The Fish Box

The Fish Box An abandoned fish box on Inch Strand, Co. Kerry. Clouds and a storm loom over the mountains across the bay but it was a bright blue sky that greeted us with only fluffy white clouds. I expect this box either fell overboard off a trawler or may have been used by a […]

O’Connell and Quane

O’Connell and Quane Daniel O’Connell and Michael Quane on the beach at Fountainstown. They’d been out on the kayaks for several hours but were kind enough to chat to us and allow me to take their photo. Michael Quane is a celebrated artist who has exhibited internationally and has many public works to his name […]

Courtmacsherry Dead End

Courtmacsherry Dead End The little town of Courtmacsherry in Co. Cork is a picturesque tourist village with pretty looking multi-coloured houses visible on the way into the town from Timoleague. This makes the attitude of the people we met there all the more confusing. We parked in the middle of the town, Jacinta wanted to […]

Cobh Peoples Regatta Fireworks

I went down to Cobh to see the end of the Cobh Peoples Regatta on Sunday night. I met Donal and Celine down there and a great night was had by all! The Regatta is a weekend long festival which I found out about last year, watched the fireworks and the band that played. This […]

Old Rope

Seaweed rope

Seaweed rope I like the dreamy diffused glow of this image. It was shot down in Inchadony Beach a few weeks back. Howto: First of all, I had to straighten the horizon because it was at a precarious angle. I used two layers, I saturated the colours slightly in the bottom layer to bring out […]

We Love WordPress

We Love WordPress Imagine my surprise when we stumbled upon the above scrawled on the sand at Inchadoney. I had nothing to do with it, honest! Jacinta and I drove down to Clonakilty yesterday evening where we enjoyed a lovely meal in the Cobra Indian Restaurant. Then it was on to Inchadoney beach to enjoy […]

Ruby on the beach

Ruby on the beach Ruby, a Springer Spaniel we met last year in Bunnyconnellan, is still down in Myrtleville! Her owner must be living down there somewhere. We threw a stick for her a few times and then walked over to Fennell’s Bay and she followed us with her tail wagging! It was a pleasure […]
