Yellow and Fenced In

Yellow and Fenced In

A flower or weed? A weed is only a flower in the wrong place, or so I’ve heard. This was taken at Seaside in Florida during the Automattic meetup there in 2010. Beautiful beach there, horrible humidity in September! This will probably be my last post of the year here so happy new year and […]

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 […]

Fencing out the Atlantic

A fence on the road on Slea Head in County Kerry. The waters of the Atlantic lie just beyond.

Old wood and yellow

Conor Pass Hills and Clouds

Conor Pass Hills and Clouds This image broke my heart. I spent a long time trying to get the darkened sky layer and the brightened ground layer to merge nicely but I’m still not happy with it. This small web version looks almost ok but I can still see the offending bits that are wrong.

Sunshine on the Conor Pass

Sunshine on the Conor Pass This will probably be the final photo from that September 2006 visit to the Conor Pass. It’s taken earlier than some of the others but I’m a sucker for leading lines so it had to go in! I love the reflection in the water on the valley floor, and the […]

I can hardly see myself

I can hardly see myself As I said previously, thick fog was rolling across the Conor Pass. It was frightening how fast it moved and the light and scene changed utterly. Here’s it’s obscuring the road down the Pass, making the too-narrow road even more treacherous. I think by the time we left, even this […]

Clouds over the Conor Pass

Clouds over the Conor Pass I’m loath to post photos from the same location day after day but I may as well call this “Conor Pass Week” and get the rest of them out of the dark where they’ve languished since 2006. After the reaction to yesterday’s Conor Pass photo hopefully you’ll like this one […]

Rusty old fence at the Conor Pass

Rusty old fence at the Conor Pass A rusty old fence is all that protects you from a nasty fall down a fairly steep hill down to the valley floor at the Conor Pass. Buy This Photo

Laneway fence

Laneway fence An old fence follows the road off into the distance at Wine Strand in the Dingle Peninsular, Co. Kerry. Lines, lines everywhere, I love lines!

Windswept grass and fence

Windswept grass and fence The tough grass by a beach in Kerry grows thick on this hill, bounded by a wire fence to keep curious people like myself at bay! This is an experiment for me. I thought the b/w treatment would work well as the image is full of texture, lines and shadow. What […]

An Fear Marbh

An Fear Marbh An Fear Marbh, an island off the coast of Co. Kerry, Ireland, with the setting sun lighting up the cloud over the Atlantic. “An Fear Marbh” translates as “the dead man” and is so named because of the obvious shape of the island – that of a man lying on his back. […]

The lone daisy

The lone daisy A solitary daisy grows in front of a small house in Fountainstown. This was an interesting photo for me to take. I spotted the daisy while walking out the road but I didn’t stop to shoot it until returning. I’m glad I remembered it! I’m really happy with the way this came […]
