I thought I had posted this photo of waves crashing down at Couminole Beach before but no, I have posted several shots of waves at that exposed Atlantic beach but not this one!
I rarely mention WordPress stuff here but if you haven’t upgraded your site to 2.8.4, read this post by Matt. Please upgrade, you’ll be hacked otherwise!

So, next photowalk is on the 26th. It’s a Saturday but this time it’s early in the morning at 10am. We’ll start at the Montenotte Hotel, where we (or some of us) may get access to the roof to shoot a cityscape of Cork City. Bring your wide angle and telephoto lenses!
After that it’s a stroll down the hill to Dillon’s Cross, and then wherever we fancy. We’ll be close enough to the train station to pop over there (although there may be questions of public liability insurance if we go in there as a group unfortunately).
We can head down to the quay then and on towards the bus station and into town or towards City Hall. Wherever.
Will suggested having a scavenger hunt on the walk which is a great idea. Anything else we can do to mix it up a bit?
As I mentioned previously, The Montenotte Hotel is putting on a special deal for us photowalkers:
As a special deal for photographers, the hotel is setting aside 20 rooms for us on the night of the 25th. 17 are discounted with single rooms costing 39 Euro including breakfast and double/twin rooms at 29 Euro/pp, also including breakfast.
After the photowalk we’ll descend on the Boardwalk Bar & Grill for a complementary lunch, and there may even be an opportunity for a select few to head out on a speed boat along the river.
The 3 free rooms are already allocated but that still leaves the 17 discounted ones. If you’re interested, email Pat O Neill at pat @ hotelconsult.ie and he’ll organise the room for you. Don’t bother ringing the hotel.
I guess the complementary lunch was originally intended for those who stayed in the hotel but as the take up of the rooms on Friday night has been so slow I don’t know for sure what’s happening. I’m pretty certain the ride in the speed boat is still on though. I’ll pass on that, I prefer to stay on land!
So, if you’re interested in going on the photowalk please leave a comment here! This doesn’t mean you’re going to stay in the hotel. I don’t want to hear about it. I just want to go on a photowalk. Email Pat if you want to stay at the hotel! (it is a good deal, and the hotel is a gorgeous one!)
If you left a comment on the previous post expressing interest in the walk, please leave a comment here again, just so we have a rough idea of numbers without having to go digging into old posts.
If you don’t want to walk up the hill to the hotel, meet us in town later. I’m not sure how we’ll organise this but it’ll probably be “12 noon at the bus station” or some such arrangement.
