~Solar Eclipse~
20-03-2015

A quick photo of the solar eclipse I took today, when the clouds parted enough for me to get a glimpse. Did anyone else see it?

~Living Life~
Cromwell Point, Kerry

Sunrise, by the ocean, with the sky blazing. There's not much better then that, living and experiencing what the world offers, surely that is living life.

Enjoy and share!

~Farmers Walk~
Kerry, Ireland

I arrived at this spot over looking Puffin Island, and the Skelligs in the background, around midday, to scout the area for a night shot (which unfortunately didn't pan). I was there about ten minutes when these two farmers can walking down the lane with their sheep.
When I saw them turn to walk down this little path I couldn't believe my luck, it made this photo come alive. Although the photo is not technically perfect, the focus was a little soft (I got to excited lol), I felt the overall image more than made up for that. You can plan a shot for hours but sometimes its about being in the right place at the right time

I'm honoured and humbled that one of my images was selected to be printed in the upcoming Plus One Collection III book beside many awesome photographers.
Funds raised from this project will go to the Saving Eliza campaign. Eliza O'Neill is a happy 4-year-old who, because of a degenerative genetic disease called Sanfilippo syndrome, may not live into her teens. If she doesn’t get the treatment she needs, she will lose the ability to speak within 6 months and suffer irreversible brain damage within a year and a half.
More information and contributions towards the project can be made here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii

~Torc Waterfall~
Kerry, Ireland

Decided to try get a different composition of Torc Waterfall then the standard shot and this is the result. Happy with the way it turned out.

Torc Waterfall is one of the jewels of the Killarney area. A majestic cascade through a leafy valley, it's a place of wonderful calm.

I used +Michael Breitung's Dreamy photo technique on this photo and very happy with the result. You can purchase it from here: http://www.mibreit-photo.com/tutorials/dreamy-photos.html

~Cromwell Point~
Valentia Island, Ireland

Morning waves crashing at Cromwell Point. Nearly went into the water once or twice here, its important to keep an eye on the waves so you don't get caught out, but this place was great fun to shoot, gets the heart pumping :)

~Dunquin Pier~
Kerry, Ireland

The sun sets at Dunquin Pier. After three hours waiting, the evening light began to glow. Here is where you can get a boat out to the Skellig Islands, about a 40 minute boat trip.

~Awakening~
Conor Pass, Kerry, Ireland

Intense sunrise at Conor Pass, lighting the sky up, leading to me doing a little jig as the wind tried to knock me into the valley below. Well worth the 5am start.

~Dawn over Beginish Island and Valentia Harbour~
Valentia Island, Ireland

Beginish is an island in Valentia Harbour, in south west Kerry, Ireland. Beginish Island is currently uninhabited, the last remaining residents being 2 elderly brothers who left the island in the 1990s.

The island has numerous archaeological sites, including a Viking settlement occupied between the 10th and 12th centuries,[3] which consists of a circular stone dwelling, outhouse and a midden. Also occupying the highest point on the western end of the island is a block hut known as "Pilots lookout", which was used in the 19th and early 20th century to spot ships coming into Dingle bay which may have required pilotage into Valentia harbour
