About five years ago when I first started taking photographs, I reveled in the freedom to explore all genres and took every opportunity to shoot whatever got in my way on that particular day. I literally took thousands of photographs. Nothing was safe from my prying lenses. :-) And indeed, many of those images ended up in the bin - where they belonged, to be honest.
A tree is a tree, is a tree? Well yes ... and no. You see, it all depends on the light. I've spoken on a few occasions before about the unique light in the west of Ireland. The light we have here comes in two flavours - bad light and good light. Some argue that there is no bad light, just undiscovered light, but that's another blog entry.
Back in February of 2012, I posted one of my rare blog entries. It was entitled "Photographic Journey" and concerned my intentions to return to my photographic roots and start once again to shoot a more diverse range of subjects/objects. That post got over 15,000 hits! However, as with many New Year resolutions, as time went by it became more difficult to adhere to.
First up, you all know how I like to shoot landscape and seascape photographs. And I do enjoy it - immensely! However, I try to shy away from the classic sunset/sunrise shot. I know people love them and it is hugely enjoyable to be out at those times and come home with an "orangey" image! :-)
