Location, Location, Location…

As you may have guessed from my photos, I love taking pictures outdoors. I am always looking for new places to photograph, and locations for photo-shoots.

With a very hectic work and family life, I need places which are near to home, about an hour’s drive is about my limit, especially if I bring the kids as their patience runs out in about half that!

Yesterday I visited the picturesque village of Moone in County Kildare. The girls had a great time in the playground there, and we also visited the Moone High Cross, a place I’veĀ  heard quite a lot about since we moved to the area eleven years ago, but I had never gotten around to visiting.

Both the village and the High Cross are bursting with photographic opportunities, so I’ll definitely be heading back that way again soon.

Rathwood Forest Trail

The Photo-shoot I had planned at Rathwood, near Tullow, County Carlow, had to be canceled due to my model having injured herself. Get well soon Sarah.

Never having been to the location, I decided to go anyway and drag along the rest of the family. I really wanted to get a feel for the place and have a look around to see whether or not it was right for the photo-shoot I have in mind.

I wasn’t disappointed.

There were a lot of lovely backdrops on The Forest Trail and I got some lovely shots of the kids. I can’t wait to get back there for a serious photo-shoot. I’m also looking forward to exploring some of the deeper forest trails, a bit more off the beaten track!
