Carefree on the beach Shoes off wandering along the beach, the glow of a setting sun and nothing to do but enjoy the moment. Taken in Garretstown last month on a warm Autumn day.
Glistening Blackberries Blackberries glisten in the bright sun of an August afternoon in Co. Cork. I love blackberry jam, blackberry tarts, blackberry crumble. I don’t like picking the fruit, but I have many childhood memories of wandering country lanes with my family looking for the best fruit for my mother to make delicious jam. Nowadays, […]
Wet Wellow Web Early in the morning dew coats everything and water droplets on spider webs glisten in the rising sun. I’m not sure where this was taken, it was probably somewhere in Blarney but it was taken with my Panasonic FZ5 last September and I only copied it off a few days ago!
A resident of Alcatraz Alcatraz Island is now inhabited by the birds and I presume security staff but I think the birds have a better life with all the tourists around hefting lunches and sandwiches from the mainland. Imagine the scene, me and a few of the others scrambling to get a shot of this […]
Currykippane Cemetery It’s Halloween, that time of year that the souls of the dead rise up, goblins and monsters are abroad and witches fly about. I’ve already had my barm brack and even got the ring, but tonight is when kids go “trick or treating” looking for treats and avoiding tricks! I made this image […]
Dog on the beach Oscar ambling along on the beach at Garretstown in Co. Cork. He never liked the beach, there’s just too much dirt and gravel and sand and just plain yuck, but he had a great time that evening. I don’t think Shih-Tzus are the most adventurous of dogs! Compare this picture with […]
Rusted and abandoned An old oil drum stands on the quay at Ballycotton rusting away as the exposed metal is beaten down by the elements. Technique: I increased the saturation of the reds to bring out the rust of the drum. I desaturated other colours so the drum would stand out. I then duplicated the […]
The Golden Bay Bridge in San Francisco The Bay Bridge in San Francisco all lit up at night. The lighting on the bridge casts a golden glow over the water that is beautiful to watch and photograph. More on Wikipedia. Niall Kennedy walked with myself and Bryan Veloso around the Ferry Building on the night […]
The lone daisy A solitary daisy grows in front of a small house in Fountainstown. This was an interesting photo for me to take. I spotted the daisy while walking out the road but I didn’t stop to shoot it until returning. I’m glad I remembered it! I’m really happy with the way this came […]
Have bike, will travel As you can imagine, I was quite tired by the time I got to San Francisco! Picture above was taken just down from my Bird flying by photo. I know there are lots of awkward lines in this shot but the line of the Golden Gate Bridge is just about horizontal. […]
