47th Irish Hot Air Ballooning Championships

Yes, you guessed right; I have returned. After a few weeks of feeling like absolute crap with Bronchitis, I’m slowly coming back to myself. So, as you can guess from the title, a prominent Hot Air Balloon Championship came to Loughrea in September, again! Unfortunately, I wasn’t well enough to go outdoors, I could barely […]

‘Stop And Smell The Roses’

I realise I never posted on Monday, or Wednesday for that matter. Damn it Alice, get your act together. A bit of self discipline always helps. So, it’s been a hectic few days. I’ve been driving all over the place, to work, to a Wedding (in torrential weather), so I never got the chance to […]

‘Just Look Up, Beauty Awaits..’

Another Thoughtful Sunday! So, amidst my recent nature walk, I was running out of ideas of what to photograph. There is not a lot to work with in my town, so you really have to look and find. Thankfully I was accompanied by my clever Mother, whom suggested I stand directly beneath a tree, and […]

‘You Can Observe A Lot, By Just Watching..’

I probably talk too much about my little Nature Walks, but I so enjoy them and they’re extremely relaxing. Walking amongst nature, and photographing all that I see, is most therapeutic.

Happy Wednesday! It’s nearly Friday, hang in there. Anyway, I ventured off on one of my nature walks, to test out my new 50mm lens. I wanted to document the difference in quality, and oh is there anything but. There is a generous difference in quality between my lenses, which is fascinating. I was accompanied […]

‘Love Is The Flower You Have To Let Grow…’

This was one of my favourite photographs, that I took whilst on a recent Nature walk. I have always wanted to capture a Bumblebee, and I finally have. For months, I have seen numerous photographers post beautiful images containing those little beauties, and I have been completely envious. And now, I can add this one […]

‘Capture The Moment, So It Will Last Forever..’

Amid my previous Nature walk, I found myself intrigued by the lapping of the waves of water that hit against the sharp rocks. In a split second, I snapped a shot, and was amazed at the result. Never in my life have I been able to photograph single droplets of water. I have always failed […]

‘Seek The Light, Find A Way..’

I know this picture differs from what I usually do, but there’s just something about this image that fascinates me, and ignites a sense of pride.  I think it’s due to the brightness that enhances everything, and the simplicity. Sometimes the simple things, are just as unique and beautiful. I’m thoroughly enjoying the direction my […]

‘We Are A Boat, We Have The Choice Where To Steer….’

Sundays; the day where you eat a lot and hope to find something on TV, and eat some more because you’re bored, and then resort to reading a great novel and completely forget to socialize with your family. I’m such a Granny. So in other words….Happy Sunday. I went on a Nature walk for the […]
