Was the boat already there or the dedicated-you moved it into the scene, single-handedly? 😁

Behind The Lens


I took this photo at one of the many lakes in Connemara, County Galway. It's a very isolated spot and I have enjoyed many sunsets and sunrises here.


This particular shot was taken in the dying light of an autumn evening. I was in the process of setting up for some blue hour long exposures when I noticed this wonderful viewpoint.


The lighting was a little tricky since I was shooting in direct sunlight, so I shot at f22 on a tripod. I wanted to get maximum glare while still capturing the stillness and calm of the location.


This was shot on a Nikon D750 with a Sigma 24-105mm. I used a tripod to steady shot, no filters were used.


Although it was taken at sunset, this had a feel of a beautiful crisp morning getting ready fo a great day of fishing.


I used minimal post production, just enough to bring the hut and foreground to light as they were dark when shot against such a bright sun.

In my camera bag

My Nikon D750 a with my Sigma 24-105mm. I used to bring my Nikorr 16-35mm but I find it doesn't suit my style photography as much anymore. I also bring my two filters, a CPL & ND.


The sun moves quickly when it's this low. Find the spot you want and set up your tripod as quick as you can and shoot as many shots as you can until the sun is gone. Remember to use f22.
