The Lough Daffodils

The Lough Daffodils We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot. Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!

Charity Daffodils

Charity Daffodils Here are the daffodils my wife picked up when she gave a nice crisp €50 note to the Irish Cancer Society collector in Blarney this afternoon. A few days ago I offered to give the proceeds from the sale of a photo to charity plus €50 of my own money/. Nobody splashed out […]

Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day Daffodil Day is fast approaching on Friday so I thought a photo of these gorgeous flowers was appropriate. Daffodil Day is when cancer charities all over the world raise a large portion of their funds by selling daffodils. If you see an official seller please support a good cause and give generously. I […]

Mountain Daffodil

Mountain Daffodil A daffodil in the garden of a house in the hills north east of Bantry Bay. I drove up there last Saturday morning and stopped when I saw the open gate. Wandering in the driveway I took a few shots of the view and then noticed these daffodils growing. I prefer the daffodils. […]

Call me Spike

Call me Spike Frost covered weeds still manage to grow and thrive in the cold. I saw this wonderful speckled white plant growing from a ditch yesterday morning and it looked very ominous. When I converted it to black and white I saw myself looking at something abstract, possibly evil, something that could be microscopic […]

The frosty daffodil

The frosty daffodil This morning was a frosty one. My breath made clouds in the air and a light breeze carried away the warmth in the shadows. Thankfully there was a lovely sunrise that more than made up for the cold. Down at the end of our park there’s a small green area, and this […]

Daffodils in the sky

Daffodils in the sky Lovely bright daffodils to brighten up your gloomy November Monday morning! This was taken way back on March 18th this year on the same day I shot these daffodils! The image has been sitting in my WIP folder for months but after my gimp lomo post I decided to post this […]

The Yellow Rose

The Yellow Rose A yellow rose in Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork. I made this photo a few weeks back and it had just rained, leaving nice little droplets of water on the delicate petals of the flower.

They’ve done a great job in the park where very nice layouts of flowers can be seen over by the museum. Presumably with the intention of avoiding the kids congregated at […]

Splendor in the grass

Splendor in the grass It’s so wonderful to see small little daisies growing up all on their own surrounded by grass everywhere. When the sun is shining and there is nothing to do except eat a nice picnic and stroll by the beach I’m in heaven. I shot these bright little daisies down in Garrettstown, […]

Daisies in the ruins

Daisies in the ruins Boarded up windows, grey walls, overgrown vegetation. It can only be an Irish hospital right? This is the final picture in my Old Hospital series. Beautiful – Lough Gill, 2

Daisy drops of rain

Daisy drops of rain Rain drops show on the white petals of a daisy that struggles amid the ruins of an old hospital building. I wonder if that building is still there? I’ll have to go look someday.
