In Love Again

Here is your SkyWatch image.

I'm in love again and this time it's a camera.
I took a few day holidays as the children are on a mid-term break in school. I sent tem to the mother-in-laws for a couple of days. So myself and the good wife went for a walk in the Wicklow Mountains. Lough Dan is one of my all time favorite places to walk and take photos. We packed the lunch and set off on our walk. The weather didn't look the best on the drive down to the mountains but when we got there it was wonderful. In a way I was happy not to have all my backpacks and tripods with me. I did however bring my compact digital Canon G10.

And here is the "in love again" part. What a little treasure of a camera. The results are wonderful from this little camera. The above image is one such image. It shows the pathway down towards Lough Dan itself. Hand holding with one hand and a ND filter in the other. The light was changing all the time on the walk. I have a wonderful selection of image from the walk and some lovely portraits of Mrs Mononeil.

I have this camera a while now and not used it in a long time. It's back again in my camera bag and will be used a lot more from now on when we ( the family ) go out for walks at the weekend. I will post more of the images taken from the walk next week.

Have a good friday and weekend.

  2. Stunning shot, Colin! I know what you mean, I fell in love with my new camera, too! Look forward to lots more!

    Have a great weekend!


  3. Fantastic shot! Super!!! Glad you had such a wonderful day.

    I have been debating an expensive ND filter, however your method may be better. I am not familiar with the Canon G10, however I love my Sony HX1 when carrying heavy equipment isn't feasible. Thanks for the info.

  4. I'm in love with a canon too. That shot is powerful.

  5. Wonderful shot and capture from your walk.

  6. Lovely light and wonderful texture on the stone wall. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Nice cloud effects, texture and light without any colour, nice.

  8. You are a very talented photographer. Keep on walking and taking those fantastic shots.

  9. I love it... I dream of taking something like this.
