So last Saturday, I finally picked up the camera again.
Gathering dust since the summer, its first major outing since then was to beautiful, rugged Connemara in the west of Ireland – the poor ol’ Nikon deserved a treat!
The photography Gods were smiling on us as we got a fine, sunny, rain-free day – rare enough at the best of times, never mind January!
These photos are ordered chronologically from first light to last light, or from our Salthill base in the morning to the sunset in Connemara.
They show our stop offs on our way to Connemara National Park, which were made randomly, when we liked the look of something… and I liked the look of a lot of reflections!
And then they show, when we got to the park, the hike up Diamond Hill and back down again, as the sun set on a great day.
I travelled to Barcelona for the Primavera music festival recently. Here are some of the photos I took.
I have disappeared off the blogging radar in recent times. This has been largely due to a combination of being very busy and a lack of inspiration when windows of opportunity do arise.
I took the neglected Nikon out yesterday for my niece Savannah’s Communion celebrations and some of those photos are below.
I have also included a few snaps I took on a couple of the other rare occasions I have briefly taken the camera out lately.
Hopefully, this post will kickstart more regular photo taking and posting.
