Stargazing in Hawaii

Stargazing in Hawaii

I captured this image during the summer of 2012 when we  were out in Hawaii for a week. We were on the Big Island and after spending the day sight-seeing and looking around the place. That evening we were planning a trip to Mauna Kea to see the telescopes and watch the sunset – hopefully. Assuming there was no cloud cover to hinder the view. We were going with a great tour company that picked us up around 16:10 in the afternoon and...

Aisling in the woods

Aisling in the woods

I had the pleasure of shooting with another great model tonight – Aisling Frawley – out in the woods in and around Keeper Hill in Tipperary, near Newport. I had just got a new camera that I wanted to test out and a friend of mine was going for his LIPF panel and he needed one more shot to complete it. Anyways the shot seen here was taken with all natural light – under the tree cover within the woods itself. We  did not have to...

Ice Field Parkway view

Ice Field Parkway view

This was a view that I took when we were travelling from Jasper down to Banff on a lovely bright sunny day.

I pulled in when I saw this image – my first shot was of the lake off to the right of the shot – and then I stepped in the middle of...

Float plane landing

Float plane landing

This image was taken in Homer in Alaska in July 2012. I had seen the float planes flying overhead in the days that I was there but I did not see them landing  or taking off – always in the air of flying away or into Homer itself. On this day, we were heading back from the Spit to our accommodation and I saw a float plane coming into land. I quickly parked the car and go out and raced back to a location on the bridge where the plane was...

Kite Surfer near Anchorage, Alaska

Kite Surfer near Anchorage, Alaska

This shot was captured when travelling back from Seward to Anchorage in July 2012. I had been driving for a few hours as it was and we were approximately 30 minutes out from Anchorage when I saw the kites up ahead of me. I started to get my hopes up that there would be something interesting happening. The sun was shining and it was starting to get close to the golden hour too for taking pictures. I needed a break and some air from driving...

Bandon Beach – Oregon

Bandon Beach – Oregon

This image was taken in mid July 2012 in Bandon, Oregon. We were travelling up the west coast of the US from San Francisco to Seattle and stopping off along the way to see the different views and National Parks. We were staying at the Sunset Motel as it was nicely located and the view from the balcony was straight out on the ocean. The above image was shot on the first day that we got there – we headed out for a walk along the beach and it...
