The workshop was part of the “Response to Beauty” initiative facilitated by Heather to bring artists from the region together to generate an artistic response to the Cavan Burren and the wider Geopark. Elena Duff, a contemporary visual artist, […]

Old Head of Kinsale

The good weather on a recent trip to Cork over the Easter weekend yielded some nice results. This is the Old Head of Kinsale, an infamous golf course in Cork jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean. It is an extraordinary course with magnificent scenery (on a clear day at least!). Taken just before sunset I […]

The Apprentice

Our five year old son, Ben, often asks about where I have been taking photographs with a curiosity you could only expect from a kid his age. Several weeks ago I promised I would take him up the mountains where I have been taking photographs recently. With nothing fixed on the agenda this morning and […]

Dublin’s Fair City

The Custom House, Dublin on the north quay of the river Liffey. A government building built in the 18th century. It is an iconic building in the city and even more striking in the afternoon sun with a clear blue sky as a backdrop. Taken at a low angle (16mm) gave a pleasing perspective and […]

Scouting Locations

This morning’s forecast didn’t look great when I looked at it last night. Rain spreading from the west in the morning and clearing in the afternoon. I thought I might get an hour or two at 7am this morning before the rain arrived but unfortunately by the time I got to my destination it had […]

A blustery Morning on Benveg

Following a challenging work week, I figured the best antidote was a brisk hike up my new found photography happy hunting ground in the Sliabh an Iarainn and Cuilcagh mountain range. Myself and co-photographer Adrian Donohoe set out early and reached Bencroy at sunrise. Cloud and mist was quite dense initially but cleared intermittently to […]

Rain Resentment

Challenged to an assignment titled “Rain” for my local camera club I managed to persuade my five year old son Ben to express his sentiments towards the very heavy rain that was falling outside. He was reluctant to be the one on the outside, so rather than let the opportunity pass, I stood outside the […]

West Cavan & Leitrim Landscape

An early rendezvous with fellow photographer Niall got us to the foot of Slieve Anierin (also known in Irish as ‘Sliabh an Iarainn’, or ‘Iron Mountain’) before sunrise. These mountains are at relative low altitudes at just under 600m and only 30 minutes drive from where we live. A friendly local sheep farmer guided us […]

Taking Care of Business

This gentleman named Aidan was kind enough to allow me to take his photograph as he went about his business one Saturday afternoon on his tractor in north Cavan. I can’t help but reflect on the contrast of his technology versus mine (a very technologically advanced Sony A7r camera versus a Ford tractor from the […]
