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.

Blarney Castle and River Martin

Blarney Castle and River Martin

The River Martin flows near Blarney Castle in Co. Cork on a cold December morning in 2005. The Castle grounds were quiet that day with hardly a soul about! Spencer Tunick would have been hardly known in the area at the time.

Where did all the naked people in Blarney go?

Spencer Tunick shot one of his “installations” in Blarney this morning. I don’t know if everyone congregated in the gardens in front of the Castle, or if it was behind but this is the view from the top of Blarney Castle so Spencer may have taken a shot from here.

Well done to everyone who showed up! Very brave souls. :)

PS. The Evening Echo ran with a wide angle shot of everyone. No doubt the rest of the papers will have similar photos in the next day or so!
