Streedagh Beach Rainbow

When you go out to photograph a potential nice sunset, you really never know what you’re going to get, especially around the Wild Atlantic Way in Sligo, as the Atlantic tends to bring in clouds, rain showers, fronts in the blink of an eye sometimes! Yesterday was one such day. With a lovely clear blue...

Wolf Moon from Strandhill

The first full moon of 2022 occurred on the 17th January. It was a stunning Wolf Moon. Technically this shot is of the moon the day before, but actually setting on the morning of the 17th. After a late night spent watching the San Francisco 49ers dispatch the Cowboys, I kind of got up too...

Strandhill Sea Foam

With a humongous swell forecast for the past few days, I’ve heard nothing but a constant rumble from our house that overlooks the beach front. With an equally big spring tide, this swell has been causing some serious erosion around the Strandhill coastline. On the third day of the swell, with whatever conditions cause it...

Gleniff Horseshoe Snow

As per a previous post , even though 65:24 is the format that’s always on when I turn on the Fuji GFX50R, it doesn’t mean I don’t use the other available format, most notably the full 4:3 image, which uses all of the available 50 megs that camera creates. Unlike the previous shot, with this...

Approaching Storm Barra

True to form, Knocknarea saved Strandhill from the first part of Storm Barra on Tuesday. It was no windier than any normal day out here! If you were the only surfer to try surfing, you’d have found super strong offshore winds but nothing major! Then it went calm as the centre passed over us in...

ROSSES POINT SUNRISE

My main reason for shooting with the Fujifilm GFX50R since April of this year, was being able to shoot in 65:24, almost Xpan format. I shot for around 7 years with the Xpan2 in the panoramic format, and put something like over 400 rolls of Fuji Velvia50 through that camera in those years, shooting places...

Rosses Point Twilight

A few months ago when I first got the Fujifilm GFX50R, my main goal was to set it up with a film simulation that produces a shot that looks like the Fuji Velvia50 film I used to shoot with the Xpan2 camera. Even though the 50R comes with an inbuilt Velvia simulation, it’s not quite...

Culleenamore Afterglow

Back in May I shot the coastal fence down in Culleenamore (see here) and due to the pretty soft muted light, I said I’d revisit this scene again in the hopes of capturing a more dramatic sky this time. For the type of sky I’ve been waiting for, this summer hasn’t been the best. I...

Fern, Ballintrillick

Sometimes you make a mistake shooting and it works out for the best. This first shot of a small fern up around Ballintrillick is one such mistake! A 1 second shot instead of a 15 second shot and this glorious vibrant green fern against a black background was the result! The second shot is the...

PANORAMIC WEDDING PORTRAITS

I shot landscape photography exclusively on a panoramic film camera from 2010 until 2017 before the astronomical increase in film costs made it no longer viable to continue. Our own eyes see the world in the panoramic format but normal cameras do not. Yes you can crop an image after but its not the same...
