Mary Buchan and the Sabrina shipwrecks
On my way home I want to make one last stop to see how the Sabrina (wreck in red) looked in a lower tide. I decided to capture another close by wreck (Mary Buchan) along with the Sabrina in the background.
Wind blown sand with sun beams in the distance
Tramore strand is a very wide beach during low tide and where the wind and waves leave these lines in the sand that lead your eyes out to the sun beams dancing in the distance.
Sandy path to the beach
Finally able to see the beach after a 20 minute walk over the grassy sand dunes. The grass covered dunes frame the path leading you to the beach.
Sand dunes path to Tramore beach
Cows blocking the road
We were stopped on the road in a random Irish valley where we ran into a traffic jam with the cows moving around to graze. We were looking at the cows and this shot looks like all the cows are saying look people.
Great Pollet Sea Arch
I managed to get a few different perspectives of this arch but this one I liked the best as it shows the top of the arch down to the sea.
Fanad lighthouse on Fanad peninsula at dawn
An early morning start in order to get to Fanad Lighthouse at dawn. This was the only bit of color we saw this morning.
Arch on the Bloody foreland
Long exposure of a nice looking arch to smooth out the water moving around it.
Black and White of the side view Bad Eddies wreck
This is the last shot I was able to get without getting water in the boots I was wearing. This long exposure allows the clouds to stretch and water to even out.
Bad Eddies wreck sitting in the tidal water near Magheraclogher
With the tide moving in I had to work fast to get multiple views of the fantastic wreck.
Black and white of Bad Eddies wreck showing the ribs of the old boat
First shot of this wreck showing the inside of the boat with the missing side in the high tide.
Three wrecks near Magheroarty
The three wrecks near Magheroarty on the coast of Ballyness Bay. I wanted to capture all three so I decided to do a panorama in order to get them all and keep some detail.
A small wreck beached on the coast of Ballyness Bay
Here a small boat was wrecked and beached where it will likely sit until the wood rots away.
Black and white image of an old grave and Dunlewy church
Here the stormy clouds and light stone of the grave lend this picture to look better in black and white opposed to color. In order to capture this shot used my tilt-shift lens to take a vertical panorama in order to get the entire church with the grave.
Old stone bridge on the path to Poisoned glen
The rocky stream under the old stone bridge near the Dunlewey church.
Turbulent water at Murderhole beach
Here I captured the water as it retreated back to the bay during one of the waves on the rocky shore.
Sunrays over Horn head in the distance
I'm above Murderhole beach and high enough to see Horn head above the little island in Boyeeghter bay.
Two Donkeys in an Irish field
Here I'm in a field with cows and a few Donkeys. This one was trying to lick or eat my camera.
Two curly horned rams in an Irish field
These two rams look like there talking to each other.
Aged and weathered door in Ireland
Here the contrast of the red makes it stand out with the dull and worn surroundings even though it's been worn and weathered by the environment.
Four red bark trees in Ards forest
I took many different shots in Ards forest and this one was my favorite capturing the red of the these trees offset by the green surrounding them.
Bright rainbow landing on Horn head near Dunfanaghy Ireland
After sunrise I was treated with a bright rainbow where I changed lenses in order to get a close view.

The Sabrina shipwreck beached in an Irish bay
Here on the southern part of Mulroy bay the Sabrina shipwreck sits tied to the shore on a stormy Irish evening just before the rain hit.
Mevagh graveyard with many different styles of gravestones
Here I show some of the different styles of grave stones and crosses that have been created in Mevagh graveyard.
Old cross through an opening in the wall of an old structure with in Mevagh graveyard.
Mevagh graveyard had many old and newer grave stones. Here one of the oldest a large carved stone is framed by an opening showing the old cross.
Man (me) admiring Marble Arch sitting on one of the rocky points
To get to this point I had to scale down the rocky cliff face you see on the right side of the picture. I had to climb it twice due to my remote not working for me the first time.
Marble Arch and it's surroundings
Here you can see Marble Arch and all the turbulent water crashing on the coast. To get to this arch one of our guides talked to the local farmer to get permission to walk across his fields in order to get here quicker.
Dunfanaghy pier after sunrise on a calm morning.
After shooting the color from sunrise the water was still high enough and calm enough to get a good reflection of the building on the pier.
Clam morning in Dunfanaghy looking out over the bay
One of the calm mornings (if not the only calm morning) in Dunfanaghy looking out over the bay.
Silohette of man and dog paddle boarding in Dunfanaghy Bay
Met this man and his dog who was nice enough to go out for another paddle so we could get some picutres of him.
Errigal mountain from beside the reservoir
For this shot I got down off of the dam and found a nice set of trees to frame Errigal.
Errigal mountain in front of Dunlewy Lough from the top of a damn
Errigal mountain peak in the Derryveagh Mountains in Donegal, Ireland (Ireland's highest mountain peak). This was one of the few times we saw it out of the clouds.
Waterfall and the turbulant flow swirling in the stream near Crolly
Another view of the waterfall with a longer exposure to accentuate the swirling water.
Raging water fall after recent rains near Crolly
Had to walk through a bog to get this shot but luckily I didn't sink through like some others did. Here I'm capturing the rapid movement of the water with some heather to add a little pop of color.
Double arch near Breeches arch at Crohy Head
Again capturing the heather and the moss covered rock in the forground of the double archs
