Everyone in for a swim

Everyone in for a swim!

We spent this evening at Garrettstown Beach. Wow, what a day. First time swimming in the sea in several years. IT WAS COLD! I’d forgotten just how cold the Atlantic can be. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 24mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

The Ratty River

The Ratty River

View of the Ratty River as seen from the top of Bunratty Castle, Co Clare. Despite the cloudy sky temperatures were in the low twenties so it was quite warm, especially after climbing up the many steps to the top of the castle! Oddly enough I couldn’t find this view in a search for the […]

Paul Street in Lights

Another one of those shots I took on the photowalk last week in Cork City. This is the shopping centre in Paul Street. Tesco is obviously the main tenant! Aperture ƒ/14 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 8s

Cherry Blossom under the Castle

Cherry Blossom under the Castle

Cherry blossom trees never fail to make my wife Jacinta gasp as they’re so beautiful. This one is in the grounds of Blarney Castle and I don’t think she knows (or she’s forgotten) it’s there! Many years ago I posted another photo of cherry blossom on the day of our wedding. It’s not quite that […]

Fountainstown Beach in April

Fountainstown Beach in April

Who wouldn’t go to the beach on a blustery, showery day? A cold wind blew off the land on to Fountainstown Beach and the sky would change as quickly as anything. Such happened here when the sun peeked through the clouds for a few moments and we were suddenly sweltering. It didn’t take long before […]

Wilton Road Roundabout

Wilton Road Roundabout

Flyovers are being built over the roundabouts in Wilton and Bishopstown in Cork right now and I’ve been meaning to photograph both building sites before construction was completed. I never imagined I’d be able to shoot the Wilton construction site from a plane! Aperture ƒ/14 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 400 Shutter […]

Hank Wedel and Friends in Charlies Pub Cork

Way back in 2009 we went to see Hank Wedel and other musicians play in Charlies Pub, Cork. It was a great night of music as far as I remember and it’s about time these photos see the light of day! Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/60s

Braving the water at Garrettstown

Braving the water at Garrettstown

The weather for the first 3 and a bit months of this year have been miserable. It’s been raining, and cold and windy and miserable. The sun has poked through the clouds for a few days at a time, or more usually in between rain showers it would brighten slightly before the clouds gathered for […]

Hank Wedel and band in the Castle Hotel, Blarney

Hank Wedel and band at the Castle Hotel in Blarney on Sunday night. The band played a blinder despite the fact there was next to no room for them. These photos weren’t me walking up to them and sticking a camera in their faces, I had to lean back! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

The Camel Riders

The Camel Riders

Here’s Lenny, Kevin and Eoin (l-r) of Polldaddy fame riding on camels in Marrakesh, Morocco a few weeks ago. The ride was through wasteland adjoining a rich neighbourhood of Marrakesh where celebrities have their homes. When you hear that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in town they’re not staying in the Medina, that’s for […]

The St Patrick’s Day Parade 2013 in Blarney

Just a few photos from the short but colourful and noisy St Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney this year. This parade proved more popular than other years as cars parked as far away as the park I live in. I don’t remember that ever happening before! Well done to everyone who took part! Aperture ƒ/7.1 […]
