Doneraile Photowalkers

Doneraile Photowalkers

I had a busy day today. This morning I became aware that hackers had started using WordPress blogs they had previously hacked to redirect search engine queries. So I spent this morning working on a post about that hacking issue. No wonder we were late for the photowalk this afternoon.

Shown above are almost all the photowalkers. My wife isn’t included as she was in the car, but from left to right, here are the rest: Andrew, Katie, Kevin, Will, me (Donncha), and my son Adam. Adam didn’t take any photos but he was an integral part of the day! Thank you all for coming along. It was nice to see the same faces again. I’m never sure about landscape shots but I shot a few nice ones. Got plenty of deer shots too! Just before we got back to the car it started to rain lightly, and by the time we got home to Blarney the rain was bucketing down. Looks like we got the best of the day!

Shot was taken in Program mode, with fill in flash of +2EV to illuminate the wide angle view of the lens.

Aperture ƒ/5.6
Camera Canon EOS 20D
Focal length 12mm
ISO 100
Shutter speed 1/80s

    I have to admit I’m still tired after it. My legs feel weak from all the walking. Yes, I’m not fit or athletic.

    Ironically, my brother Donal swam, cycled and ran a triathlon in Schull on Saturday.

    Thanks again for organising the walk Donncha, I really enjoyed it. It’s a great location and I’ll probably venture back there again when autumn rolls around. Hopefully I’ll post some photos this evening – looking forward to seeing everyone elses take on it as well.

    Sorry I couldn’t make it. See a few photos on flickr and the place looks stunning. I will be back in Cork over the summer and will definitely make a trip there.

    I think your landscape shots are great – I bought one, so they must be good! Just bought a new camera, so I’m looking to revive my hobby soon. Work keeps getting in the way, bah!

    […] funny thing is, these photos were all taken in brilliant sunshine. You see, while the other Doneraile Walkers were content to stay on the sunlit path, I was entranced by the path less trodden (or at least […]

    Wish I had time to organise one or take part in one. Must look at the calendar but I think August is pretty busy for me 🙁

    I’m slowly posting the photos from my blog here. Only 8 pages of photos left!
