    Title or Location: Grand Canal Docks, Dublin 2
    On the way into the Bord Gais Energy Theatre to listen to a concert, I noticed the lovely evening light shining over the buildings and the Dock and couldn't resist taking a couple of pictures. I only had my camera phone with me, so that's what I used - Samsung Galaxy S22. I was quite pleased with the result. Hope you like it!

    Title or Location: Herbert Park, Dublin
    The cherry blossom trees in Herbert Park are beautiful every year. They came into bloom this year just in advance of the approaching "Storm Katherine" which they were not expected to survive. I managed to photograph them ahead of time and really like this soft light at sunrise. I used my Canon R6 and 70-200mm lens. Very little editing was used in post - just some dodging and burning to amplify the shadows.

    Right before the rain came, I got a chance, to witness the morning magic.It is really well worht it by giong out with the camera, even when the forecast looks somewhat ''bad'' . Light before the rain is dramatic ( and others usualy stay home when forecast doesn't look great ), so there is more of a chance, to capter something ''unexpected'' Canon R6 with EF-R variable ND adaptor and EF 16-35/4 L IS USM16mm 1.6sec f/11 ISO 503 Stop Reverse gradual ND filter

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

    Title or Location: Cremorne Point
    Cremorne Point is always a favourite choice to capture the southerly sunsets with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the frame. This isn't a long exposure shot but a motion blur added to the water in post production.

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    Title or Location: Curly dick Rd ,Meadow flat
    It's a famous road for Golden Poplars, but I wanted to capture the Milky way passing over trees that have lost their leaves. it was early evening, but the Milky Way was already high up, so I quickly took some photos and returned to Sydney.
