Dunmore east is one of my favourite places in Ireland to visit with a camera, its fishing harbour is the countries second busiest and on the day the fish is landed for the fish-market, it is full of life and colour with the boats all being in port.

The day I went down to capture these images I took my then new fuji-film X100 and took many images along the quays, the following gallery I hope captures a sense of this wonderful place to visit and take photographs.

    Hi Nigel. I never have understood why harbors are so peaceful; there are the sounds, of course – birds, water, ships – and the smells. I suppose what I find the most fascinating are the shapes and lines of the ships. Excellent captures, Nigel.

    • Hello Scott ,

      Yes that’s very true, I think it could be because Harbours take you out of your usual world and into another place, a place so full of differences it’s hard to imagine the life the people working there have.

    Lovely photos.
    Makes me wish I had a fishing town close to home. I can almost smell the sea from your photos.
