TITLE: "Wrecks Along The Coastline Of Ireland."
For the last few years I have been visiting various shipwrecks along the coastline of Ireland.
I chose to present them in monochrome to really bring out the wonderful textures of the rusted, decaying structures.
I have been stunned by how much most are deteriorating in the short space of time between return visits, especially if there have been recent storms.
The "Irish Trader" in particular has been wrecked since 1974 and was relatively intact up to my first visit around 2012. There then followed a huge storm over the winter of that year and when I returned the following spring, it was almost un-recognisable.

Photography has been my passion for nearly thirty years.
I shoot mainly landscapes and my favorite location is along the entire west coast of Ireland where the weather and light can change by the hour as storm fronts roll in off the Atlantic ocean.
I normally shoot wide angle, from a low viewpoint and always seek out strong foreground interest.
When converting to monochrome I usually use NIK Silver Efex Pro as I love it's versatility.
