The Giant's Causeway, Co. Antrim

4 o'clock in the afternoon on 29th December, almost dark but never to late for a set of pictures, despite the lack of light. The wind blows me away, my tripod is broken, and I can barely hold the camera still.

Late Autumn Colors

Beautiful autumn colors, in the middle of Christmas Holidays, on the Wicklow Mountains. In the distance, the little villages of Curtlestown and Curtlestown Upper.

Sleeping Giants

This wasn't my idea. On that beautiful sunny December afternoon, we were walking along the quays in Howth. At some point, another photographer was taking pictures into the sun. I noticed him throwing questioning looks at my camera. I didn't know why, but my wife told me later, that he was also using a Pentax. Wow, another Pentaxist, we are so rare. So he was actually curious about the lenses I was using. It was funny, just like two motorists "measuring" their equipment. Anyway, he got a great idea of photographing boat silhouettes. Thank you!

Winter Evergreens

Sometimes the light plays funny games with our eyes. It's winter, and very cold actually, especially for Ireland. And being this lucky, getting a beautiful sunset light in the early afternoon, I had to take shots of those trees. They are some of the forever green Powerscourt Garden trees.

St. Anne's Cathedral, Belfast

The organist in the bottom of this picture made it all worth it. If this image could talk, it would sing to you.

Deadliest Catch - Irish Fishing

I'm a regular visitor of Howth Marina. But this was the first time i saw this many fishing boats. And their colors. Sunny weather and stand still waters. Everybody is resting.
