Wonderful, Glorious. (My favourite photos of 2013 Part 1)

In f. Nature & Sky by admin / December 18, 2013 / 0 Comments

The year is almost over so it’s a good time to showcase some of my favourite photos from 2013. This is part 1.

I didn’t get out taking photos as often as I’d like to have but most amateur photographers with kids are in the same boat I presume. People ask me what’s my favourite style of photography and I used to say I don’t have one. My previous photography blog was called Eclectic Images, which summed up my style. But looking through my photos I’ve noticed that I’ve taken more and more abstract photos.

I’m photographing my friends wedding just before Christmas and getting a new Pentax K-5ii from Santy (thanks Debbie! X). So it’s going to be an exciting finish to 2012 and I’m looking forward to 2013 with my new camera.

Happy Christmas to everyone, thanks for visiting during the year.

I like the simplicity of a plain blue sky broken by a simple airplane chemtrail.

Originally this was a macro photo of an apple. But the result wasn’t very sharp. So I messed about with the photo and this is the result

A Jaguar hood ornament from a classic Jaguar car, taken at Lackagh Heritage in Galway.
I tried to step away from the standard (plain) car shot and shot from a different angle.
There were a number of classic cars on show (and one shiny red Massy Ferguson tractor too)

Castle Rising (Kinvara Castle)

Dunguaire Castle is probably the most famous land mark that is associated with Kinvara. The castle was built in 1520 by the O’Hynes clan on the picturesque shores of Galway Bay. This restored 16th century tower house sits on a rocky outcrop on the shores of Galway Bay, 300 yards outside the village of Kinvara

Unfinished/abondened apartments in Jerusalem. I was in Israel with work and was lucky enough to have a friend working in Palestine. I visited him for a weekend and got a great tour of Jerusalem and the surronding area.

A boat by Ashford Castle. Everyone else was snapping away at the castle, I like to hunt around beyond the obvious.
