Junk in the desert

Junk in the desert

I’m not sure what this metal object used to be, but it was sitting in the desert on the ranch in Arizona. I loved the contrasting textures and light and shadows so I had to shoot it!

Trees on the Marina

The trees along the Marina in Blackrock, Cork are bare at the this time of year but the sun shone today as if it was the height of Summer. It was lovely, even with the biting wind.

Shot from the grounds of Pairc Ui Chaoimh (no relation!) while out walking with my sister, my son Adam who slept quietly in his buggy, and my dog Oscar who loved the long walk.

The long road

A road winds into the hills north of Bantry. Yesterday’s photo of the Bantry hills was taken just up the road from here!

I joined Red Bubble yesterday and sold a photo already, although I think it was Pete who bought it as I emailed him last night about it. Nice selection of presentation methods too. Cool.

The rolling hills of Bantry

This is one of my favourite shots from the weekend in Bantry.

Basically I drove up the back roads out of Bantry town, then came to another town and picked the smallest road out of that place before going up a tiny little boithirin with barely room for my car. Wonderful.

Fitzgerald’s Park Bench

A park bench in the lovely and picturesque Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork.

Something awful happened. I went away with my family on a great weekend break on Friday and in the rush and stress I forgot to post some photos for the weekend. I’m catching up!

Blarney on a sunny winter day

This is the centre of Blarney village. It’s a lovely large green, enclosed on all sides by walls and with gates on the north and south sides.

Just goes to show, it’s not always raining in Ireland!
