Mist Rolling Over The Ox Mountains in Sligo
The Ox Mountains and surrounding countryside during an early morning winter fog in Sligo, Ireland. The sun was lighting up the low fog and creating this beautiful, mystical look across the landscape bringing out some intense greens and yellows.
London Thames Flood Barrier In Summer
This photograph of the Thames Barrier in London was taken in the afternoon during the summer giving these high white clouds against a brilliant blue sky. It was the perfect day and a lucky shot as it was raining again later that afternoon! The Thames Flood Barrier was built in 1982 to protect London from predicted floods, however it's a beautiful piece of architecture and testament to art and practical construction working symbiotically together.

Slish Wood - Forest Landscape
A waterfall deep in Slish Wood, Sligo, Ireland. This is in the heart of the Ox Mountains and heavy rains create waterfalls throughout the forest. I was lucky and the sun broke through the trees to create some backlight for this photograph on an otherwise very cloudy day. Taken with a tripod and a wide angle lens.
The shadow from the cairn on Knocknarea stretching over the mountain top towards Ben Bulben on the horizon. Taken at sunset creating some very low lighting and shadows.
The Glen - Sligo
The Glen is on the Coolera Peninsula in Sligo, Ireland. It's on the south face of Knocknarea mountain and is a deep yet narrow canyon running through the limestone bedrock. A forest grows on either side of the top of the cliffs giving a surreal sense of being deep in the earth looking up at the world. This is a wide angle shot of the trail that leads through it.
Warm air moving up the coast of France from Africa and Europe collides with cold air moving down from the Arctic creating spectacular cloud formations in London, England. I took this picture from a the 13th floor of an apartment complex after a summer storm at sunset.
Storm Clouds With Rainbow
Sligo can get some very extreme weather on the edge of the atlantic and this is a great example of that. A rainbow breaks out of the storm clouds to the right while blue summer skies are dominant to the left.
Glendalough monastary sits in the valley of the two lakes in Wicklow, Ireland which is part of the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It's one of Ireland’s most impressive monastic sites and was founded by St. Kevin in the 6th Century. This photograph was taken in summer and shows a view of the monastery against a yellow field and a green forest background.

This is the Glencar Waterfall although not the normal photograph usually taken of it. Over time an incredible example of a stalactite has formed behind the waterfall as water has dripped over the lip. This has taken thousands of years to form and is a very unique part of the fall, adding to it's character.
Carrowmore Tombs At Sunset
Carrowmore in Sligo, is one of four major passage tomb cemeteries in Ireland with over 30 prehistoric and neolithic tombs including dolmens and burial chambers. Being surrounded by these monuments to the past can only give you a sense of awe and photographing them is a very special experience. This one of the main tombs as the sun sets with long shadows across the field it sits in and a beautiful blue sky in the background.
Acropolis - Sicily
Selinunte was an ancient greek city on the south coast of Sicily that was at it's peak in 409BC. Now the archaeological site is a major tourist attraction. This is a photograph of one of the temples in the hills surrounding the site against a rich blue sky with high white strata clouds in summer.
