Donabate Walk

Well now, it’s being a long time since my last blogpost. A couple of reasons really but mainly working on other parts of the business and not enough time out in the field taking new images.
Another reason is lack of inspiration or rather too much inspiration.
“Even the most enthusiastic of photographers get the blues. And there’s nothing more depressing than jealousy and a lack of motivation caused by overexposure to the work of others.”

Well my friends that’s me at the moment. But, there is hope. I have discovered a great cure for this particular form of photographic depression. Grab your camera and get out of the house and spend more time developing your style and vision rather than indulging in everyone else’s.
So I did just that last week and went back to where I lived a few years ago. Donabate is a small village on the East coast of Ireland. Jump over to the website here to have a look at more images from Donabate.
It was great to get out on my own with the cameras and just walk around to try a get a composition that works. The image above shows the cliff path form Donabate to Portrane. It had being a clear blue sky all morning and then the clouds started to roll in which is more to my style. While waiting for the right light and composition you have plenty of time to think. And a lot of thinking was done this morning on the cliff path of Donabate.
I’m Back
Full of my own style, vision and Inspiraton.
