A small boat in Baltimore, County Cork. The Galleries on Mallow Camera Club are back in operation! The site used to use a modified fGallery to allow members to upload photos but there’s an exploit for the last version of that plugin, it doesn’t work in WP 2.9.x and the author has abandoned the project […]

F211 – Fregatte Köln

The Fregatte Köln docked in Cork Harbour in 2005. Glorious day for a photowalk!

Abandoned Dingle Trawler

Right on the pier in Dingle are two trawlers that are slowly falling to pieces. The one pictured above is severely burned, windows burned out and broken. Moss grows on the deck amid the rubbish. I can’t believe it’s still there. It was there last year when we visited, and may even have been there […]

Baltimore Harbour

Baltimore Harbour

A small boat sits in Baltimore Harbour in Co Cork. Taken last September from the pier where the ferry for Cape Clear lands. If you’re in Cork tomorrow, there’s a pre-Blog Awards photowalk at noon. Everyone’s meeting at The Old Oak on Oliver Plunkett Street. See you there and at the Blog Awards tomorrow night! […]

Reflections on Kinsale

If you walk along the quay in Kinsale, Co Cork and glance across the harbour you’ll see the houses above. I’ve always wondered who lives over there and what do they think of the busy tourist town across the water. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 59mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/80s

A boat in Cape Clear

A solitary boat in the North Harbour, Cape Clear Island. PS. Check out Jolt++, a new photoblog created by fellow Automatticer Michael Pick. Great photos, and I really like the Tumble theme. I wonder how I’d squeeze my adverts into such a theme? PPS. My brother Donal was featured on the envelope of the first […]

Cottages in decay

Cottages in decay

Two tiny cottages sit on the quayside in Cape Clear’s North Harbour. You might have missed them when you arrived because they’re off in the opposite direction most people take. I was quite taken with the contrast between both cottages. While both are obviously old and have seen better days, the left one has a […]

castletownbere harbour

Castletownbere Harbour

This is the harbour at Castletownbere with an impressive cloud hanging over the water. It may possibly be the same cloud over Allihies Beach but that’s probably just wishful thinking on my part. Both photos were taken close in time to each other so maybe .. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm […]

Kinsale at night

Kinsale at Night

The quiet, residential part of Kinsale as photographed from the busy touristy part across the harbour! This was a long exposure shot that came out quite nicely but it did show up the dead pixels on my sensor again. Good thing I don’t have time to shoot many of these types of photos nowadays. The […]

skyhawk

Skyhawk

Skyhawk, a boat moored in Kinsale harbour. Moored there for quite some time by the looks of things. It’s aptly named. It seems the local bird population have taken a liking to it and made it a stopping off point. I didn’t go to the Marathon today. Adam was up until 10.30pm last night bawling […]

birds-of-schull

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

The biggest drip in cobh

The biggest drip in Cobh

A water tap on the quay in Cobh, Co. Cork drips slowly into the sea. This is a favourite photo of mine. Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 200 Shutter speed 1/80s

rebel flag

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 […]
