From St Dizant du Gua to my garage

From St Dizant du Gua in the Auvergne region of France to my garage is quite a journey. It was while I was tidying up my garage (an on-going process) that I came across this mixed case of Pineau. It has been lying hidden in my garage for so may years I had forgotten it’s […]

Landscape photography in a forest in Northern Ireland

This morning I was supposed to be preparing materials for prospective wedding clients but… I heard the weather forecast. Today was to be the last sunny day for a week so let’s change plans. I’m a […]

Royalty comes to our village

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall came to the historic village of Gracehill today. Now living here does not usually involve visits of this nature so nothing else for it – grab camera and go.

Recently I took a short break to Barcelona. Incredibly I have never been in Spain before on holiday so I really didn’t know what to expect apart from the obvious Gaudi influence. What a revelation. An incredible city. Great people, great food (if a little different at times),  fantastic sights and a very easy city […]

Glens of Antrim rivers

Now that we don’t have a glorious summer I got a spare dry midday break and found one of the advantages of all the rain here in Ireland. It gives landscape photography all the greens you could want as well as plenty of well filled rivers. Just a couple of river/waterfall shots taken in the […]

Chasing the light

It had intended to be a walk on the beach but the weather decided otherwise. Rather than just give up, go home and make a cup of tea I decided to wait it out just to see what the weather would do. On the north coast of Northern Ireland there is always the chance the […]
