Happy New Year! This photograph was taken last week in the Clare Glens. The cold spell had caused ice to form in any slow moving areas of the river. I arrived late in the day as the sun was starting to set, so I was fortunate to be able to keep it in the frame. The raw file was tonemapped to help bring out some of the shadow detail.
I usually put together a year in review post, but I haven’t had much time this year. My photographic highlights of 2010 were placing 2nd in the National photography competition run by An Taisce for the photograph “Surf’s Up” and having 3 photos selected for the Limerick City Council 2011 calendar. In total I posted 60 new shots in 2010 which is a lot less than previous years. This was down to the fact that I didn’t get a chance to get out and about with the camera much this year due to being busy with my day job as well as due to the non-photographic highlight of the year – getting married!
