Here’s one of my favourite shots that I’ve taken of Salthill from a few years ago when they used to put the big wheel up with the rest of the amusements overlooking the seaside. When the sun was going down there was always some great shots to be taken over the bay when it was still there, but alas now it’s no longer part of the funfair, which is a bit of a shame really. However, it does lend my photo some added resonance as an archival document of times past, so no complaints really.

Here’s a shot that’s closer to home than a lot of my recent posts. This is down at Ladies Beach just off the prom in Salthill, Galway. It was a pretty drab uninspiring day, but this lone figure enjoying the view adds a human element to an ordinary enough landscape that I think adds some interest.
A couple of night time long exposures I took around Salthill that I quite like.
This photo was taken at the height of summer at Blackrock diving board off the prom in Salthill, Galway.
Taken on the beach in Salthill in Co. Galway a couple of years ago, when the funfair used to have a big wheel.
