Pat & Solomon

On Friday I found myself in the beautiful surroundings of Doneraile Park in Cork. The weather was fresh (but cold), daffodils were beginning to bloom and Spring was in the air. I was preparing for a wedding so I was exploring the park to find the best locations to take photographs. After about an hour…

Moving Forward

While on my way home from the photography convention last week I was feeling inspired after hearing so many great speakers, but I was stuck on a train and the only camera I had with me was the camera on my iPhone. The latest version has a panorama feature which allows you to move the…

Inch Beach Sand Dunes

Last week I took a few days of (long overdue!) holidays and went to Kerry with my wife for some rest and recuperation. We mostly stayed in Killarney but we did venture out on a day trip to the Dingle Peninsula too. It was Arthur’s day so we got to see some great live music (by Neon Wolf and Walking On Cars) and we had a lovely chat with Micháel O’Sé in a pub too (author of the Leaving Certificate book “A Thig Ná Thit Orm”). We also enjoyed some Murphy’s Ice Cream in the driving, horizontal rain!

On the way we stopped at Inch beach for a while. It was nice to take some personal photographs for a change. Here are a few little bits and pieces that grabbed my eye along the sand dunes…
