Water Abstract | And abstract photograph showing the water swirling in abstract patterns while the riverbed beneath glows in vibrant greens and golds.
A Dublin Landscape | A black and white image of ivy winding it’s way around the trunk of a tree in Deer Park in Dublin.
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.
I recently completed a 12 month project for Bright3D and Fingal County Council photographing the amazing flora and landscapes at Malahide Gardens. In this post I discuss the experience and share a sample of the images produced.
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’.
I had the opportunity over the weekend to spend the whole day with the camera on personal work and wow did I enjoy it. It’s been a waaaaay too long since I’ve had the chance to wander around with nothing to do but take pictures. I’ve been promising myself for a while now to produce something shall we say… less photographic!
A Floral Image | Wow didn’t we have a lovely March here in Ireland! Spring seems to be about Cherry Blossoms now more then Tulips, at least where I live.
One from the Archives | A close up image of the sunlight causing frost on brown winter withered leaf to sparkle.
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.
Spring is here! While I love what every season brings, Spring offers something truly special. This image above captures the very essence of that new life for me. The bud of a new flower literally bursting from the ground. The dead brown leaves surrounding the vibrant pink flower stem acting as a classic juxtaposition – winter/death vs spring/life.
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.
