Adam is 1 tomorrow so we went out for lunch this afternoon. I really shouldn’t have had that chocolate cheescake. Yum though. Blarney was full of tourists wandering everywhere. The infamous “invulnerability zone” all tourists feel around them makes driving very hazardous, especially in the grounds of Blarney Woollen Mills. We had a party for […]
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 […]
This is an experiment. I am hoping to post (almost) every photo I take as small 400px wide images using the new gallery function in WordPress 2.5. These posts won’t appear in the feed because of the number of thumbnails Feedreaders won’t see the gallery, and only an excerpt will be shown on the homepage […]
Glider EI-128 sitting on the sand at Inch Strand, Co. Kerry in 2006. I’ve posted a few photos of this glider in the past and I can safely say this is the last one unless I happen to see it again! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/400s
On November 15th 2007 I took my Sigma 10-20 wide angle lens into O’Learys Camera World in Cork to be repaired. (I found out they were using some of my photos without permission too, but that’s another story. Read the linked post above!) Several phone calls followed over the weeks after that. Eventually I was […]
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 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 ..

Bertie Ahern, who recently announced his resignation as Taoiseach or Prime Minister of Ireland was well known for opening all sorts of events and buildings. Plaques with his name dot the country. PS. This image is now hosted on my own server where I have some referrer checks. If you don’t see it in your […]
Sheep in a Kerry field Wooah, digging into the archives here. This was shot in September 2006 while on holiday in Dingle. It’s a field on Slea Head at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula. It’s hard to see in the web version but I love the brooding clouds in the large image!
Reflections of the city Cork City Hall and the urban lighting on both sides of the River Lee are reflected in the water at night. I took this back in October 2006 when the Elysian hadn’t reached it’s glorious present day height. I venture to say that a photo of this scene now would feature […]
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.
