Murlough Bay
Antrim, Northern Ireland

Murlough is a lovely bay situated in a secluded part of the county Antrim Coast. It is reached by a steep, winding road and offers superb views of Fair Head, Rathlin island and on a clear day Scotland.

Murlough Bay is well known for its flora, fauna and geology - a curved limestone cliff protects one of the few remaining old 'natural' temperate woodlands in Ireland.

Definitely worth a visit +Michael Breitung, be sure to have a decent car with you when you go down because the road is very steep and tiny!

~Rainbows End~
Portbradden, County Antrim

We were on our way to Dunseverick as the rain was falling, suddenly we turned a corner and this awesome rainbow appeared. We quickly drove down this little road and up up at Portbradden, a beautiful spot located beside White-park Bay. I quickly hoped out and captured this shot before the rainbow disappeared. Wish I had time set up my tripod but you gotta adjust to the quickly changing conditions so I shot this one handheld. It came out not to bad. 
Hope you like it

Glendasan River
Glendalough, County Wicklow

Taken along the Glendasan river on a summers day, meaning I had to wait twenty minutes for the rain to stop so I could get this shot. In the background you can see a round tower, part of an early Christian ecclesiastical settlement that was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century.

~Lighthouse In A Rock Pool~
St. Johns Point Lighthouse, County Down

I had scouted out this location when I arrived, looking for rock pools which would give me a nice reflection of the lighthouse. I had come here planning to shoot the lighthouse at the blue hour, which I did (see here:, however when the sun began to set and the sky started to light up I had to get a couple of shots in. 

This is a blend of three exposures, one for the sky, one for the lighthouse and rocks and another shot taken with a polarizer to get a view into the rock pool.

Hope you enjoy

~A Moment Of Calm~
Derryclare Lough, County Galway

Took a spur of the moment trip up to Galway during the summer with the fam and before we went home I managed to convince them to take a trip up to this well known lake. As we got closer the weather got worse and worse, fortunately the rain eased a bit when I got there but the 12 Pins Mts behind were shrouded in mist. Not ideal conditions but I knew a nice long exposure shot would work well here and I'm quite pleased with the result, the long exposure calmed the water and made the island in the middle of the lake the focus point. 
Ya gotta know how best to use the conditions to your advantage is something I'm continually learning.

Enjoy and share!

Ballintoy Harbour
County Antrim, Northern Ireland

A stormy evening at Ballintoy Harbour yesterday. I was crouched on the side of this hill as the wind was blowing strong, with the sun shining through under the clouds. Soon after the rain came and I had to retreat to my car. 
This harbour was also used in Game of Thrones, the habour at the Iron Islands I believe.

The Golden Coast
The Giant's Causeway, County Antrim

A re-edit of my image the golden coast.
This was the sight I was greeted with as I started to run down to the hexagonal columns of the Giant's Causeway and I had to stop and take shot, it was definitely one of the most awesome sunsets I have ever seen.

Derryclare Lough, County Galway

This is my submission to the Plus One Collection, a really great cause as the proceeds from the book are donated to charity. This is an image from Derryclare Lough located in Connemara, an area containing some of the most beautiful landscape in Ireland.

Filters and holders galore!

Look what finally arrived!! So after getting The Big Stopper the day after I ordered it I had to wait nearly 6 months before I could afford to by the Lee holder, along with a 0.9 soft GND filter. I hope to get out in the next few days if the weather clears to get some shots, exciting. Talk about delayed gratification haha Have a gooden' everyone! :)
