The Ruinhunter is back, with a Medieval Adventure.


I cant believe its been over three months since I last posted. I would love to say that I got lost on one of my Ruin hunts and ended up having an adventure, but sadly that was not the case. Thank you to those whom kept in touch, you know who you are and I greatly appreciated it. Between my new found love of Kettlebell training to improve my fitness and a few other issues along the way, I found it increasingly more difficult to get out shooting. But the good news is, ‘I’m Back’, Stronger and raring to go. So you can expect to see a hell of a lot more from me within the next week or so. I have got three months of exploring to catch up on and some really cool and interesting sites lined up to explore and share with you.

So to kick of my fresh start, I would like to share with you a guest post I recently did for my good pal and fellow Irish blogger, Ali Isaac Storyteller. It covers a period of my life prior to my photographyΒ as a medieval re-enactor and hopefully gives you a little taste of what life was like back then and of course the weapons used. For those of you whom dont already know Ali, we have been following each other for some time now, and both share a love for Ireland with its ancient history, mythology and lore. Ali is also quite the acomplished author, with some great works already published. So why not head on over to Ali’s blog and check out my first article for 2015, Combat in Medieval Ireland. I hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to comment πŸ™‚

    I did notice your absence, but that’s not unusual in the blogging world.
    (I am glad that you have a logo of kettle-bells on this page, as I had no idea what they were!)
    Looking forward to seeing some new shots, and glad that your time away was only because you were busy with other stuff.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Thanks Pete, its great to be back, As I was’nt out shooting I did get to try my hand at creating various graphics and logo’s. But now its time to get back too what I really enjoy πŸ™‚

  13. Welcome back Ed, you have been missed…looking forward to your return to ruin hunting adventures.

    Welcome back old friend… You have been hibernating… I actually did a post in your honour around the time you went underground

    • Ah Thanks Rajiv, its been far too long, but I hope to make up for it over the next few months. Have you got a link to that post, sorry Imissed it. I would love to see it πŸ™‚

      • Rajiv says:

        Yeah… I will dig it out and send it to you..

        How is the weather in July? In Ireland.. I am thinking of shooting some ghost spots of Delhi, and it would be cool if you would be interested in shooting some similar places at the same time.

        If July is too hot and sunny, then winter?

        Assuming you think it is a good idea

        • Now your speaking my language. Weather here can be unpredictable, sometimes we get all four seasons in one day, lol. That is a great idea, and I have some great places to explore. How many sites where you thinking off?

  15. Glad to see your face (and photos) again, Ed! I hope you are feeling well.

  16. sariscorner says:

    I already missed you… went over to your facebook once in between and saw a post from Leanne asking how you are and saw that you did answer so I thought I just patiently wait until you are ready! Welcome back!
