St.Patricks Day 2021 (March 17th for those who are not familiar) saw a return to shooting the night sky for me. Between Covid and lockdowns, 2020 was not exactly fruitful for image making.

I was starting to crack up with these lockdowns..so when clear skies presented themselves, I grabbed my gear and headed out to the nearby coast so that I could spend the night under the stars and the splendor of the universe.

Hopefully 2021 will see these lockdowns being set aside sooner rather than later...as I have photos to take 😁.

2020 was not a great year for photography for obvious reasons. Covid lockdowns were not exactly conducive to traveling around and producing new works. Apart from a handful of new work during 2020, I think I will be digging into the archives for my first posts of 2021.

To start off, here is one from 2014. A simple shot of some straw bales in a field accompanied by what was and still has been one of the best sunsets I have witnessed and been able to capture.

This was one of those occasions where I was traveling to one location with a particular shot in mind, and then after seeing the straw bales in the field, I reversed my car back up the road, pulled outside the field and then was treated to a glorious display in the sky.

This image was captured several weeks ago on what was possibly my last Milky Way Core shoot of 2020.

2020 has not afforded many Milky Way sessions, mainly either because clear nights falling on the wrong moon cycles or more notably due to the Covid19 lock-down restrictions that were imposed back in March. So needless to say, that I was super excited to be back out under the stars and the night sky again.

This location certainly had a bit of eeriness about it. Standing out on location under the dark of the night sky and surrounded by rustling bushes, horses/cattle making noises and other weird random noises all made for an unsettling experience on one hand. But that unsettling feeling was totally trumped by the sense of pure awe of both standing there next to these old castle ruins that have stood the test of time from when they were first erected during more ancient times here in Ireland as well standing under the ancient lights of the Milky Way galaxy above.

This image was captured several weeks ago down at Goat Island near Ardmore in County Waterford, Ireland.

Was glad to be back out under the stars and the night sky again. Last Milky Way shoot was back on March 29th 2020.

Although the Milky Way core was drifting and setting into the light pollution coming from Youghal on the east coast of County Cork, I was still happy with the overall lighting and feel of the image.

When you can't avoid light pollution, you simply have to work with it and incorporate it as best as you can.

First sunrise in a long time, somewhat caused by the whole Covid debacle but more likely due to my hatred of climbing out of bed early.

Where else to venture for my first sunrise attempt in ages to the always interesting, beautiful and close to home location that is Ballycotton along the east coast of County Cork, Ireland.

Spent a great morning there with another photographer and friend of mine. The light was fleeting to be fair on that morning. It was mostly cloudy and looked like there was going to be no chance of any colour bursting through but then a raincloud came along and changed all that.

A few minutes of great light but that is all that is needed.
