Feeding The Duck

Feeding The Duck Urban ducks and wild fowl are luckier than their country brethren. People think they are cute and feed them! This is the same duck I posted before at the Crown Fountains, Chicago.

Duck: “Who’s that then?”

Duck: "Who’s that then?" I love when animals and birds look at you with a tilt of their heads as if inquisitive. What is this duck saying? “There’s that guy with the camera again! Why does he keeping taking photos of me and my man?” “What’s that thing he’s pointing at me?” “I wonder if […]

Duck on Red

Duck on Red A duck in Millenium Park, Chicago last May. Bet you’re wondering what is casting that red glow on the water? All will be revealed on Monday after I post a cute picture of it’s mate!

Feed The Birds!

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 […]

His and Hers

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!

Stop! The Birds!

Stop! The Birds! Street lighting and STOP sign pictured on the quays just up from here last Saturday. I wanted to make the stop sign jump out a bit more but didn’t want to force it too much. I do like the leading lines the guide the eye to the top of the pole! And […]

Glendalough Lower Lake

Glendalough Lower Lake Glendalough derives it’s name from the Irish name for the area, “Gleann Da Loch” which roughly translates as “glen of the two lakes”. It was a cold enough day so we only got a good look at the lower lake, but I’m looking forward to visiting again!

Glendalough Bridge

Glendalough Bridge We spent last weekend driving – up to Bray in Co. Wicklow, visited Glendalough, The Sally Gap and promptly got lost a few times on the way to Avoca! On Sunday we returned to Cork, but took a detour via Tullow and Carlow to visit Killkenny. We called to friends in Fermoy and […]

Beached Whale

Beached Whale A beached whale on Garretstown Beach last November. A notice which is being read by the man in the foreground reads that this is a female long finned pilot whale and asks that people do not remove or bury it as it is required by researchers. I was reluctant to post this picture […]

Seaside Wall and Rocks

Seaside Wall and Rocks Down in Oysterhaven of course!

Sunlit Web

Sunlit Web 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!

Swan in Black

Swan in Black Swan on the River Lee last December. I love the quality of the winter sun when it shows. It’s an evening glow almost all day!

A flock of birds on the Lee

A flock of birds on the Lee I love the old style nature of this shot. The fog that day made the far distance disappear and the middle distance was shrouded in white!
