A Donegal Seascape | “Waves crash upon the rocks of a rugged Donegal coastline in Ireland while the dawn sun sends out its golden glow.” Here’s something a little bit different from me. I plan to experiment this year with a lot more abstract type work. And with that in mind I started to experiment a little over the last few months of 2011.
Well firstly let me start off by wishing you all a very happy New Year. One of the images that made it into my Top 10 for last year was a piece entitled A Line of Crocuses which I originally shared with you in March. I’d like to share an alternate composition of the same subject with you today.
Well here we stand at the very edge of 2011; 2012 just within sight. It’s that time of year again; and as promised last week and again on Tuesday I am sharing my personal Top 10 favourite images from this year.
As we enter the last week of 2011 I’d like to share a little retrospective with you about both my own personal fine art photographic work during 2011 along with some interesting facts (at least to me) about www.johndunnephotograph.com.
Wishing you a very Happy Holiday Season, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or just plan to spend time with your family and friends.
A Wicklow Nightscape | Well here’s something a little different from me. Creating an image of the night sky has been on my list all year but clear skies are as uncommon at night in Ireland as they are during the day.
February, yup February is when I took this image. I actually shared an image I took of this Rhododendron back in April but had this version siting in my Aperture Library waiting for some love and attention. Well I made sure it got that today and wanted to share the final result with you. There is something quite special about a pure white flower; the delicacy and amazing texture of the petals. I hope you enjoy.
A Donegal Seascape | After I had taken the Fanad Lighthouse Image I took a walk around the cliff and surrounding area to see what else the location had to offer. Just a short walk away I was able to get down to the sea upon a jagged outcropping of rocks. By this point though the winds had begun to pick up sending the waves crashing upon the rocks, and a much more threatening clouds had begun to move in. Perfect I said in my head.
A Donegal Seascape | I have been promising to return to sharing some images from my recent Donegal trip for the last couple of weeks and today the wait is over. A stormy cloud covered sky hovers threateningly above Fanad Lighthouse while the surrounding cliffs plunge into rough seas.
A Floral Image | I came across this Orchid in their Glasshouse dedicated to these types of flowers. I thought this unusual as it had not flowered yet. Added to that the sprinkelers had just been on and I could’t resist trying something a little different from the average Orchid photograph.

A Dublin Seascape | Last Saturday I braved a Dawn shoot after several days of heavy rain and flooding. I knew this would bring some great weather conditions at the sea. I headed down to the Forty Foot near Dun Laoghaire.
