Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!
Some of the swans at the Lough a few weeks ago during the photo walk. Got a few more shots from that session to post!
Girls feed the swans at the Lough on Sunday afternoon.
Will posted his first photo from the day on his blog. He did arrive late, but he made up for lost time!
You really only appreciate how large and imposing a swan is when they rear up out of the water and spread their magnificent wings. While at The Lough on Sunday there were a number of fights between swans. Guess it’s that time of the year again, eh?
The swans were fairly tame towards us humans, and allowed us to shoot quite closely, but I’ve had run ins with swans before and I’m always suspicious of them!
A heron swoops in on a bunch of greedy gulls at The Lough yesterday!
In retrospect, we were very lucky with the weather for the photowalk. Just after I got home the downpour started and 60mph winds ravaged the south of the country!
I was going to upload a bunch of the photowalk shots today but I’ll let them trickle in and then post the remainer on Friday.
Here are the daffodils my wife picked up when she gave a nice crisp €50 note to the Irish Cancer Society collector in Blarney this afternoon.
A few days ago I offered to give the proceeds from the sale of a photo to charity plus €50 of my own money/. Nobody splashed out on a print unfortunately.
Well done to Robert who braved the elements to collect today!
Out in the wilds of Co Cork, to the north of Bantry I found an old deserted farm. The house looked like it had been empty for some time and some of the out buildings were in worse repair.
Don’t forget the photowalk on Sunday!
