  3. Adam: I find your photos to be, well, spell binding. The art in the image. Wonderful! I have used your Crana River bridge photo as a place in my in the works historical novel. Thanks.

    1. Al, I would love a copy when complete! Glad it was of inspiration! I’m the vice chair of the local historical society, so it would be of great interest!

  4. Hi Adam ,just want to say how amazing your photos are.I was born and raised in Buncrana and your photos bring back such happy memories ,Summer days spent at Porthaw or the Shore front .I do not visit very often now but as I pass through Fahan and see Lough Swilly I still say to myself Im home.Keep up the good work so glad I found you on Facebook.

  5. Hi Adam,

    I saw your photo of Lough Swilly on Facebook and was blown away. What talent! Your mother, Gabrielle, was my best friend growing up and she would be so proud of you. I spent many happy times with her in Derry and Donegal.

    Her love of Inishowen lives on in your amazing photography.

  6. Hi Adam

    I am looking for photos by local photographers for a website for our new business launching in Fanad in 2014 – be really grateful if you could drop me a line with your contact details and I will sent more info.
    Thanks very much

  7. Hi Adam,
    Greetings from Applecross, Perth, Western Australia.
    If your ancestors are also from Innishowen, I’m hoping you may be able to help me find out more about my ancestors who came from the areas around Fahan & Buncranna & Innishowen & a small townland called Umrycam, close to Buncrana. My Great,Great Grandfather was Daniel Clements born 1853 in Umrycam. Son of John Clements born 1810 & Agnes/Ann/Nancy McCairns born 1811 Fahan. Grandson of John Clements & Catherine Campbell both born abt 1780. and Hugh McCairns & Agnes Porter both born Abt 1792.
    Agnes Porter was the daughter of Peter Porter & Agnes Mc Laughlin both born abt 1775. If you or anyone else can help me I’d be most grateful.
    Kindest Regards,
    Christine Robbins nee O’Brien.

  8. Hiya, Adam
    Greetings from Massachusetts!
    Love your photos – would like to buy some prints – how can I get hold of them?

  9. Hi Adam,
    I love your photos of the northern lights. Can you advise what kind of settings are best on your camera please? My photos look like blobs on screen and don’t even show up at all when printed! It’s a skill I clearly need to work on!

  10. Dear Rory, just come back from Fahan was hunting my Bob’s family from 200 years ago, we found a lady called Ann who took us up to John Walker ”what a man The Roosky Man’ his family had the land 200 years ago and still do at the side of the Platt land; my husband is Robert Platt. The view from Roosky is……there is no word to match what to call it except Heaven, his face was a picture like a lost boy ‘ except he’s 62 and long hair biker’.I found your site with your photo’s they are magic and would love to buy some, I know you know Inishowen like the back of your hand can you tekk me if Lough Swilly is the beach at the bottom of Roosky upper Fahan as you have a picture called partial 22o halo, we walked on that beach and many others in the area. I wondered if you have ever taken a picture from Roosky looking down to the sea, I am sorry to go on a bit but have been home from 7.9.2016 we landed at fahan on 2nd Sept our 43 weddind anniversary we didnt want to go home, then I saw your site on the 9th and it all came flooding back you capture life
