I'm Irish, living in Wales. I love the landscapes of both countries and try on occasion to get out and capture some of the beauty of nature as well as the manmade. Castles abound within fairly easy reach here in Wales although the weather is something to contend with, as it is when we holiday in Ireland.
My photos vary from those landscapes and castles, to flowers in my own and the more formal gardens I visit. Macros of flowers are quite addictive although boring to the viewer and so I try to control myself!
I use a Sony a350 and I still use my little compact Samsung A7 which is ancient but so handy and not a bad piece of kit which has taken some good shots including some which have been used in publications and websites. (Samsung now gone to the big darkroom in the sky!).
