Silver Lining over Couminole

Silver Lining over Couminole

No matter how bad the day, how crummy and wet the weather is, there’s always a silver lining. This day on the Slea Head the silver lining was the fact that our toddler slept the whole drive around, and of course this photo. This is the beach at Couminole on Slea Head in County Kerry. […]

Reflections of a fence

Reflections of a fence

That same fence again, this time against the setting sun and reflected in a pool of water from the recent rains. Loved taking this shot and others at the time, they turned out almost as good as I imagined they would! My sister-in-law’s husband Ed has published a short story and is using one of […]

There’s a statue of Christ and associated figures on the cross at the top of Slea Head in County Kerry. I’m not sure who erected them but they’re a prominent part of the headland there. More photos: 1, 2, 3. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Flying back to Cork

On the way home from Quebec I flew to Heathrow first, before hopping back home via Aer Lingus to Cork. I’m pretty sure this was over the UK somewhere, but really, it could just as easily have been the south coast of Ireland too.

Kite Surfer

Kite Surfer

A lone kite surfer flies through the water at Garrettstown Beach in County Cork a few weeks ago. Last weekend with the good weather the beach was packed, but we were there when it was cold, rain drizzled, and a cold wind whipped up the fine sand everywhere. Place was deserted. I like this photo.

Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

Chemtrails and Clouds and Evening Sky

I’ve already covered the chemtrails conspiracy but they’re such a frequent and visible part of the sky that I have to shoot them sometimes. This was taken in Blarney, the trail is from a high flying plane going west to the USA. Arrangements for the photowalk on the 26th are surging ahead. Pat got in […]

Glass Clouds

Glass Clouds

It’s odd sometimes when you’re traveling through the towns of Ireland and you come across the remnants of the Celtic Tiger, usually newly built and empty office buildings. This is one such building, near the waterfront in the town of Kilrush in County Clare. It faces on to a broad street but all the other […]

Little Fluffy Clouds

Little Fluffy Clouds

Clouds drift over the River Lee across from Blackrock Village about a week ago. I’m trying out the preview of Bibble 5 Pro at the moment. Great DAM features, although it is starting to slow down after importing about 90,000 images and it’s reading from an external USB 2.0 drive. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS […]
