One of the most amazing things about Ireland has to be the amount of old buildings and monuments scattered throughout the countryside, the visual evidence of Ireland’s complex and often confusing history. It is a pretty frequent occurrence in Ireland to drive past old guard towers, Norman castle, Bronze Age tombs and abandoned stately homes, but unfortunately I don’t often get the chance to stop at these sites to explore and take photos.
Luckily last weekend, some friends were down visiting and on our way to Garretstown Beach, we stopped off at Old Head, Kinsale where there are some old watchtowers. It was the perfect opportunity to use my new, well new to me, Sigma 10-20mm wide-angle lens. I’m not 100% confident with how to use wide-angle lens so hopefully I’ll find some more old buildings to practice taking photos with it.
