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. This shot though is from before the lockdown, when it was still possible to travel around and driving the 20 km to the lake was just normal.Continue reading “Lockdown Challenge: Knocknarea at Night”

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.

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 have been offered the opportunity to test a landscape preset editing package, created and commercialized by “Sleeklens“, a Danish growing company specialized in products for Lightroom and Photoshop, such as presets and brushes.

It is curious how one of the most solitary and remote places of Ireland had now become one of the most visited and photographed around the country. However, it is really easy to understand the popularity of this enchanted place at the very first sight. Here it is my first approach to Glendalough, or theContinue reading “Lake Glendalough – Ireland”
