We have talked about the book “Whittled Away – Ireland’s Vanishing Nature” twice already. In episode 20 our guest was the author, Pádraic Fogarty, who was also featured in episode 35 where I brought you the recording of his talk under the same title as the book.
Today I talk with Patrick Cross about his photographic project based on that book. We also talk about photography (the outdoors flavour), human impact on the environment and natural history.
After publishing two podcasts back to back in previous weeks today, for something different, I am posting the top 10 outdoors photos that I took in 2019. Most of them have already been posted on my Instagram page, but if you missed some or all of them, or Instagram is not your cup of tea, then here you have it.
This is a no-nonsense review of the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS super-zoom compact camera done from the perspective of outdoors use. Are the features and real-life performance of the camera on par with its price? Watch this video to find out.
A while back I jumped into my car and took the beautiful Ring of Kerry route to meet Madeleine and Greg in their art gallery located on the coast of Iveragh peninsula. Honestly I was stunned by the beauty of Madeleine’s work and you can get a glimpse of it by visiting her website at www.madeleinemariaweber.com. Madeleine and Greg are like our artistic eyes and ears. Madeleine preserves special moments on camera while Greg records the associated sounds. They spend countless hours outdoors, trying to predict the weather to capture nature’s most beautiful spectacles.
