Harry the Westi

Harry, a west highland terrier, ran through the waves at Dunworley Beach yesterday. We met his owners, John and Julie, on the beach and our dog Oscar and Harry had a great time playing together!

John and Julie are also run Dillon’s Restaurant in Timoleague. Hopefully next time we’re down that direction we can pop in there for a bite to eat!

Hold Her Steady

A ship tied up at the quay in Kinsale, Co. Cork last year. The vessel was mostly deserted but we saw revellers boarding it regularly, walking around the deck and then off again!

Wet, shiny stones

Wet, shiny stones

The outgoing tide on Fountainstown Beach leaves behind wet stones and seaweed as it retreats.

This is a long exposure shot of one second with my camera resting on one of those rocks!

By the time you read this I’ll be on a plane, in the air most likely, or waiting for a connection in Heathrow more likely. More details to follow.

Tipping Over

Tipping Over

I thought I had posted this photo of waves crashing down at Couminole Beach before but no, I have posted several shots of waves at that exposed Atlantic beach but not this one!

I rarely mention WordPress stuff here but if you haven’t upgraded your site to 2.8.4, read this post by Matt. Please upgrade, you’ll be hacked otherwise!

Windswept Daisies

Windswept Daisies

Daisies cling to the sparse earth at the water’s edge in Fountainstown, Co Cork. This was taken just a few metres from my previous Fountainstown picture and was mocking me for over 2 years, sitting in my “Work in Progress” folder, defying my attempts to capture the feeling of that cold October day in 2006.
