The Birds- Starling Birds Starlings murmuration in Galway

In f. Nature & Sky by admin / January 24, 2014 / 2 Comments

Every year thousands of starlings fly in patterns above Lackagh, Galway. This is called murmation and is amazing to watch.
I tried to capture the spirit and fear from Alfred Hitchcocks classic film The Birds. The birds look almost like an invasion of fighter planes in the sky.

Dulux Dog

I did my first photo shoot last Saturday for my local hardware store. One of their attractions for the kids was Aslan, ‘the’ Dulux Dog instore. Kids had their chance to get a photo taken with him. I was surprised by the amount of people that turned up to get their photo taken; over 200. It was a relentless but fun day and I was getting a little bit worried that I’d run out of space on my 2 memory cards. But all was okay in the end. Here’s a few pictures of the start attracion- Aslan.

The Old English Sheepdog is the brand mascot for Dulux paint. The dog was first introduced in advertising campaigns in 1961. Since then they have been a constant and highly popular feature of Dulux television and print adverts wherever the paint is sold. So much so, that many people in those markets refer to the breed as a ‘Dulux dog’ rather than a Sheepdog.

The lone rider

I was driving through Lackagh when I saw this cyclist coming towards me from out of the fog. I quickly pulled over, grabbed my camera and managed to snap him before he cycled past. I like the atmosphere that the fog adds to the picture.
