Cape Clear Photo Course

I'm just back after giving a week long beginners Course on Wildlife Photography at Cape Clear Island, County Cork.  The course was organised by Birdwatch Ireland and based in the Bird Observatory building in the harbour.  We were extremely lucky with the weather, considering the rest of the country was engulfed in high winds and heavy rain. We had clear sunny days, but the wind was high, keeping birds and insects low under cover.  Never-the-less we had a very enjoyable week and all the participants managed to get some excellent results. For those of you who missed the opportunity to attend this course you will have another chance, as we will be running a second course at the end of August this year.  For further details and booking forms please take a look at the following link;  Here are some of the photos taken during the last week.
