These are the best pics from Betty’s Birthday Bash, apologies for not getting everyone in but I wasn’t in the best form (ouch) and had to go home early….. I think I got a good bit of what went on, though!
The course over, I’m on my way back to Galway when I come across this landscape. There was no way I wasn’t going to fire off a few shots!
Okay, so last night’s effort wasn’t bad, but I thought I could do better… there’s a road and a lake near Kylemore where the trees make a neat tunnel… I thought that being inside that tunnel would give the best effect, but it turns out I had a sunset on one side and the rising harvest moon on the other, so I was able to go to the lake shore and get something better. Hope you enjoy.
City of the Tribes Kayak Race is held annually on the corrib river flowing through the heart of Galway City. This was the 11th year that the race has been held. I took to the water in my own kayak in an effort to capture the competitors as they competed in the 2, 10 and 15 kilometer courses.
Please note! These are the best of the images from the day- all of the (good) shots taken on the day are available to view & buy in my print shop!
On 26th of August, Bar 8 in Galway had a Tokyo Nights theme night, complete with ParaPara dancers, some cosplay and lots of drinking!

I finally finished my Japan slideshows and presented them at Galway Camera Club. Here are the videos!
Part 1 of my Japan trip- a few pics from over Siberia and Japan, then from Day 1 in Shinjuku
Some Day Shots from my week in Tokyo
Night Shots from my Japan trip – Tokyo Tower , Shinjuku and a bit of Harajuku
At the start of my southward Journey I stopped off at Kawaguchiko for some R&R in a real Ryoukan and some Fuji Photography. I froze my *butt* off waiting around long enough for the clouds to clear at sunset
Kyoto and Nara were my next stop, I spent four days in Kyoto and one in Nara, but was a bit unlucky with the weather…. still, I think I got some good shots out of it.
Next stop was Hiroshima, but before seeing the center of Hiroshima, I decided to do Miyajima first… spectacular!
I really enjoyed exploring Hiroshima, I wandered around the peace park and the riverside during the cherry blossom parties and just soaked in the atmosphere…
Only one evening in Nagasaki (on my way to Yakushima), so I spent it at the top of one of the surrounding mountains getting some night pics. Again, butt refrozen :D
My final call before heading for Tokyo for final farewells to my friends.
