Little Bunny

Each Spring for the past two years wild rabbits visit our garden at home. They’re really cute, and thankfully I don’t have any flowers or veg to tempt them!

Feed The Birds!

This was taken yesterday in my back garden. We had some beautiful light after a very dull start to the day and I took advantage of it.
I used the Canon 75-300 IS lens but the bird feeder is about 3m away from my backdoor so I can’t get as close as I’d like. This is a very close crop of a much larger image. The original crop is 1188×1188 pixels but I really like how this came out.
There is purple fringing on the highlight around his mouth, and in his eye but it’s not too bad thankfully!

His and Hers

Two ducks in the bird sanctuary outside Blarney. I took this back in May 2005 on the same day as this one.
This one’s for Matt!

Maxol Petrol Station, Blarney

This is the Maxol Petrol Station in Blarney. This is a long exposure shot and I just managed to get the Cork-Blarney bus in the frame!

The Signs in Blarney

The signs in Blarney always point towards a B&B!
This bunch of signs do anyway. Right at the end of Station Road there’s a pole with signs to about a dozen B&Bs! If you ever need somewhere to stay in Blarney you shouldn’t have trouble finding accomodation!

Link of the Day

If you haven’t read any of the The Digital Journalist yet then the January issue is a good place to start! I found dispatches for Iraq and Bolivia rivetting and scary and exciting.
In a compeltely different way, Bill Pierce’s memories of the late Michael Evans will stir your heart. He did a great job writing about his friend.

Sunlit Web

On a foggy morning a web will sparkle in the ambient light because of the moisture in the air.
I spent an inordinate amount of time crouched down shooting this dead bush!

Santa’s on his way!

Tonight Santa visits as the Christian world celebrates the birth of Jesus over 2000 years ago.

Links of the Day

Don’t go to bed reading a photographic book, you’ll get up again to “try out” the new techniques you read about.
