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 […]

Allihies Countryside

The road to the beach at Allihies in West Cork branches in two a few miles from there. This was taken on the scenic route where the road comes out between two hills and you see this beautiful expanse of hills and grassland spread out before you. It’s quite a sight. My poor photo does […]

Field of flowers

Floods, hailstones, cold. Another typical Irish summer but thankfully it’s nice ad bright here in Blarney. Here’s a shot I took down at Allihies in West Cork back in April. It’d be perfect if the flowers were more in focus but I still love it. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO […]

Discarded fishing tackle

Fishing tackle, nets, and even a gas cylinder rest against a wall near Allihies Beach in West Cork. I saw all this stuff just sitting there, looking all out of place in a field. PS.

Rough Weather ahead at Allihies

Allihies in West Cork is a beautiful beach surrounded by beautiful scenery but on this day in February clouds hung over our heads, the sun broke through momentarily but the seas still lashed at the coast and I almost got drenched while shooting on the pier there. Love this shot though, well worth braving the […]

Allihies Beach

I look outside now and see the hazy cloud and rain that has descended on Cork and wonder if I was really at Allihies beach and saw the fluffy cumulus cloud stretching off into the distance. It seems like a another lifetime. Today my wife, Jacinta, and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. It’s a […]

John Sullivan

This is John Sullivan, a man we met near the beach at Allihies in West Cork a few days ago. He’s quite a remarkable man, especially as he will be 91 in June. I’ll be very happy with myself if I’m as fit and healthy as he is when I celebrate my 91st birthday! The […]

No moo room

Cows gather in the shed against the howling wind and cold at Allihies. No room for any more though! Aperture ƒ/4.5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 22mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/30s

Going Overboard

Going Overboard Bertie’s going overboard today, hopefully. As I write this Bertie Ahern is speaking and it sounds like a resignation speech. I haven’t heard an apology for lying under oath and deceiving the public yet however. Unfortunately we’re all going to forget this by the next election. Hopefully the other parties will make hay […]
