Waves about to crash down on the nearby rocks at Couminole Beach on Slea Head, Co. Kerry.
Originally this was in colour but it lacked punch. Converting it to black and white and slightly overexposing the blue channel created this dramatic scene.
Shadows from unseen clouds leave their mark on the ground telling of their passage through the heavens.
Shot on Wine Strand, Co. Kerry, looking across the bay.
Tough grass that’s lovely and springy to walk on edge to the horizon where a cloud floats serenely in the blue sky. Life is good!
This is taken close to this photo of the same slope but the mood is completely different.
An old fence follows the road off into the distance at Wine Strand in the Dingle Peninsular, Co. Kerry.
Lines, lines everywhere, I love lines!
The tough grass by a beach in Kerry grows thick on this hill, bounded by a wire fence to keep curious people like myself at bay!
This is an experiment for me. I thought the b/w treatment would work well as the image is full of texture, lines and shadow. What do you think? Another similar one to follow tomorrow.
I wanted to take it easy tonight. It’s been a long week but here I am still. 16 photos worked on in the GIMP and ready to upload. You’re in for a treat next week with some of my shots from Kerry, even if I do say so myself!
The Irish Flag, or Tricolour hangs outside the Muskerry Arms Pub in Blarney. More here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Ireland
The beautiful weather recently provided a perfect opportunity to shoot outside. Yay!
If you use the built-in flash on your camera you’re probably used to the ugly effect direct light has on portraits and scenes: red eye, background shadows and foreground brightness, lost blown out detail. You can avoid all that by buying an external flash and bouncing or you can build a flash diffuser to sit in front of your camera.
Looks like a fun project to try too!
