Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are well. Always have a plan B. Our be ready to improvise one at least. The morning I got this picture I woke up before sunrise and I climbed quickly to the top of this great hill which is just a few minutes from home. Still I got upContinue reading “Light burst at Knocknarea”

An Port – Donegal

There is a place up in Donegal that always surprises me for its beauty and wilderness. The coastline is fabulous, you can walk for hours both North and South along gorgeous cliffs and sea stacks. Still I haven’t managed to come home with a shot that makes it justice. Last weekend also the guys fromContinue reading “An Port – Donegal”

Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea at Night

Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are well. I have rediscovered the pleasure of drone photography recently with the weather being nice and flying being safe and easy.

Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea at Night

Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are well. Last week I took advantage of one night with clear sky to shoot the stars. I had to look for one of the darkest places in the 5 km range from home because of the lockdown and I thought the top of the local hill could doContinue reading “Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea at Night”

Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea

Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are finding more time for your photography during lockdown. Remaining in the 2 km range (now extended to 5 km) I took my camera up the hill just behind my village.

Lockdown Challenge: Strandhill

Hello fellow photographers, I hope you are doing well even in these strange times. I have been busy with other projects most of the winter till the restrictions for Covid19 kicked in.

Blackrock Diving Tower – Galway

Hello fellow photographers! This week photo trip brings us to Galway, one of the most visited city of Ireland. Galway city centre is particularly lively thanks to the many traditional pubs, stone clad cafes and an almost unlimited offer of Irish folk music.

The Milky Way over Lough Gill – Sligo

Hello fellow photographers! This time I tried my hand at one of the most fascinating fields in photography, in my opinion. It is also a field that requires a lot of commitment and experience, while I’m just a rookie. Night photography has the charm of bringing into view the unseen, it allows to capture throughContinue reading “The Milky Way over Lough Gill – Sligo”

Fanad Head Lighthouse – Donegal

Dear fellow photographers, this week exploration of Irish best photographic spots brings us straight to the North, in Donegal, where one of the most beautiful lighthouses of the world stands.

Mullaghmore at Dusk – Ireland

Dear fellow photographers, finally we were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day here in the north west of Ireland. After weeks of rain and wind, it’s really something, and even less excuses not to take your camera out. This week image is one of the simplest composition I can think of. There is barely aContinue reading “Mullaghmore at Dusk – Ireland”

Benbulben – County Sligo

Hey fellow photographers! Last time we were in Donegal photographing the snowy summit of one of the most iconic mountains of the region: Mount Errigal.

Mount Errigal – Donegal

Hey fellow photographers, hope the beginning of the new year has brought you great inspiration and gorgeous pictures.

The old Pier – Donegal

When it comes to hidden gems hunting, Instagram is a gorgeous resource. I had seen this rusty thing a couple of times on my Instagram feed before deciding it was worth a visit, last winter. It’s amazing how we can be happy with very little when we are behind a lens. I liked the curvyContinue reading “The old Pier – Donegal”

Stormy day in Sligo

Windy days are quite common here on the Irish West coast. Even though they usually come with rain showers and a dull cloudy sky, it doesn’t mean that you can’t take your camera out and go for a nice landscape photo session. In those days my preference goes to seascapes. Breaking waves are a greatContinue reading “Stormy day in Sligo”

Lough Gill – Sligo

I went there yesterday looking for some “photographic inspiration” and wasn’t disappointed at all! Location: Innisfree isle, Lough Gill, County Sligo, Ireland. What to shoot: Lake Gill offers severalContinue reading “Lough Gill – Sligo”

Dun Briste – Downpatrick Head

This impressive sea stack really looks as a sort of rocky platform rising from the ocean. All those clearly distinct layers of rock and its sharp edges gives it a robotic touch that makes it even more fascinating. I tried a long exposure to make the rock stand out more from the ocean, so toContinue reading “Dun Briste – Downpatrick Head”

The Custom House – Dublin

Since I moved to Ireland landscape photography has taken more and more space into my routine, and I love being there in the outdoors with my gear, walking or hiking while looking for some new natural spot. Still, cityscape keeps always a place into my photographic heart! And this year the Custom House in Dublin,Continue reading “The Custom House – Dublin”

Poulnabrone Dolmen – Ireland

  Hi fellow photographers! It has been difficult to find the time to write any posts in the past month; I have preferred to spend most of the spare time doing what I like most, which is travelling all around Ireland, exploring its hidden gems, doing a lot of spot scouting, combining photography with hikingContinue reading “Poulnabrone Dolmen – Ireland”
