Square Deal

Square Deal

Square Deal Interiors where we bought several items of furniture recently. Absolutely huge showrooms and nice helpful staff. Prices seemed reasonable too, even if they did take a big chunk out of my credit card. Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/125s

Rain on the River

Rain on the River

Rain falls on a river in a town in County Clare while we were stuck in a traffic jam. I used to know what town this was taken in but now it’s a mystery. It did have a very distinctive walled off area right in the middle of the river though. Anyone recognise it? Aperture […]

Water rushes in

Waves crash and water rushes in on the rocks at Couminole Beach in County Kerry. Shot almost 2 years ago on Slea Head!

Keeping the Chicks Alive

Keeping the Chicks Alive

2 chicks are fed by a parent just outside the window of my home office here in Blarney. The chicks have been there all evening and I just looked out again and they’re still there. Unfortunately the neighbour’s cat, Patches, saw them too and is keeping a vigil close by. We saw the parent bird […]

The Worldwide Photowalkers

The Worldwide Photowalkers

41 had signed up but some couldn’t make it unfortunately. In the end, a more manageable 23 turned up. Here’s most of us as pictured afterwards in The Old Oak bar where we went for drinks and sandwiches. I had a great time today, I think everyone else did too by their reactions. The day […]

Little Daisies Everywhere

Little Daisies Everywhere

They’re not daisies are they? They look like them, but they were for sale in a garden centre and I’m sure they wouldn’t be so bold as to offer the common daisy for sale? Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 24mm ISO 200 Shutter speed 1/60s

Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

The big wheel, as seen from The Atlantic Pond outside Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork. Sort of fitting that I post a photo of a fairground ride on the day that Michael Jackson is laid to rest. BTW – there are still places on the Cork photowalk on the 18th. It’s less than 2 weeks […]

Autumn Trees

Beautiful golden leaves adorn the trees in Burnham Beeches near London. Last year I posted a photo of the same trees in Burnham Beeches and this version has been sitting in my TODO folder ever since, waiting for me to work on it. Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 400 Shutter […]

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Beautiful, pretty pink flowers in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork in July 2007. I already posted a photo of these flowers but this one was sitting in my TODO box for so long it had to see the light of day! Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 200mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s
