Christmas on the go

When life throws you around like an angry ocean and you are so busy that you have no time to take decent nature photos all you have to do is shoot on the go. If I can’t take the camera out, I just do it from the car (don’t worry I wasn’t driving) but I…

Hurricane Ophelia has arrived

Today was a strange day. I had to admit that was my first Red Weather Alert on national level. So far, we got away with the worst of it I think. It is dark outside, the wind is howling and the rain is rattling on the roof but I believe here in Galway we got…

Photographer’s worst nightmare

Every glimpse of Summer

The summer is here and I have to admit I do love this season. With every step I take on the winding country roads I wish it will never end. This is why I never go out without my camera these days even if I end up with too many images to convert… I want to…
