Harry the Westi

Harry the Westi

Harry, a west highland terrier, ran through the waves at Dunworley Beach yesterday. We met his owners, John and Julie, on the beach and our dog Oscar and Harry had a great time playing together! John and Julie are also run Dillon’s Restaurant in Timoleague. Hopefully next time we’re down that direction we can pop […]

Yellow and Fenced In

Yellow and Fenced In

A flower or weed? A weed is only a flower in the wrong place, or so I’ve heard. This was taken at Seaside in Florida during the Automattic meetup there in 2010. Beautiful beach there, horrible humidity in September! This will probably be my last post of the year here so happy new year and […]

Waves Crash

Waves Crash

Waves crash into the sea wall at Garrettstown Beach, Co Cork a few weeks ago. Beautiful day for a trip down there and the wind blew the sea into violent waves pounding the man made obstructions on shore. Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/400s

Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 144mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Bubbling Water

Bubbling Water

Water flows down to the beach at Fountainstown, bubbling as it goes over rocks and seaweed. PS. I’ve reduced the cost of all prints by about $50 to $80 for the largest size framed prints. Most of the cost goes towards manufacturing and my markup is only 20% on all prints. Check ‘em out in […]

Springer at Fountainstown

Springer at Fountainstown

I always have a soft spot for Springer Spaniels. The beaches at Myrtleville and Fountainstown seem to be a favourite haunt of them if our experiences are anything to go by. Here’s a Springer that played with my son Adam at the beach in Fountainstown. They had a great time together! Almost recovered. Stomach is […]

so many people pass me by

Footsteps in the sand speak of many people passing this way. Shot at Garrettstown Beach in October 2006. A very different shot to my previous Footprints in the sand. Remember a few weeks ago I explained how I backed up my photos? Good thing I have backups as my first external drive has possibly died. […]

windswept-daisies

Windswept Daisies

Daisies cling to the sparse earth at the water’s edge in Fountainstown, Co Cork. This was taken just a few metres from my previous Fountainstown picture and was mocking me for over 2 years, sitting in my “Work in Progress” folder, defying my attempts to capture the feeling of that cold October day in 2006. […]

angelas-shop

Angela’s Shop in Fountainstown

Angela’s Shop and Coffee Dock in Fountainstown Co Cork. This shop has been at the beach in Fountainstown for the last 20 years (according to the owner) but I had never ventured inside until today. We were served lovely cups of tea which we enjoyed outside in the blazing sun. I had hoped to shoot […]

A storm brewing at Allihies Beach

Storm clouds gathered over West Cork on the day I took this shot at Allihies Beach. A very different shot to some of the previous shots of this area! It was freezing this day, wind howled and I was wrapped up in a big jacket against the elements. Gives me the shivers just looking at […]
