Everyone in for a swim!

Everyone in for a swim

We spent this evening at Garrettstown Beach. Wow, what a day. First time swimming in the sea in several years. IT WAS COLD! I’d forgotten just how cold the Atlantic can be.

Fountainstown Beach in April

Fountainstown Beach in April

Who wouldn’t go to the beach on a blustery, showery day? A cold wind blew off the land on to Fountainstown Beach and the sky would change as quickly as anything. Such happened here when the sun peeked through the clouds for a few moments and we were suddenly sweltering. It didn’t take long before we felt first few drops of rain however.

This is the original photo for comparison. I love what I can do quickly and easily with Lightroom!

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!

Waves Crash

Waves crash into the sea wall at Garrettstown Beach, Co Cork a few weeks ago. Beautiful day for a trip down there and the wind blew the sea into violent waves pounding the man made obstructions on shore.

Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr.

Bubbling Water

Bubbling Water

Water flows down to the beach at Fountainstown, bubbling as it goes over rocks and seaweed.

PS. I’ve reduced the cost of all prints by about $50 to $80 for the largest size framed prints. Most of the cost goes towards manufacturing and my markup is only 20% on all prints. Check ’em out in my gallery and of course if a photo on the site takes your interest contact me and let me know!

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.
