the fiery sky

The Fiery Sky

The Sun shone on the underside of the clouds this morning, lighting them up in a blaze of glory. Moments later the gloom had settled in, the Sun disappeared and an hour later the rain had started. Ah well. Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 180mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/100s

Foggy Sunlight

Foggy Sunlight

The Golden Road

The Golden Road

It’s a beautiful frosty morning so I couldn’t resist the urge to take a couple of shots of this driveway up to Blarney Castle. You may even recognise it from the WordPress theme Twenty Ten. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 88mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/25s

Coliseum Bowling

Coliseum Bowling

I haven’t bowled in the Coliseum, Cork in a long long time. I’m pretty sure the last time I bowled was in Wii bowling, perhaps at an Automattic meetup even! Nice way to spend an hour though.

No Hotel

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 […]

Waterloo Geocache

Waterloo Geocache

There’s a geocache close to where I live near the village of Waterloo. It’s hidden away next to a bridge but I have not been able to find it despite my best efforts. Still, got a photo out of the walk there yesterday.
