Going Overboard

Going Overboard Bertie’s going overboard today, hopefully. As I write this Bertie Ahern is speaking and it sounds like a resignation speech. I haven’t heard an apology for lying under oath and deceiving the public yet however. Unfortunately we’re all going to forget this by the next election. Hopefully the other parties will make hay […]

Spectators on the beach

Spectators on the beach The hang gliding crowd attracted a bit of a crowd on Inch Beach in 2006. Well, it was late September and there wasn’t that many people on the beach in the first place, so 2 people isn’t so bad, eh? Hunger got the best of us and we watched as a […]

The sandy beach at Couminole

The sandy beach at Couminole I photographed the beach at Couminole on the Dingle Peninsula back in 2006 when there was a beach there. There was no sand to be seen during repeated visits there in September 2007. I had actually quite forgotten I had taken this so it was nice to see the lovely […]

The Happy Shih Tzu

The Happy Shih Tzu Our Shih Tzu, Oscar, received a long overdue grooming today. Here he is on the 10th of December 2007. Can you imagine how much more hair grew since then? Yes, this photo is very similar to this beach photo. They were taken moments apart. I’m running low on prepared images, it’s […]

Soft golden sunset

Soft golden sunset Sunset over Garrettstown Beach. PS. spammers are using the inphotos.org domain to send spam again which is why this site was down for most of the day. You should see the incoming traffic graph because of all the bounced messages. I have now shut down Postfix, and redirecting email to through my […]

Shih Tzu on a sunset beach

Shih Tzu on a sunset beach Our Shih Tzu Oscar on Garrettstown Beach again. We forgot to bring a ball with us but Oscar went running after anything I threw. He never did catch the object. I guess there’s nothing quite like a tennis ball eh? I love the evening sun on him in this […]

Holiday Caravan

Holiday Caravan A holiday caravan near a beach on the Dingle Peninsula. This caravan has been in the same spot for at least the last 2 years, and probably longer. I wanted to shoot it for quite a while but it wasn’t until I converted this shot to b/w that I was happy with it.

The sun sets on 2007

The Sun sets on 2007 The final day of the year 2007. It’s cloudy and misty and rain is in the air. Very mild for this time of year actually. 2007 was a mixed bag for many people. It was a year of extremes – joy and sadness in equal measures, but life changing for […]

Blue sky on a dull day

Blue sky on a dull day Today is dull, there’s a glimpse of blue out, it’s cold, there’s a chilly wind blowing. Blue sky and fluffy clouds in Kerry while on holiday. Great memories.

Waves at Couminole

Waves at Couminole The waves crash on to the beach at Couminole on Slea Head, Co. Kerry. Standing where I was when I took this image was scary. Huge waves lifting up water to head height before crashing down mere feet in front of me. Is that Skellig Michael in the background?

Shadows on Slea Head

Shadows on Slea Head Shadows from the broken clouds above play over the landscape on Slea Head in Co. Kerry. Every moment was a different photo until the rain eventually caught up with us!

Through the long grass

Through the long grass Hard wind worn grass grows by the beach at Wine Strand in Co. Kerry. I think this is perfect in black and white. The blue sky was amazing but the light and shadow of the grass stands out against the uniform background. I shot my first sports stuff in ages yesterday. […]

Yellow Walking Man

Yellow Walking Man An arrow points the way for walkers near Wine Strand on the Dingle Peninsula. Across the water is Ballydavid or Baile na nGall. Beautiful clear skies, lovely calm water. Ideal weather.

The waves at Couminole

The waves at Couminole Waves about to crash down on the nearby rocks at Couminole Beach on Slea Head, Co. Kerry. Originally this was in colour but it lacked punch. Converting it to black and white and slightly overexposing the blue channel created this dramatic scene.

Windswept grass and fence

Windswept grass and fence The tough grass by a beach in Kerry grows thick on this hill, bounded by a wire fence to keep curious people like myself at bay! This is an experiment for me. I thought the b/w treatment would work well as the image is full of texture, lines and shadow. What […]
