A couple of edits

Upper Yosemite Falls from Swinging Bridge

Hetch Hetchy (don't drain the resevoir!!!!!)

Sorry about the complete lack of posts lately, I've been working insane hours. Lately I've been working on trying to blend to edits of the same picture in order to preserve more of the detail. So in the one of the bridge here, the original shot that I had, had the whole area of water completely white, which looked awful. However with a few simple edits, you can bring back a bit of the detail. These are both from Yosemite last summer.

Times Square dodge and burn

mini marathon

just a shot from the mini marathon. So many women! Click to view this one large, it's only then that you get a lot of the detail. I love the one man trying to direcet them all, reminds me of the old story about the pebble controlling the flow of a river.

As with every other year, there were a few interlopers as well, no doubts raising lots of money for charity in most cases!

Cover shot!!!

Got the cover shot for this issues Irish Runner for a features picture of my mum, who has run all the Women's Mini Marathons to date (25th on Monday). It's a nice family thing to have her on the cover with me taking the photo, and the editor Frank Greally was very kind to both of us in the editorial! Might get more work from in future given how enthused he was. Anyway, here is it, my first cover shot!

P.S. good luck to anyone reading this who is running on Monday!

Ruairi Quinn

To continue the electoral theme, here's a couple of pictures of Ruairi Quinn from the recent L&H challenge as part of the ''goodbye to the terrace'' series of events in UCD. He gave a brilliant speech, recollecting his time in the L&H, and what the experience had given to him.

During the speech

Something to do with Thomism...

it's a montage...!

Playing around in a last ditch effort to avoid studying. Some political figures past, present (for a couple of days at least!) and potentially future.

Cutty Sark

Very sad news today, that the Cutty Sark was gutted by fire. Just thought I'd post a picture from when I visited last summer. London truly wouldn't be the same without her. If you click to view the image full size, you can just make out of the hull in the blue section ''where there's a will is a way''. Let's hope the will to rebuild her can be achieved.

fashion shot

One from this Saturday's shoot, I'll post a few more tomorrow, decided for a less saturated/ granier/ dark edges (vignetted) look to bring out the 60's theme a bit more, might post the other version too to show the difference!

Killiney hill sunset

Took a trip up Killiney hill for sunset this evening. Didn't get there quite early enough to get many shots from the woods, but got a few that were nice enough anyway. It's so beautiful up there, definitely have to go back during the summer and take some sunrise shots looking out over the bay.

The setting sun cast long shadows

The sunset itself, you might just notice the cranes over Sandyfor silhouetted in
the bottom right hand corner!

Gorse in the sun's glow

Some other who'd made it up there
