  1. I particularly like the photos showing all the different textures of ropes, rocks, etc.

  2. Fantastic shots, Conor and you’re so good at sequencing them! There’s music in there.

  3. These are wonderful, Conor!

  4. Great snaps Conor! The striations in the cliffs are odd and cool looking.

  5. It looks like you enjoyed yourselves, and I am impressed that you crossed the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge. Just looking at it, even on the sunniest days and from several yards away, gives me the heebie jeebies.

  6. stunning shots… and location.

  7. Wonderful place and great shots…would love to visit this place!

  8. wow…I didn’t want the photostream to end… absolutely wonderful!

  9. Nice photos Connor. And what a colonnade!

  10. Very enjoyable series, Conor.

  11. johanstellerphotography

    wonderful series, chapeau

  12. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Very pretty!

  13. It’s spectacular there and your photographs are stunning.

  14. Amazing photos, yet another part of Ireland I have not been to, definitely plan to once I move back though.

  15. I’ve been there! I loved your photos. You brought back fond memories for me.

  16. I miss being close to the ocean and through your photographs today I could smell the salt in the air Conor. Thank you πŸ™‚

  17. what I would give to spend the day following you -amy

  18. Ah! Such beauty held within each shot. Breathtaking!

  19. Once again, the most beautiful pictures … πŸ˜‰

  20. Wonderful! I love the sky/sun and statue shots, quite breathtaking. πŸ™‚
    Nominating you for a blog award: http://radioactiveyeball.wordpress.com/2013/02/08/very-inspiring-blogger-and-blog-of-the-year-awards/

  21. Beautiful photos. Definitely a blog I want to follow

  22. Fab shots! Love the sculpture in particular!

  23. Textural, colorful, beautiful.

  24. What a magnificent collection of photographs. And, when you toured the Titanic exhibit did you have the a name of a passenger who boarded that ship on your ticket?

    • Thanks Mary. No, there were no names on the tickets… Maybe there was on the souvenir tickets you get at the end, I didn’t check though. Have you been?

      • Yes, I went to the “Titanic, the Artifact Exhibition” when it was here in Atlanta back in 2007 and each visitor was given a Boarding Pass, a replicia of the one given to those who actually boarded White Star Line’s R.M.S. Titanic, Liverpool; and on the backside of ticket they have included the name of the passenger for that ticket # and pertinent passenger facts. I saved mine and another one that I have in a file with notes I took when I toured the exhibit since photography inside was not allowed.

      • That sounds great, Mary. A lovely keepsake to have too! Photography is allowed in the Belfast exhibitions, but no flash. So I got a nice few photos πŸ™‚

  25. Great compositions, great eye. Really enjoy your images.

  26. Amazing collection! I’m feeling very inspired πŸ™‚

  27. Stunning images Conor! I think they are the best you’ve done so far, excellent!

  28. Looks like being a photographer makes people travel to capture the beautiful things and share it with the world. Beautiful Clicks Conor!

  29. an excellent series. I enjoyed viewing.

  30. Those were some amazing images! Just awesome!

  31. Wow, these are great pictures!

  32. I have just nominated you for the β€˜Very Inspiring Blogger Award’.

    • Thanks Billie, that’s very kind of you πŸ™‚

      • Your pictures are very inspiring, they show Dublin/Ireland in a brilliant way, and in a way I haven’t seen in other artists’ work. It makes me want to go out and take photographs also and you deserve this award so πŸ˜€

      • I think you should go out and take photos – especially on bright, cold and clear days like these! Thanks very much for the kind words.

      • Also, just wondered if you’ve thought about giving up your day job depending if you’re a professional photographer already or if you would consider becoming one for a living? I am so captivated by your Giants Causeway and Titanic quarter pictures because i was there last year and my photo’s are definitely not as good as yours, yours look like they could be in a National Geographic magazine. Or perhaps entering their competitions? You’d be in for a chance alright! πŸ˜€

      • You’re far too kind, Billie. The day job is going well, I enjoy it. The photography is just a love of mine, but I wouldn’t even call myself a photographer, more of a fella wandering aronud with his hands on a camera and his head in the clouds! I don’t get to it as often as I’d like, or even close, but when I do I’m in a very happy place πŸ™‚

      • Fantastic Conor, just wondered if you would have any aspirations in that direction. An ex-colleague of mine quit his job and is now a professional photographer and quite enjoying it. Your pictures are just stunning, hence the award. You don’t have to continue the rules what go with it but I decided to give it to you because they capture Ireland so beautifully. So not being far to kind, just fair πŸ˜€

  33. Hallo,
    This is for you, for being kind to others and me, http://www.bigcards.nl/card/pickup/bc-c7cf3c10/

    Sweet Valentine greetings, Summer

  34. wow, awesome place, superb photos

  35. Hi Conor, great pics, my first look of 2013 (have been a lazy blogger this year so far!) nice close ups. Macro lens? x

    • Hi Harri, no worries, I’m finding it hard to make time to keep up with all the blogs I follow with work, life and all that goes with it too! Thanks very much. No, I didn’t use a macro lens for those, just the ol’ trusty 18 to 55mm.

  36. Probably 30 years since I went to the Giants Causeway – it seemed smaller in relief, but still well worth a visit. Have you thought of going monochrome on any of these, it might bring out the shapes.

  37. A great collection showing so many ways of capturing and reflecting light. Great textures.
