I’ve just updated the header image on the site (you have noticed that I update these every week, right?) and it’s such a great photograph that I contacted the photographer to say I was using it this week and also to get some more information on the event it was taken at.
The photographer in questions is Jonas Voss from Copenhagen, living in Ireland since 2005. Jonas is currently with Google Ireland and works in the online sales and operations division where he strategises and analyses for a living. When he’s not working for Google, he likes to do cool things – one of which is kiting.
This interest led him to the Irish Kitesurfing Associations ‘Battle of the Bay’ competition held this weekend on Dollymount beach, where the photograph used in the header was taken. Have to say it looks like brilliant fun and Jonas has definitely captured the energy of the event in his photoset.
