Barren and Snow

Barren and Snow

This private road up to Blarney Castle was covered in snow, the trees were bare and every inch of grass wore the familiar white coat of a recent snow fall.

Taken yesterday morning while the snow fell. It’s -3C here in Blarney this morning and feels even colder! Brrrrr

Blarney in the Snow

Blarney in the Snow

It started to snow this morning in Blarney shortly after 6:30am and it has snowed continually for the last few hours. There’s a nice white coat on the grass and trees but the roads have turned to slush making them somewhat treacherous. They’ll be a lot worse if the snow freezes so I hope it all disappears nice and quickly!

Water Tyre near Inchigeelagh

Water Tyre near Inchigeelagh

Inchigeelagh, Cork, Ireland. June 2012.

After a trip to Gougane Barra where I photographed the usual suspects we stopped in Inchigeelagh and took a walk by the river. Near the end of the walk this tyre hangs from a tree into the river where I presume kids jumped into the water when the weather is slightly warmer than it is now.

This’ll be my last post of 2012 so happy new year! I took over 10,000 photos this year which is a recent record. If only I could find time and motivation to work on more of those photos so they’ll see the light of day..

No Hotel

Moore’s Hotel on Morrison’s Quay, a former hotel that is now up for rent. I’d never been in there when it was a hotel but did meet an interesting man who worked there. The woo was strong in that one!

Edit: mouse over the image. Trying to do a before and after thing. Do you like it?
