Beach in the evening

Beach in the evening Inch Strand in Co. Kerry as the sun shines over the water and the tide comes in.

Orange stripes and white clouds

Orange stripes and white clouds The orange stripes of the road lead off into the Conor Pass, north of Dingle in Co. Kerry. This was taken in September last year and they did a great job of improving the road. The cloud you see is fog that literally rolled in off the hills. One moment […]

Grand Parade on the Lee

Grand Parade on the Lee This is the Grand Parade in Cork, from across the River Lee on Sullivan’s Quay. It was the graffiti on the river wall, “Tek”, that prompted me to shoot this image and I like how it came out. It does lose something in this resized version because of the distant […]

Children at play

Children at play A sign in Fermoy, Co. Cork warns motorists to watch out for kids playing on the road. I’ve seen so many people speed through built up areas these signs mean absolutely nothing to them. Technique: 1. Original image was flat and plain. Background sky was monotonous so I ran it through auto-levels […]

G-BKSP on Inch Strand

G-BKSP on Inch Strand Another shot from our few hours at Inch Strand in Co. Kerry last September. This is G-BKSP waiting on the beach to fly. Unlike the glider I posted earlier I saw this plane fly. Unfortunately conditions weren’t suitable for flying the gliders before we had to head home to Cork.

Clouds over Dingle

Clouds over Dingle Clouds floated by on a glorious September afternoon in Dingle, Co. Kerry. Tourists relaxed on seating on the waterfront. I just love clouds and wide angle shots!

The curious dog

The curious dog While wandering about on St. Patrick’s Day this year I spotted this adorable little dog. I got a few snaps and his owner didn’t seem to mind. The doggy was more than happy at the attention and sniffed eagerly at my lens!

Donkey in the field

Donkey in the field I almost made an ass of myself and forget to post a picture today! You’d be saying to yourselves, “He haw-lways posts a picture every day, where is today’s one?” Never fear, here it is and I’ve run out of donkey jokes so it’s back to normal. Feel free to contribute […]

Lifebelt in the grass

Lifebelt in the grass A lifebelt lay in the grass at a beach on the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry last September. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, beautiful clouds contrasted with the deep blue of the sky and a light breeze blew off the sea. We were just going back to the […]

MEH! No Parking!

MEH! No Parking! Ah graffiti! That most visible of teenage expression on our streets and walls. Anyway, I can’t remember where I took this. It could be one of the side streets off St. Patrick’s Street, but that’s about as vague as “somewhere in Cork” to be honest. Typical Heineken banner flying in the background […]

King of beers

Feeding the horse

Feeding the horse Feeding a horse in a field near Dingle in Co. Kerry. It was a gorgeous beautiful day last September. The sky was blue and dotted with clouds and the sun shone brightly.

Pathway to Gallarus

Pathway to Gallarus If you visit the Dingle Peninsula you must visit the Gallarus Oratory. It’s an early Christian church, possibly built in the 6th century. There is a visitor centre but don’t be fooled into paying the entrance fee. The building is a national monument and the public have a right to see it. […]

EI-128 ready to fly

EI-128 ready to fly Here’s another shot of EI-128. Following my last shot I moved to the other side of the glider to capture some of the beach and hills behind. This was originally shot at an angle to get as much vertical space in but I rotated the image and filled in the sand […]

JCB on the street

JCB on the street A JCB helps to dig up the Grand Parade in Cork. This was shot last September and like the previous couple of shots, this street is completely different now. It’s looking well, although the fancy stonework is begining to lose it’s shine. The chewing gum is sticking, and the fumes of […]
