Old Irish School House

Old Irish School House

Old Irish School House

I was going through and doing cataloging of some of my images from the last few years and stumbled upon this one.  I have a ton of older images that I have made a vow to get organized.  So, this an abandoned school house that sits on a hill and overlooks the ocean.  The location is beautiful.  If I was a student at this school I would have been day dreaming of big ocean adventures everyday.  Guess they abandoned it because none of the students could concentrate on school work.

What’s Ireland Without An Irishman

I am back home after a long journey yesterday.  All messed up with jet-lag but that will resolve itself in a day or so.  Have a busy week before heading to China next Wednesday.  Today’s image was shot on the street of Killanery of a typical Irishman standing on the street.

School House On A Bluff

School House On A Bluff, Ireland

The PODAS works shop is now over and oh what a workshop it was.  It was a week of a lot of photography, good classroom sessions and lots of fun and laughs.  It’s great when you can bring fifteen photographers together from all over the world and share a similar passion.  Bidding farewell was bittersweet, but I am sure we all will meet again on a future PODAS workshop.  This photo was made with a Phase One P65+ on an ALPA camera with an extreme wide angle lens (23mm).  It is a another view from the one published the other day.  If you ever get a chance to visit Ireland, you will find a beautiful country with very friendly people.  Put it on your bucket list.

Ireland Is Fantastic

Minard Castle Beach - Ireland

I can’t even begin to tell everything that has happened on this trip to Ireland.  I am having a great time.  The attendees on the PODAS workshop are having a blast and all of us are taking and making great photos.  The image above is a 30 second exposure taken at Minard Castle Beach.  See the Phase One PODAS blog for more details.

Bridia Valley Ireland

Farm Wall - Bridia Valley, Ireland

This is a short post as I have just a few minutes before heading out to the next part of our PODAS adventure in ireland.  This shot was made last night in Bridia Valley, Ireland.  It’s a simple shot made with a Phase One IQ 180 on an ALPA camera with a 23mm lens.  Just works.  Visit for more images.



Unsettled Weather In Ireland

Unsettled Weather, Killarney, Ireland

A new weather term I have learned on this trip to Ireland is unsettled.  The weather will be unsettled.  This picture defines the term unsettled weather.  Rain, sun, clouds and wind all at once.  The workshop we are doing is going extremely well.  You can follow us at  What an excellent start to the day.

Ireland Sunset

Sunset at the Lake Hotel, Killarney, Ireland

Does it get much better?  Nope, tonight was fantastic.  This was shot on my iPhone and I also shot many images from tonight’s dusk extravaganza on my Phase One  IQ180.   Really busy here in Ireland and it will be a great week full of surprises.  Enjoying the country a lot.  Tomorrow we kick of PODAS workshops.  You can follow at my other blog.  I have a lot of editing to do on my return trip home.



Made It To Ireland

Lake Hotel, Ireland

Made it to Ireland.  Today I picked up Steve on of the PODAS instructors and Drew our Phase One support person and we headed to the LAke Hotel where we will be based until Wednesday.  IT’s been an adventurous day as I had to rent a van (one of five) we will be using.  Crazy thing is the steering wheel is on the wrong side and they make you drive on the wrong side of the road.  Pretty crazy and add to that it is a stick shift and you have to shift with your left hand. They call this civilized.  I have another few words for it.  Should make for an interesting week.  This is a simple iPhone shot done of the lake in front of this wonderful hotel.  we bring the big guns (Cameras) out tomorrow. This is a very photo rich area and I am sure we will be capturing some wonderful photography.  I’ll try to post daily but it may get busy.  Days are long and light is good.  More to come.
