A Waterford Seascape | The Seastacks known as Burke’s Rock squat in the bay of Caher Cove, appearing like Beasts of Burden heading home from another day of hard labour, in this Black & White image captured in Waterford, Ireland.

A Floral Image | A tiny stamen protrudes from a bed of yellow petals of this Tulip. These beautifully vibrant yellow Tulips really caught my eye as I was wandering through the Italian Gardens.
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.
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 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 Floral Image | I had a chance to visit our local Botanical Gardens here in Dublin and, as many of you will know this is one of my favourite places to visit in Dublin. This flower, known as a Asteraceae Dahlia ‘Ferncliff’ Decorative has a very large head and the space was densely populated. What drew me however was the tips and how the lavender transitioned into the white of the rest of the petal. I decided I’d break out the 100mm Macro Lens and focus on that detail, working very closely to the flower head and drawing out the detail, form and texture I was trying to convey in this image. I think it worked but I’ll let you be the judge.
