Landscapes, Cityscapes and the

Environment

"Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer - and often the supreme disappointment."

Ansel Adams

Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes.  I mainly take landscapes of the area in which I live as I only use public transport to get to my locations, this is one of the reasons that I like to take images at different times of the day in the same locations and at different times of the year.

 

The light can make such a difference in the way that we see the places around us from the warm glow of a summers evening to the cold crisp clear winter nights that may be the same place but the light can make it seem very different.

One of the two Super moons that visited us in 2015 Niall O'Neill Archer II Originally sited in Marlay Park, Archer II was designed with children in mind. The work deals with the tension and release of energy and specifically expresses a momentary release of energy; frozen time, petrified, solidified. Location Newtownsmith, Sandycove
