The moonlight over Achill Island is wonderful tonight. The photo does not do justice to how it looks in reality
The first photographs I took were on a school trip to Connemara in 1985. I just noticed that it was exactly 30 years ago today that we started the trip.

Climbing one of theÂ Twelve BensÂ on the first day of the trip. To say that we were unprepared would be an understatement!
Chris point the way to an unimpressed Chris. John looks nonplussed.
The wind and rain was quite brutal. Unfortunately, we were nowhere near the top at this point.
This was the top of the mountain. Now looking relieved to a downward stroll.
Engaging in some spiritual reflection on the way down.

Nice weather on the one day that we didn’t climb any mountains.

The final photo after an exhausing and we climb on the last day of the trip.
Some photos I took in the city of Helsinki, Finland in September 2012. Lots of evidence of the transition from summer to the autumn. This is most clear in the photos of the terraces at Latsipalatsi which were mostly deserted. The most beautiful moment was the impromptu classical concert outside Cafe Java on an evening in which I was on my way to see some friends.
