Three Rock and Ticknock Forest

I went up the mountain for a wander this evening, a perfect followup to tea in Malahide with my mum yesterday.

Snapshots from the Wicklow Way

Although by “Wicklow Way” I mostly mean “Cloghnagun” in this case.

Kilgobbin Church and Three Rock, Dublin

Annacrivey Woods

Taken while hiking the Wicklow Way.

Ballycorus Leadmines

Photographed on my hike today. I was surprised when this photograph came out, let alone perfectly, because the wind blew me flat on my ass as I finished the capture.

Perfect and Blue and Empty

The day was too much, so I climbed a hill and decided to be for a while.

Dublin Sunset, February 2017

The grimmest grim view that ever grimmed a grim

Taken from the shore at Blackrock.

Winter tree, winter sky

Taken at Blackrock Park.

Dawn light

The view from our room leads to the production of many beautiful dawn photographs, whatever else you might care to say about it.

Two trees in Knocksink Woods

I sat on these photographs for a week while I agonized about colours and controls. Too much contrast? Too yellow? Too saturated? In the end I decided to present them as-is.

Dawn from Windy Arbour

The last couple of weeks make me feel like my photographic mojo is on its way back.

Rainy Ranelagh

Autumn has arrived in full force. :(

The Irish Sea from Blackrock

I wanked around with some sliders in Photoshop because I liked the net effect.

October at the Digital Hub

Dublin skies, September 2016

Cloud iridescence and lenticular clouds in one day!

Misty morning at the River Dodder

Eadaoin and I caught some gorgeous light on our walk to work.

Bray Head from Bray train station

Cloud forest at Bray Head

On the side of the Sugar Loaf, July 2016

Alanna and I climbed the Great Sugar Loaf last Saturday, then hiked down into Enniskerry. Great afternoon!

Airplane casting its own shadow on the sky

The title, uh, says it all.

Spectacular sunset skies over Dublin

Converging anticrepuscular rays and a forming lenticular cloud photographed from Churchtown, Dublin.

Sligo Bay from the peak of Knocknarea

We climbed up, got lost in a cloud, then climbed right back down. Then we had a seaweed bath which caused me to have a panic attack.

The Killiney Hill obelisk

It’s been four years since I last processed a black and white image. Be gentle.

Two views on the road from Dingle to Inch Strand

Slea Head and the Blasket Islands

Spoiler: there were dolphins, and the views were as cold as they were spectacular. Naive and stupid as we were, we didn’t dress for summer on the Atlantic west coast. By this I mean that we should have dressed for winter on the east coast.

Farthest Galway, the Maamturks, Kylemore Abbey and Killary Harbour

These photographs are presented with only light consideration given to their proper order.

Accidental mutual panoramas

We shot in opposite directions, each telling the other to frigging move.

Strandhill panoramics

These are panoramas taken over the past few days in and around Strandhill, Co. Sligo.

Great Blasket Island

There are seals and dolphins and Fastnet Rock in this photograph if you look!
