Visual Diary May 2014

90/365/2014 - Mist and Rain

90/365/2014 – Mist and Rain

Sometimes, just sometimes there is a glow that you can get early in the morning of a miserable misty day that if you wait a few minutes it will pass and be gone – leaving behind a blanket of green to show how fresh the Irish landscape can be at this time of year.
The view from my hotel window this morning.

91/365/2014 - Hot Stuff

91/365/2014 – Hot Stuff

I love a real fire and it is one of the great joys when we travel to Cavan that I get to light up this big stove.

It was far to warm to light it at this time of year and the plan was to do some night shooting in the local hills – startrails was the goal but the glass of red wine, a hard week, a big meal and the heat of the fire all conspired against me and I fell asleep on the sofa.

92/365/2014 – Tullydermot Falls

A long drive around the wild hills of Cavan lead to some interesting discoveries. The weather was misty and cool but when your standing in a river it’s all the same really. Shot in the Cuilcaigh Mountains near Swanlinbar.

93/365/2014 - The Cosy Bar

93/365/2014 – The Cosy Bar

The more time I spend in the village of Belturbet the more I love it. I walked around the town for a few hours looking at the old shop fronts and reading all the tourist information boards.
The town used to be a pretty bad bottle neck on the way to other places but in recent years has been by-passed with a new road.
I fear that now that no one needs to happen through the place it will suffer and the small bit of tourism it sees will pass.

114/365/2014 – Botanical

Sunday is filled with ritual. A lazy start to the day, breakfast in the Botanical gardens and then a stroll in the grounds to make room for coffee and cake.
I have a long exposure app on my iPhone which can be a bit of fun sometimes. 8 second “exposure” with the phone teetering on the handrail on a bridge.

We have reached that wonderful part of the Irish summer when you can still be out walking in daylight at 10 o clock at night.
I love the long summer evenings.

119/365/2014 – Bulking Up

Preparing for a weekend of landscape photography in the west of Ireland.
I wanted a slow film and something that would allow me use an IR filter to let me cut to some of the traditional haze of the Irish Summer

    Love the polaroid Time Travel pic the best! Is the duck silhouette real or a manipulated image?

    • Aware of the Void / Jun 7 2014 12:39 am

      Pretty much as shot, tweaked a small bit on the phone but it was a very high contrast scene.
      The duck had been sitting on the cross until……someone…..disturbed it..

    Love the pics and your sense of humour

    Nice series. I got a chuckle out of “The Price of Salvation.” Love “Slaney.” Great perspective. Nice color and composition.

      You don’t have to move to far in this country to find something like that salvation one….and the Slaney shot will remind me of the day I smashed my light meter getting out of the car.
