A Kerry Landscape | The sun sets behind the ruins of Ballycarbery Castle near Cahersiveen in Kerry, Ireland
A Wicklow Landscape | As the sun shines through the trees above and paints the rocks with its dabbled light, the water cascades through small falls at Powerscourt Waterfall in Wicklow.
A landscape image taken at Grianan of Aileach showing Crepuscular rays peaking from Stratocumulus cloud upon lush green farmland in the heart of Donegal, Ireland.
A Sligo Landscape | The sun sets upon another day at Enniscrone Golf Course in Sligo, the Club House in the background and a still river in the foreground reflecting the magenta tinged clouds above.
A Floral Image | A photograph from a recent wander around my local park showing the first buds of a new spring emerging from a tree after its winter slumber.
An abstract image of a Cotoneaster arbusculus through the use of camera motion during exposure. Another image from my developing ‘impression’ series.
An abstract image of a ‘Lionel Fortescue’ through the use of camera motion during exposure. Today I wanted to share how I am progressing in my pursuit of a photograph as an ‘impression’ of a time and place rather then ‘record’.
A Floral Image | A close-up image of a Calla Lily flower showing the detailing and texture of the white petals. Back in June last year I shared an image of a Calla Lilly called Hidden from Sight that eventually made it into my Top 10 Favourite images of 2011. Today I wanted to share another composition from that same session.
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.
I spent this weekend with Family down in our usual log cabins at Skeagh Lake in County Cavan. I came across this tiny buttercup almost lost inside tall blades of lush green grass that were drenched after a downpour an hour earlier.
A close-up of the delicate petals of a Centaurea montana flower set against a soft green background. The image I am posting today is a follow-up to one I posted earlier last month although taking a different perspective on the flower also known as a Bachelor’s Button.
The violet flower of this Tillandsia ‘Anita’ is in full bloom. This one has been on the back burner since April. I was fascinated by this plant when I came across it in Johnstown Garden Centre in Nass, Kildare.
