Sunset over Dublin Port & Bull Island

Sunset over Dublin Port & Bull Island

Intending to get the most from the beautiful weather that we have been having recently, we set out to the north of the city, to Clontarf one evening to witness the sunset over the bay and the iconic Poolbeg Towers. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I ended up with a spectacular show, courtesy of the right timing and the beautiful evening.

The Colours of Dublin City

The Colours of Dublin City

If there’s one thing I love about the stretch of sunshine when it comes to photography, its the way it brings out the colour around us. Dublin may feel like a dull and grey place sometimes, but its actually pretty colourful. You just don’t notice it as much when the rain and grey clouds turn the saturation down. But with a little sunshine, take a stroll and open your eyes and you can find colour everywhere.

The Calm before The Pride

The Calm before The Pride

I happened to be in the city centre last weekend, just before the annual Pride march was about to take place. While I wasn’t able to stay for the parade itself, I did manage to see some of the buildup to the event. Dublin became a sea of colour, and the beautiful weather certainly helped.

The Summer Sunshine by the Canal

The Summer Sunshine by the Canal

It’s been a lovely summer week here in Dublin, and one of my favourite spots to enjoy the good weather int he city is by the Grand Canal between Baggot Street and Charlemont Street. Here the trees provide a nice canopy of shade and the coming and going on the banks of the canal is always interesting.

Dublin in Detail

Dublin in Detail

Perhaps it is the designer in me, but I love capturing images of details, whether it’s graffiti, street art, quirky objects, or simply bold colours and textures. Dublin city is full of these sights. Everywhere you look you will find something interesting. Whether it’s the light falling on a window display, or the layers of paper from old billboards, it’s a world of texture and colour.

The Quiet Streets

The Quiet Streets

Setting out early on a Saturday morning to shoot some street photography around the city, I was surprised at how quiet and serene it was. On this particular overcast day, the empty south side was simply peaceful. I headed around the area of the canal and Baggot Street and enjoyed the calm while trying to capture the atmosphere through the facades of the closed shops to the interesting architectural details. Even in the heart of the city, and as the bustle began to climb, there were still moments of quiet.

The First sunrise of the New Year for 2018

 The First sunrise of the New Year for 2018

Last year I got up early with the aim of capturing the sunrise for the first day of the year. I took some nice shots of the light before dawn but it clouded over too much before the actual sun rose. Still, I wanted to make it a tradition, and so, once again, I headed to the same spot in order to catch the first rays of sun for 2018.

Luas Cross City: A Look back at the Construction

Luas Cross City: A Look back at the Construction

For the past four years I’ve had a little side project in the back of my mind every time I go out shooting street or cityscape shots in Dublin city. As construction of the cross city Luas line got underway, it occurred to me that keeping at least some kind of photographic record of the progress might be interesting.

Dublin’s Autumn Light

Dublin’s Autumn Light

Autumn in Ireland is my absolute favourite time of the year for taking photos. When the leaves on the trees start to take on their seasonal colours the landscape takes on a beautiful sheen of red and gold. But it’s not just the trees, and the leaves that make Autumn special. It’s the light too. The Autumn light in Ireland is beautiful. The slow change of the seasons starts to bring a warm and golden light to the country as the sun is lower and lower in the sky.

Sunset over the Irish Sea

Sunset over the Irish Sea

I happened to be in the right place at the right time the other day to capture an amazing sunset. While travelling back on the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin, the sea was calm and the sky was beautiful, and as we reached the middle of the journey the sun set on the horizon, in a beautiful display of reds and golds.
