Crosshaven Boats

In mid February we went down to Crosshaven and I took Adam and Oscar for a walk down the road past the boat yards. It was way too cold and windy though so I didn’t go too far. On the way back I looked up and this just jumped out at me! Love how this […]

The old boat at Mizen Head

Next time you’re out at Mizen Head you might notice this abandoned boat lying upside down by the visitor center. I almost missed it but I looked back to get a shot of the cliffs in the background. This makes a nice foreground I think. Anyway, must have been an awful chore dragging that boat […]

The birds of Schull

Two seagulls wander into the water on the slip that serves the Bere Ferry in Schull Harbour. Jacinta was the first to notice that actually, the Bere Ferry does not go from Schull. It lands at Castletownbere! Oops! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 22mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Boats and fishing tackle

Boats and lobster pots (I presume?) lie on the quay in Bantry. This area is a must see for photographers. There are so many things to see you could spend hours there just snapping away! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s

Sheila

This boat, Sheila, has been tied up in Cobh for I don’t know how long. This photo was taken in 2006 but the last time I was in Cobh around this area I remember seeing it. I wonder what’s the story with it? Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 200 Shutter […]

Cobh boats and cathedral

Boats tied to the quay in Cobh, Co. Cork. Cobh Cathedral is visible in the background. I could have removed that wire but it was a pain to get the details of the Cathedral in. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 200 Shutter speed 1/100s

The rebel flag in Ballycotton

The Cork County colours fly on the quay at Ballycotton Harbour in Co. Cork in 2006. I’ve been looking at this image for so long I’m almost certain I must have uploaded it but it’s been sitting in my output folder for all this time! Aperture ƒ/14 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO […]

A Rainbow over Cobh

A rainbow brightens up the dark clouds threatening Cobh in Co. Cork in late 2006. You can see Cobh Cathedral in the background, and I’d swear the boats in the foreground are still there in the same position all these years later .. Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 200 Shutter […]

Old rope and boats

Old rope and boats Old rope on the quayside in Bantry Harbour, Co. Cork. I love the different textures in this image, and I knew I’d be happy with it in b/w!

Looks like rain in Ballycotton

Looks like rain in Ballycotton Threatening clouds over Ballycotton Harbour in Co. Cork. This was taken way back in 2006 on a nice September afternoon. Lots done to this image, including overlay layers, and layer masks and other fun.

Ballycotton Fishing Boats

Ballycotton Fishing Boats Fishing boats crowd the harbour in Ballycotton on a warm August afternoon. This was taken in 2006, when I think I shot the rest of my Ballycotton images. I love the imposing clouds and the leading lines of the bows.
