Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

I’ve already covered the chemtrails conspiracy but they’re such a frequent and visible part of the sky that I have to shoot them sometimes.

This was taken in Blarney, the trail is from a high flying plane going west to the USA.

Arrangements for the photowalk on the 26th are surging ahead. Pat got in touch to say we can shoot from the roof of the Montenotte Hotel where we meet. The speedboat is organised (max 4 passengers but I won’t be going, stomach is still feeling fragile!) and then a complementary lunch for all photowalkers in the Boardwalk Bar & Grill around noon. See the photowalk post if you’re interested in staying in the hotel on the previous night.
Should be the best photowalk yet!

Innards of the Building

Innards of the Building

The old Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street in Cork is keeping it’s old style and attractive front facade. Phew. I still think it’s odd how a building site juts out behind it though.

PS. The nominations form for the Irish Blog Awards is now open. If you feel it deserves it, I’d be very grateful if you would nominate this blog in the “Best Photoblog” section. Like last year, I’m not going to stick a huge “vote for me” link on the blog and this is the only mention of the awards I’ll make.

Murphy’s

Murphy's

A Murphy’s Stout glass sits on a wall on the island of Cape Clear. That’s not Murphy’s in it obviously. That’d be a strange looking stout!

Happy new year everyone!

Lone plane over Windsor

Lone plane over Windsor

If you live anywhere north of London it seems you’re in the flight path of one airport or another. Windsor, despite having a great big castle, is no exception and a number of flights flew over in the few hours we spent in the town.

Windsor Leaves

Windsor Leaves

Down by the river in Windsor the ground was littered with autumn leaves and served as a perfect foreground for someone else’s castle..

That was a great idea of Matt’s to head down that direction!
