I hadn't noticed Finbarr O'Reilly on the wire services before today, but after seeing him send across a series of stunning shots a few hours ago, I definitely notice him now. And wouldn't you know it, his previous work was just as good?
So instead of sitting here trying to analyze whether or not he's trying to make an ironic statement with the blue skies above, I'm planning on sitting back and enjoying the sheer beauty of the shot.
My hat is off to you, Mr. O'Reilly!
