COASTAL HERITAGE

Remains of the Day

CONNEMARA, CO. GALWAY

"After a damp start to the day, this was my last port of call, and it didn't disappoint. Conditions were amazing, stillness and calm all around. With the boat tied to its morning, the sheep grazing, it felt as though the day was complete for man and beast - hence the title. "

The Lighthouse

HOWTH, CO. DUBLIN

"The clean lines and textures of the stone caught my eye, the location at the end of the pier isolated the building from any intrusive background. I captured the shot and converted the image to black and white to bring out the textures even more."

ARDMORE, CO. WATERFORD

"My intention for my trip to Ardmore was to photograph the landmarks in the area. I took several shots when the sun started to come out and a young lady who was walking decided to cut across the corn field. This was how the image came about.  "

ROCKABILL LIGHTHOUSE, CO. DUBLIN

"It has been my dream to photograph the lighthouse on the larger of the two islands. I had no regrets as the conditions treated us to a colourful display of light as the sun dipped below the horizon."

Clontarf Bridge

CLONTARF BRIDGE, CORK CITY

"This bridge has a very significant part of the city's industrial heritage. Clontarf Bridge is an example of reduce reuse repurposed, providing a safe passage for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians while bridging to the earliest mechanized transport in Ireland. I enjoy capturing our ever-changing relationship where the coast and mankind meet."

FINVARA MARTELLO TOWER, CO. CLARE

"Learning from an unsuccessful and disappointing attempt to capture this shot in 2019, I knew the trio of clear skies, a new moon and an early season Milky Way would all need to align to allow me any chance of getting the shot I had imagined. The opportunity finally arose on a Saturday morning in April of this year. "

EAST PIER, DUN LAOGHAIRE, CO. DUBLIN

"I have photographed around Dun Laoghaire for many years and it can be hard to get something unique and different. However, this sunset turned into a spectacular cloud formation that I had never witnessed before.  It really looked like the end of the world was happening that night hence the title."

"The Hook Lighthouse is the oldest Historic Lighthouse in the world. Conditions this building must withstand with such raging sea storms is just remarkable.
