Bench and Wheel

A decorative bench and wheel on the ranch in Arizona. I took so many shots of the place I’m still struggling to catch up and mark the ones I want to work on but I will eventually get to them. I suspect some may not see the light of day until next year though! Aperture […]

Glengarriff River

This is a picturesque stream that runs through Glengarriff Nature Reserve in Co. Cork. We went for a short walk close by but by the time we got here it was getting late in the afternoon and Adam was getting hungry! Aperture ƒ/4.5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/50s

Hungry Cat

A hungry, scrawny cat came up to us while walking around Schull in Co. Cork last weekend. The poor thing was crying for food and affection. This was the first time Adam saw a real cat and he was delighted but we had to leave the poor thing to fend for itself. I discovered that […]

John Sullivan

This is John Sullivan, a man we met near the beach at Allihies in West Cork a few days ago. He’s quite a remarkable man, especially as he will be 91 in June. I’ll be very happy with myself if I’m as fit and healthy as he is when I celebrate my 91st birthday! The […]

The stag in the English Market

I remember seeing a shot Alkos took of this stag or deer on a wall near the English Market in Cork. I must dig up a link to it. Anyway, that shot was on my mind when I took this photo and I really like how it turned out! Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 20D […]

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

No moo room

Cows gather in the shed against the howling wind and cold at Allihies. No room for any more though! Aperture ƒ/4.5 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 22mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/30s

A place to live in the trees

I noticed this small hut while out walking one afternoon on the ranch in Arizon last January. Bit of a squeeze I bet! Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 300mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/125s

Junk in the desert

I’m not sure what this metal object used to be, but it was sitting in the desert on the ranch in Arizona. I loved the contrasting textures and light and shadows so I had to shoot it! Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

An Fear Marbh san uisce

An Fear Marbh, or “The Dead Man” in English lies off the coast of Co. Kerry. I posted another photo of the island taken on the same night as this one here, but it was such a beautiful evening I took quite a few shots! Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 33mm ISO […]

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

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

Great ball of flame

Sunrise over Blarney a few days ago. There was a thin layer of cloud on the horizon that nicely blocked out much of the light of the sun allowing me to capture this early morning sun. It’s amazing to think that the light we see takes 8 minutes to travel the immense distance between the […]
