A pre-Christmas trip over to Limerick in Ireland to see our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren gave my wife Liz and I a few hours to spare before our flight back home from Cork airport.
We were blessed with one of those all too rare days of exceptional winter weather, with hardly a breath of wind and clear blue skies lit by razor sharp sunlight, undiffused by any dust or moisture.
Our chosen location for our pre-flight wait was the seaside town of Kinsale, just a few miles from Cork and a really interesting and lovely place to explore.
It's at this point I was really glad I managed to squeeze a severely reduced camera kit into my RyanAir approved carry on baggage, comprising just a Canon 6D body fitted with my smallest lens, a 50mm f1.4 prime.
And it was this kit that I used throughout our stay in Kinsale to photograph the beautiful scenery, making heavy use of panoramic stitching to achieve the views and compositions I wanted.
Such as this rendition of part of the harbour, captured in the twilight glow following sunset and featuring the highly photogenic waterfront buildings reflecting beautifully in the still waters below.
