Rock Landscape

Limpits cling tightly to a rock in Church Bay.

The Swan Gang

Tough looking swans gather for bread at the Lough in Cork for bread.

The problem with shooting dangerous wildlife with a wideangle lens is that unless you stick the camera in their faces nobody will believe you were risking life and limb by leaning down right next to them when shooting. Well, I was that close. *gulp*

See how the swan in the background is lunging for his neighbour with a wicked looking snap? He wasn’t the only one doing that!

Clinging Flowers

Flowers cling to the rocks in Church Bay, Co. Cork.

Post processing: curves, channel mixer, blurred layer and layer mask, lomo and unsharp mask.

Purple Flowers

Purple flowers that crept into my garden from next door. I’m not complaining because they’re very pretty!

Old Rope

Old rope tied to a rusty old screw embedded in weather beaten mortar at Church Bay near Crosshaven.

I used to dive off this rock about 10 years ago, mind you the tide was in whenever I did!

West Cork Landscape

The beautiful countryside north-east of Dunmanway in West Cork.

Bovine bodyguard

Three cattle watch as we passed their field. “Is that a bull on the left?” says the city boy.

Mr. Ed

Well, maybe he doesn’t talk, but this horse sure eats a lot!

Cobh Boats

I would hazard a guess that these boats are a semi-permanent feature of the Cobh seafront as they’re berthed there each time I have visited!
I love the cobbles of the slipway, and the way the water catches theevening light.

Looks like I’m not the only photoblogger to visit Lanzarote recently!
