Bay Bridge at Night

The Bay Bridge in San Francisco as it was in 2007. I can’t believe that was seven years ago. Wow.

Evening after the storm

The 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.

A Cold Sunrise

A Cold Sunrise

Last night was the coldest yet this winter. It’s been amazingly mild so far but this morning cars were encased in a thick frost, the lock on my car was frozen solid and the thermometer in my car said -2C. Lovely sunrise however. Brrrrr.

Sunlight on the River

Sunlight on the River

Have you ever read Terry Pratchett’s description of the dawn light as it flows over Discworld? Not so much flows, but rather sluggishly crawls over the landscape. Loved that and that’s what comes to mind sometimes when I see photos like this. Pictured in the grounds of Blarney Castle last week.

Shaky Bridge on the Lee

Shaky Bridge on the Lee

The Shaky Bridge, Or Daly’s Bridge, spans the River Lee near Fitzgerald Park in Cork City.

Barren and Snow

Barren and Snow

This private road up to Blarney Castle was covered in snow, the trees were bare and every inch of grass wore the familiar white coat of a recent snow fall. Taken yesterday morning while the snow fell. It’s -3C here in Blarney this morning and feels even colder! Brrrrr Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

Water Tyre near Inchigeelagh

Water Tyre near Inchigeelagh

Inchigeelagh, Cork, Ireland. June 2012. After a trip to Gougane Barra where I photographed the usual suspects we stopped in Inchigeelagh and took a walk by the river. Near the end of the walk this tyre hangs from a tree into the river where I presume kids jumped into the water when the weather is […]

Waterloo Geocache

Waterloo Geocache

There’s a geocache close to where I live near the village of Waterloo. It’s hidden away next to a bridge but I have not been able to find it despite my best efforts. Still, got a photo out of the walk there yesterday.

boats in drake's pool

Boats in Drake’s Pool

There are always boats moored in the section of the Owenabue River called “Drake’s Pool”. This was a shot I took last weekend while out walking with my family there. Quite frosty but many people out walking the light from the setting sun was amazing. Yes, this location is associated with Sir Francis Drake: The […]

Saint Finbarres Sunset

Saint Finbarre’s Sunset

St Finbarre’s Cathedral silhouetted against the sunset in Cork yesterday. It was freezing cold but the skies were mostly clear and snow hasn’t fallen in the City or here in Blarney either yet. The country is going through a recession but you wouldn’t know it. After driving around Parnell Place twice I parked in Merchant’s […]
