The Lough

That bread is mine!

That bread is mine! A heron swoops in on a bunch of greedy gulls at The Lough yesterday! For more pictures, check out Katie’s set and Will’s photos! In retrospect, we were very lucky with the weather for the photowalk. Just after I got home the downpour started and 60mph winds ravaged the south of […]

Light reflects on the Lough Light trails from passing cars and street lights reflect on the calm surface of the Lough in Cork in this long exposure shot.

Clouds over the Lough

Clouds over the Lough Clouds gather and block out the sun over the Lough in Cork last year. The display was beautiful as light wispy clouds and dark brooding rain clouds skirted across the sky. The sun made one final effort to shine, but the clouds won out and it started to rain moments later.

The lonely swan

The lonely swan A solitary swan swims on the calm waters of The Lough as the sun disappears at the end of the day. Believe it or not, this is a 10 second exposure that turned out much better than I could have hoped! I balanced my camera on the edge of the Lough, set […]

The swans they are a coming

The swans they are a coming Swans rush to the bank of the Lough looking for bread from the crazy guy hanging over the water with a large black object… This shows off one of my favourite night-time techniques. Long exposure with a flash. The long exposure captures the background while the flash illuminates the […]

Swan and Young

A mother swan and her young offspring. There was a lovely sunset causing a deep red reflection in the water. The mother swan was very protective and aggressive and reared up and spat at me a moment after I took this shot! Edit: This photo is hosted on Zoomr! Thomas Hawk is appealing to the […]

The Swan Gang

The Swan Gang Tough looking swans gather for bread at the Lough in Cork for bread. The problem with shooting dangerous wildlife with a wideangle lens is that unless you stick the camera in their faces nobody will believe you were risking life and limb by leaning down right next to them when shooting. Well, […]
