Thistles flowering in front of the derelict Tudenham house, Co.Westmeath.
It’s a massive shame that this place is still left a shell. It was sold in 2013 for €681,000…hopefully the buyer had some decent plans for it.
Glendalough which translated to English means “The Valley of the two lakes” is an ancient glacial valley in County Wicklow, Ireland. Wicklow is on the eastern side of the country close to County Dublin. It is well renowned for its early medieval monastic settlement which was founded in the 6th century by Saint Kevin and features a 30 metre tall round tower that was build with local Granite.
Glendalough is only 40-60 minutes drive from Dublin and is a great place to go if only here for a short visit.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal on the 25th of April 2015, killing over four thousand people and counting. It has injured and displaced an uncountable number at this early stage. The people affected have been sleeping on the streets in open areas and are running out of water, food and medical supplies. Electricity and communication networks are also down at this time.
Kathmandu has population density of only 97 square meters so you can imagine what it can be like there!
These people need serious help at this early stage….you can help if you like by donating to Unicef who are preparing cargo planes to airlift of 120 tonnes of much needed humanitarian supplies including food, medical supplies, tents and blankets.

The man asked me to take his picture while I was strolling around the morning market of Psar Nat in Battambang. He spotted that I had a camera and asked me to take his picture.
Psar Nat is a fine example of some of the markets in Cambodia. Most restaurants and families will trade and buy all the produce they need at these markets. Visiting the markets can give you a good insight to cambodian life.

This shot was taken at an earlier stage of the Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal. It just shows the magnitude of what lies ahead on this trek.

Poolbeg towers as seen from Sandymount Strand. Glad to hear that these will remain part of Dublin’s skyline after plans to have them demolished have been scrapped.
The bay was unusually still and clear on the coastal town of Belmullet this week so I had to pull over and grab this photograph.
Belmullet is a small fishing village in Co.Mayo on the west coast of Ireland.
On the road from Navan to Mullingar. Passed this place many times but never got a chance to stop and snap a shot!

In August I took the long four hour drive to the north of Ireland to catch a glimpse of the northern lights. There wasn’t much solar activity nor was there much clear skies.
Theses two pics were the best we could get during the brief twenty minute or so clear sky.
Horn Head is a peninsula in Donegal, North West Ireland, close to Dunfanaghy.
Leaving Manang (11,545 ft) after one day acclimatization was hard. Looking back to get this shot though I was glad to be moving on to find out what lay ahead of me in the Himalaya.
I have looked online everywhere to try and identify these little beasts. Can anyone identify them because I cant!!
Going to the Pantheon is the perfect opportunity for tourists to get their obligatory roman holiday snaps.
The galley was commissioned in 1580 by Pope Gregory XIII as part of other artistic works commissioned by the Pope to decorate the Vatican. It took Danti three years (1580–1583) to complete the 40 panels of the 120 m long gallery.
The Roman Pantheon is the most preserved and influential building of ancient Rome.

One of the best places to catch a sunset in Ireland during the summer!

Took a little too long getting home from work yesterday.
I recently got an adapter to connect my FD lenses to a Canon 5D II.
I also used my 15mm macro adapter.
These photographs were taken in my garden in Dublin.
