Sun sets over Kerry Mountains

This was taken seven years ago and I have no idea where exactly it was taken. I suspect it was somewhere near Killarney but I know it was in Kerry somewhere.

Clouds over Blarney

I walked out my front door in late August, 2011 and saw this amazing cloud in the sky above my head. I could not resist taking a few photos!

Mizen Head Signal Station

The Mizen Head Signal Station lies at the tip of Ireland and is well worth a visit. I haven’t been there since this photo was taken many years ago.

The evening after the storm

Evening after the storm

Ireland has been lashed with some severe winds and storms over the last 2 weeks. There’s destruction in many locations around the coast and inland too but sometimes the storm abates and the sun shines between the clouds.

Sunset over Cork City

Sunset over Cork City

The sun sets over Cork City as seen from Mayfield yesterday evening. Love the colour of the sun shining on the underside of the cloud!

St Patrick’s Bridge

St Patrick's Bridge

St Patrick’s Bridge in Cork spans the River Lee at the top of St Patrick’s Street and leads on to Bridge Street on the northern bank of the river. Here it is on a particularly cloudy day a few days ago!

More information on the bridge can be found here.

The Ratty River

View of the Ratty River as seen from the top of Bunratty Castle, Co Clare.

Despite the cloudy sky temperatures were in the low twenties so it was quite warm, especially after climbing up the many steps to the top of the castle!

Oddly enough I couldn’t find this view in a search for the river name on Google or Flickr. It’s probably there if you look for Bunratty Castle but I’ll leave that to other inquisitive minds.

Fountainstown Beach in April

Fountainstown Beach in April

Who wouldn’t go to the beach on a blustery, showery day? A cold wind blew off the land on to Fountainstown Beach and the sky would change as quickly as anything. Such happened here when the sun peeked through the clouds for a few moments and we were suddenly sweltering. It didn’t take long before we felt first few drops of rain however.

This is the original photo for comparison. I love what I can do quickly and easily with Lightroom!

Windswept in Reykjavik

Windswept

One of the many buildings in Reykjavik, Iceland that are battered by the harsh weather there. You wouldn’t know it by looking at the sky here but it was quite cold when I took the photo. I think it was at the end of a short photowalk around the city centre when our fingers were numb with cold.
