This photo was taken on Abbey Island, Derrynane near a large cliff like jump called ‘The Animal’. Strong sun reflecting off this weathered Red Sandstone produced an interesting contrast and lots of shadow. Original image, not converted to B/W.

This is a Black and White HDR (High Dynamic Range) image of a beautiful Wedding Rover 95 on the roadside near Gleesk, Co. Kerry, Ireland.

It seems my EOS 40D decided to die and go to heaven.. the shutter mechanism failed to work after this photo was taken – this was, as a result, the final photo it ever took. It is now to be sent off for servicing. RIP shutter, you did me proud! I kind of wonder were these gates a metaphor for something..

Dragon Fly

This Dragon Fly was captured on camera at the end of their season, was at this stage unable to fly any longer (or else had no hesitation to pose for a vast number of photos and angles). Image taken on a hilltop in South West Kerry.

Derrynane Gardens - ‘Gold Leaf’

This is a totally unmodified photo (apart from slight saturation adjustment) of three of the girls who I went with to Electric Picnic. It was taken in front of main stage. Fortunately the three ‘exposures’ you see here are as a result of a very long exposure, my flash and 2 strobes from the main stage resulting in a bizzare and need I say beautiful photograph.

This image was shot just approaching the entrance to Ardgroom Harbour looking back across to the Kerry side of the Kenmare Estuary.

Translates to “Worked to Death”

During what could have been one of the busiest days at the Colosseum (I guess it couldn’t really ever have a quiet day, it’s spectacular), I managed to capture this image, just about eliminating any of the horrible modern barriers and the floods of people herded through them. Unmodified and uncropped.

While en route to the capital city of Albania (Tirana), we passed a number of amazingly old fashioned modes of transport. This photo of a couple on a Honda 50 shows the typical and primative means for which people have to get from A to B as a result of Albania’s social and economic collapse after the collapse  of a nationwide pyrimad scheme which plunged the country into gaining third world status including the collapse of a government in 1997 and riots in which over 2,000 people were killed.
