I would like to wish all my followers a very Happy New Year and I hope that 2015 brings you much happiness, love and prosperity.
To start off the new year, I’ve decided to pick five of my favourite photographs of 2014. This wasn’t as easy as I first thought, mainly because I did a lot of exploring last year which created some wonderful and amazing memories.
Number 1, was taken at Charleville Castle in County Offaly. A group of us were playing with steel wool and battery operated fairy lights at night. The picture below was using the latter.
Number 2, was taken in April during a photo workshop in Connemara. I was very wet and cold taking this picture as I’d already slipped in a stream, but I was so in awe of the light developing in front of me that I didn’t really notice my fingers and toes going numb 😉
Number 3, was taken in October during a photo workshop in Donegal. It was dusk and as I added my Big Stopper Lee Filter the exposure time was quite long, hence the streaking of the clouds and stillness of the sea.
Number 4, was taken in Donegal on the same weekend as the picture above. This time it was mid afternoon and the weather wasn’t very exciting, so I added a tone in Lightroom to give the image some feeling.
Number 5, was taken 5 days ago in Canada, where we spent an amazing 10 days over Christmas. These were large chunks of ice that were forming in the river.
So I hope that you have enjoyed my favourite five. Which do you like the most? I’d love to know your thoughts.
Thankyou for spending the time to read my post, have a wonderful day and please come back soon.
