Way Out West

This time last week I was in West Cork with Ben, wandering around Glengarriff and Garnish Island, after shooting some stills at Sarah‘s amazing wedding (can’t wait to share those).

Some pics from our trip to the island below. Ben and I suffered from some serious reverso lens envy – he was mad for my 100mm Macro (and has some beautiful shots to prove it), while I kept borrowing his super wide 20mm. Because of that, and some low battery issues, there was a lot of camera and lens swapping, and a high chance that some of these photos were taken by him!

Garnish Island, by the way, is incredibly pretty and boasts some gorgeous tropical gardens, a Martello tower, an amazing view, and  plenty of seals lounging on the rocks around it.

      Thank you 🙂 It’s fun seeing what we each chose to shoot and process, I’m enjoying flicking back and forward! I love the shot of the little boats you took with the 100mm.

    […] Then once we were in Glengarriff and had a bit of time, we hit Seal Island (I wanted to include a link to Google Maps here, but there’s too little coverage of West Cork, it’s pretty off the grid). Nathalie got some stunners. […]

      Thank you very much Samantha! Hope you do indeed grab an SLR (I’d go with a second-hand SLR and new lenses) and enjoy your photo adventures 🙂
