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.

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

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 slightly warmer than it is now.

This’ll be my last post of 2012 so happy new year! I took over 10,000 photos this year which is a recent record. If only I could find time and motivation to work on more of those photos so they’ll see the light of day..
