over Quebec

Night Over Quebec

Night falls over Quebec as we finish our tour and photowalk around the city. ISO 1600 came in very useful as the sky got darker! Pictured here are a few of the buildings just outside the old city walls. I think the Hilton is the building on the right. Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length […]

Fountainstown Sunset

The beach at Fountainstown in County Cork faces east but in the twilight there’s still a glow in that direction. This was shot with my 50mm lens, really close to the surface of the water there while gentle waves lapped the shoreline. Unfortunately as a result I had set the focus point so the water […]

county hall sunset

County Hall Sunset

The sun sets behind the County Hall in Cork. Taken from near Fitzgerald’s Park a few weeks ago on a glorious weekend evening. PS. My first photo from the parade last week was published on outsidein on Saturday! Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 88mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/320s

sunset-glow-at-doneraile-park

Sunset Glow at Doneraile Park

The setting sun cast a beautiful glow on the trees near Doneraile House in Doneraile Park in November 2006. That was a cold day, wind blew through us despite the warm coats we wore. My wife was pregnant at the time and we were in the park with her sister Gerry so it’s a memorable […]

breckenridge-sunset

Breckenridge Sunset

The sun sets early in Breckenridge Colorado, well slightly earlier than in Ireland anyway. Myself and Anthony were working on one part of our secret project, and Mike Adams was working on the other bit, when Michael Koenig jumped up and went outside on to the balcony. I looked up and saw gorgeous red clouds […]
