"Kinsale Tranquility"


"Kinsale Tranquility"

I made this image about 10 years ago while on a trip with LaDawn to Ireland.  One of our stops was to the beautiful little town of Kinsale, Ireland west of Cork.  Cork, by the way, is home to the famous Blarney Stone - not an easy stone to kiss, by the way.

Kinsale is a wonderful little town of history and beauty.  The town sits at the mouth of the River Bandon which offered lots of photographic possibilities for our trip.  It’s always the colors in Ireland that seem so much richer and vibrant. The colors of the buildings, the water, and all the surrounds radiate that richness on a beautiful day. 

This is a simple landscape photograph but I think it really captures the feeling the little town emanates - peacefulness, tranquility, gentleness, and soft color.  A walk through Kinsale was truly an experience to see moments frozen in time.  I did slightly tweak the colors in NIK's new Viveza 2 software via Lightroom.

Camera specs; Fuji S1 Pro fitted with Tamron 24-135mm lens, F 7.7 @ 1/250 second, ISO 400. Enjoy!  -David

  1. Beautiful image of a beautiful town. After ten years I think you're definitely due a return visit to Cork. Any idea when that will happen?
