No surf for me last wkend :(

I did get to go out and play with some filters that i got last week though.

I was a bit bummed with the sunset, just dropped out of the sky without any dramatic final hurrah. Prob about 2 days in the year when there aren't any clouds around to light up the sky!

This is my favorite one, there were some nice steep steps on the way down reminded me of this shot a bit,

Didn't quite turn out as i'd have liked but still stoked on it as i had packed up and was heading home when i saw it, so was kind of like a bonus shot!

Looks like some potential for good surf later in the wk though so hopefully my next post will be of that nature!

Mid May Madness


Ok blogging here we go. As this is my inaugural post i'll lay down some guidelines as to what one might expect to see here. I'm not a particularly opinionated person and am not starting this up so i can start ranting and raving about different things that piss me off.

This is simply going to be an outlet for me to put up some recent shots i've taken that i'd like to share and hopefully it will force me out with my camera more so as i have content to keep this going.

Anyway here are some from the very slabalicious county of Clare last week.

Here's one of Paudie about to jump in. I'm not too sure what he's waiting for it looks pretty timid. .................................

Ok so timid might not be the most appropiate word!

This is what i get out of bed at 4 in the morning for.

Here is a less death like one! was weird shooting from dry land. i don't normally as i don't quite have the lens for it (got a loan of paudies for these). I can't argue with the results. I only stayed around for about 20mins and got loads of sweet shots but it just wasn't the same!

Finally one more from the day.

Here is Shane O'Conner on his first ever tow in wave at the cliffs.The first of many many more to come. Nothing too special more sentimental! We won't bust his balls for not stalling for the barrel on his first one. I probably would be already out of frame :)
He got whipped into a few more but nothing "too hectic" according to him!
