Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

Big Wheel in the Showgrounds

The big wheel, as seen from The Atlantic Pond outside Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork. Sort of fitting that I post a photo of a fairground ride on the day that Michael Jackson is laid to rest. BTW – there are still places on the Cork photowalk on the 18th. It’s less than 2 weeks […]

Little Fluffy Clouds

Little Fluffy Clouds

Clouds drift over the River Lee across from Blackrock Village about a week ago. I’m trying out the preview of Bibble 5 Pro at the moment. Great DAM features, although it is starting to slow down after importing about 90,000 images and it’s reading from an external USB 2.0 drive. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS […]

hillside chains

Hillside Chains

Rusted chains lie on the ground near the walkway to the Mizen Head Lighthouse. Just saw Star Trek. In my head it was the best thing since sliced bread but it was still a great film. Loved the little nods to the original series. Definitely worth going to see! Aperture ƒ/7.1 Camera Canon EOS 20D […]

thatched roof

Thatched Roof in Bunratty

A thatched roof on one of the cottages in Bunratty Folk Park, County Clare. There’s one ugly open mine right next door but it’s well hidden. I had no idea it was there until I checked Google Maps a minute ago! Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/250s

Steps to the Sea

Steps lead down to an observation point and small light at the tip of Mizen Head, County Cork.

kilkee beach

Kilkee Beach

Kilkee Beach in County Clare is a beautiful stretch of sand going on forever and ever. Well, seems like it, it’s a massively long beach and on the day we accidentally discovered it the sun was beating down on us. Hooray! I have no idea what RMA stands for. That little rock was sitting next […]

Toilets for the Aliens

Toilets for the Aliens

If aliens from outer space attack Youghal in Co Cork we know at least one building they won’t destroy. Odd looking characters featured on this sign for the public toilets near the beach. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/250s
