RESTORATION WORK WAS UNDERWAY AT THE TIME
A few days ago I published my most recent photographs of the Boyne Viaduct and afterwards realised that I had a selection of photographs of the structure before the restoration had been completed in 2015.
The EU-funded refurbishment of the Boyne Viaduct, won the Historic Structures Restoration Award at the Railway Heritage Awards, presented at a ceremony in London in 2017.
I cannot believe that this October  was my first time in Drogheda since 2012 and back then I used a Sony NEX-7 camera. On October 16th, 2013, Sony changed the game in cameras and for photographers forever. The launch of the Sony Alpha 7 and Alpha 7R were Sony’s first mirrorless-style consumer cameras to have a full-frame sensor. Previously, these large sensors were only found in professional DSLR or expensive rangefinder cameras, until Sony made the decision to feature the sensors in smaller and lighter cameras. I should mention that I still use the NEX-7.
