Welcome to our website

This is intended to serve a number of purposes. Most immediately, it will record our time in Ireland, starting in April 2014 – see the BlogIreland menu above for more-or-less regular updates. Secondly, it will serve as a gallery of some landscape photos taken on previous trips abroad, and possibly on future trips as we take opportunities to explore Europe from our Dublin base. Thirdly, there is Pip’s page which was originally used as part of her consultancy work. Note that with her role at Dublin City University being full time, Pip will not be continuing with any consultancy work in the meantime.

The banner photo above is in recognition of our joint Scottish heritage and was taken by Bruce in May 2011 at sunset in the village of Duirinish, looking out to the Isle of Skye. The photo was taken on a Sony NEX 3 with a focal length of 82mm (35mm equiv.), a shutter speed of 1/320, at f/9.0 and ISO 200. It used the camera’s Panorama setting.
