Drive by sunset

Did a wedding recently with Photographer Lorraine Cryan in the beautiful Kilronan Castle in Roscommon. The castle itself is beautifully decorated in the appropriate era, with antique furniture and big old paintings. It's very cosy and romantic. The location is Magnificent. On a hillside with views of the lake. We were lucky with the weather also and were able to take advantage if the jetty leading onto the lake on the way to the castle from the Church. There were swans, spring flowers and Champagne! A Perfect setting for a perfect day..even with the bride arriving an hour late for the ceremony... now, that's what you call keeping him waiting ;)

This is a shot I took on the drive back to Galway. Hard to keep your eye on the road when distracted by such a lovely sunset.

 A selection from my trip to Rome this year...
 Lovely four legged friend
 Not sure if you get the full effect of the size of this place..  the Romans didn't do things by halves... even taking a bath

Beautiful city... crazy drivers... good fun.

Mambo City Salsa Congress London 2010

 Mambo City is a massive annual salsa event in London. It is held in the Radisson Edwardian Hotel near Heathrow airport... handy for all the international, performers, teachers and us to fly in for the weekend (.. provided a volcano doesn't erupt in Iceland or anything like that... it so nearly didn't happen this year). So, as expected, the performances were world class and here's a few pics from the Sunday night. We laughed, we cried, we wanted to be 'that good'!
 Fun and colourful to elegance and mind blowing flexibility... it had it all

 These guys nearly mad me cry! Just amazing!

 Not everything goes to plan...Wardrobe malfunction for Yamulee! :)
 A few snaps from the party too...

It was soo great to learn from the best and see these amazing performances but mostly catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. I'll definitely be returning next year!

Another from the same shoot. Experimenting a bit in Photoshop at the moment so the edits are slowing getting done from this shoot. Posted more on my flickr if you're interested.
