Dingle, Ireland, Midnight

Dingle, Ireland, fog, midnight and kind of a self portrait. It was like I was back in some mystical time. Yep, I'm an American and this summer I had the awesome opportunity to visit Ireland. I loved the fog and how it surrounded me, engulfed me. I felt like I was in another world. A world of Sherlock Holmes. Yes, I know the fictional world of Holmes took place for the most part in London England. But hey, I got a pretty active imagination. Fog, the light from the street lamps, the old buildings, the narrow streets the famous Irish walls all gave me the sense of being in another time.

Snapshots in Rocky Mountain National Park

This Fall I have not had the opportunity to spend much time in Rocky Mountain National Park. Yep, that is a bummer. Nevertheless I have manage to capture a couple of moments that will give the reader a sense of the beauty of the park this time of year. Hope you enjoy the photos. If you are curious the photo equipment I used for these shots is listed here: Cameras: Nikon D800, Nikon D5500 and the Fujifilm X-T1 Lens: Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm, Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm and the XF-35mm 2.0 Since I didn't have much time I elected not to use a tripod. All photos were taken handheld. Thank you for stopping by my blog. In the next couple of days I'll be doing a lot of photography in the Rocky Mountain National Park Area. Hope to have some keepers that I will be able to share on this blog. Photographer: Craig Getchius
