I just wanted to share this new series of photographs that I have published on my Flickr page.

These shots were all taken just this week down in the South Wall and Poolbeg area of Dublin. I was down there on Tuesday morning quite early for some amazing winter sunshine, alright then it’s spring but it sure don’t fell like it. After a few hours slowly walking out towards Poolbeg Lighthouse I turned around to see that the weather was no longer being very kind to me as a mist descended over the moutains way beyond the Sandymount area. I can’t say I care that much about getting caught out in a rainstorm but I can tell you that my camera really doesn’t appreciate. So I hightailed it back to my transport for the day and sat there eating home made bread and drinking coffee from a flask that I had forgotten was in the car. An hour later and the sun it cometh back. I took myself off to Sandymount Strand then for another few hours before noticing a snow flake or two landing on my camera. I then turn around to realise just how far I had walked out on the beach towards The Pigeon House and it’s fair to say there was nowhere to hide now. At least this time I have a rain cover for my camera bag and once that was in place I just stood in the middle of a beach and enjoyed the snow. It’s not everyday you can enjoy a brief snowfall whist standing on a beach. So here’s the series of photographs from that eventful excursion.

My New Website

I am thrilled to announce my new photography website is finally up and running after many months of hard work.

I don’t like to do things by half so whilst getting ready for my first really big exhibition I also decided to teach myself how to build a website in my spare time. It has been great fun learning how to do things like this, it’s very much more challenging than a blog but it’s close to being finished now.

If you have some free time I would love you all to have a look and maybe let me know here on the blog what you think of it. I am very much open to constructive criticism, or any type of criticism, it doesn’t really matter.

Anyway the site can be viewed at www.davekphotography.com.



Phoenix Park Exhibition

I am so delighted to say that two of my photographs have been selected in the “Phoenix Park Photographic Exhibition”. The competition was open to any amateur photographer so to say that I am over the moon is an understatement. The Exhibition runs from 8th of August to the 31st of August. All the winning photos are now part of a truly wonderful exhibition in the gallery at the Visitor Centre. There are about 40 different photos covering all genres of photography. It really is well worth a visit.

Here’s one of the photos that features in the exhibition.
