Blarney House

Blarney House

Blarney House, an impressive building on the grounds of Blarney Castle in Co. Cork, Ireland. It’s a private residence but during the summer there are guided tours every half hour.

Everyone in for a swim!

We spent this evening at Garrettstown Beach. Wow, what a day. First time swimming in the sea in several years. IT WAS COLD! I’d forgotten just how cold the Atlantic can be.

The Ratty River

The Ratty River

View of the Ratty River as seen from the top of Bunratty Castle, Co Clare.

Despite the cloudy sky temperatures were in the low twenties so it was quite warm, especially after climbing up the many steps to the top of the castle!

Oddly enough I couldn’t find this view in a search for the river name on Google or Flickr. It’s probably there if you look for Bunratty Castle but I’ll leave that to other inquisitive minds.

Focus on Flowers

Focus on Flowers

Flowers in the gardens of Blarney Castle.

Never once in my wildest nightmares did I ever imagine that I’d post a camera phone image as a single post but here it is. Taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4. There’s obvious JPEG artefacts when you view the original at 100% but this 800×600 pixel image is good enough for web viewing and Lightroom does wonders even with JPEG files.

I’ve posted many more photos from the S4 on my Google Plus account but they’re straight from the camera and “enhanced” by G+ and still look pretty good!

Boats in Cobh

Boats in Cobh

Some of the boats that have taken up semi-permanent residence in Cobh pictured in 2006. I think some of those boats are still there!

That was a beautiful but cold January evening.
