At the 2022 Club Open Night

We had a great night at the open night last Thursday. Club members brought along prints they had made for display on the night. Granted, most prints were made before the pandemic when we were meeting “in real life” and had in-person competitions, but it was nice to see some familiar photos re-emerge into the light of day.

Here below are a selection of photos Henry took on the night. It was great to see so many people. I look forward to the weekly meetings!

A Trip to Owenahincha

Members of the club travelled to Owenahincha beach last Thursday night for some seascape photography. Conditions did not look good at first, with a blank cover of fog and white cloud overhead but as sunset approached the skies cleared enough to reveal some colour to be seen.

Thanks to Jayne, Catherine, Henry, Rory and Tadhg for the great photos!

The View from Bell’s Field

The club visited Bell’s Field at the top of Patrick’s Hill where we took photos of the North Side of the city, and waited in hope for the cloud on the horizon to clear to capture the sun setting. Unfortunately, it was not to be, but we had a great time meeting up.

Here are a few photos from Jim Rocks, Pat Kelleher, Tadhg Hurley, Donncha O Caoimh, Rory O Connor, Fergal O’Callaghan, Ger Walsh and Catherine Duggan.

The Spike Island Fireworks

A few members of the club travelled to Cobh on Sunday night to photograph the Independence Day fireworks on Spike Island. Huge crowds gathered around Cobh to watch the display, and it must have been even more spectacular if you were on the island!

Thanks to Fergal O Callaghan, Ger Walsh, Henry O Brien and Donncha O Caoimh for the photos and thank you Henry for the timelapse video.

We got there early to make sure of our vantage point!

A visit to Waterloo

We visited the nearby Waterloo Church and round tower on Thursday night on a beautiful sunny evening, with barely a cloud in the sky. Our objective was to show off the fabulous work the Waterloo Renewal Group have carried out in the area.

Waterloo didn’t disappoint those who travelled, as they got to appreciate the beauty on our own doorstep.

The club couldn’t have got a better evening to see Waterloo at it’s finest.

It’s nights like these you get to see how the Club is part of our community. Capturing and showcasing the moments and places that matter.

Special acknowledgment to the Waterloo Renewal Group, who work tirelessly throughout the year to make the area such a picturesque place that we can all enjoy. So much work goes on behind the scenes.
