Discarded fishing tackle

Discarded fishing tackle

Fishing tackle, nets, and even a gas cylinder rest against a wall near Allihies Beach in West Cork.

I saw all this stuff just sitting there, looking all out of place in a field.

    Hi Donncha,

    I never realised fishing baskets were so colourful.

    Thanks Grannymar! It was a nice surprise to find them in that field. Could be still there I guess, but I won’t be going anywhere near there for quite a while again. Too long a drive for a day trip unfortunately.

    Hi Donncha

    Colours work nice in contrast with the sky :)
    I’ll be passing through Allihies tomorrow, so maybe I’ll be able to locate the baskets as well. Cheers!

    Nice. Donncha, for some reason my photos aren’t appearing on http://irishphotographers.org/, only some kind of placeholder – did I do something wrong??

    I agree with you all that fishing tackle, nets, and even a gas cylinder are so colorful. And with a little bit of creativity we can create another thing from them.

    Love the pictures – especially the ones of beach areas – seems you have a nack for capturing the wave action. Just beautiful. Thanks for the great work.
