 One of my all time favourite photos I have ever taken, of the three lighthouses on Wicklow head. This was taken when a few of us photobloggers got a chance to go on a helicopter trip with John Nugent from Newcastle Aerodrome. What an amazing experience it was too. #photoblog #latergram #wicklow #lighthouse #helicopter #newcastleaerodrome #panoramic  First image I ever posted to my photoblog on August the 16th 2003. This was taken with my first ever digital camera, a Canon ixus V3. Stellar Little camera it was too. #butterfly #buddlia #canonixus #latergram #photoblog
 Another photo from 2012 this time of the round tower at Glendalough. Quite possibly one of my favourite places to take photos in Ireland. #photoblog #canonixus #latergram #glendalough #monastery #roundtower  Alpaca, up at my favourite haunt, Kilruddery in Bray, nicely shaved for the weather that’s upon us this weekend. Have a good one folks! #alpaca #kilruddery #kilrudderyhouseandgardens #bray #sunshine

Canon 40d

I adore this camera and have had it a good few years now. I have not felt the need to upgrade yet, I am waiting for the shutter to give in to be honest. While it may not have wifi and other modern things it still takes a superb photo.

Canon Speedlite 430Ex

While I don’t use flash as much as I probably should looking at my photos when I get home, taking photos in RAW format allows me to up the exposure a good bit anyhow. I need to bring it with me a lot more since only a handful of the images you see here have used it.

Canon 28-135mm

My most expensive and most used lens. This lens has proven to be one of the best purchases to date very much acting as my main walk about lens. While it may not be a “L” lens it really does a great job with its wide range of 28-135 mm

Canon 50mm

The cheapest lens available in the Canon range but the one every single Canon camera user owns. Probably the most popular lens out there and most widely used too. With its 1.8 aperture it is widely used as a fantastic little portrait lens. Every camera bag needs one.

Canon 18-55mm

The kit lens that arrived with my Canon 350d which was my first encounter with digital SLR. Its still going strong and I use it a lot still to this day, mainly for wide landscapes and things!

Sigma 70-300mm

OH MY GOD its not a Canon! The Sigma 70-300mm was the second lens I ever bought, come on we all need a zoom every now and again. I don’t use this lens too much at all these days as I do find the focus very very slow, but on a tripod and timer it works a dream!
