A Cold Sunrise

A Cold Sunrise

Last night was the coldest yet this winter. It’s been amazingly mild so far but this morning cars were encased in a thick frost, the lock on my car was frozen solid and the thermometer in my car said -2C. Lovely sunrise however. Brrrrr.

Sunset over Cork City

Sunset over Cork City

The sun sets over Cork City as seen from Mayfield yesterday evening. Love the colour of the sun shining on the underside of the cloud!

Gone fishin in the morning

Gone fishin’ in the morning

Sunrise on the wharf in Santa Cruz, California just over a month ago.

Sunlight through trees

Sunlight through trees

It was another foggy morning in Blarney but not as bad as the last one. This time I had my camera with me and walked up to Blarney Castle where I got some nice shots of the trees, fog and river. I loved the sight of the morning sunlight streaming through the trees and fog. […]

Sunrise over Blarney

Sunrise over Blarney

This morning my son and I joined other parents and children to walk to school. It was a beautiful morning and I captured the glow of the early morning sun before it broke over the horizon and over the roof of Blarney Woollen Mills.

Shandon Bells from Afar

Shandon Bells from Afar

The steeple of St. Anne’s Church towers over the surrounding streets as seen from Coburg Street, Cork last night. I laboured over this photo. I could not get the shade and colour of the houses in the middle-background right for quite a while. Sometimes it was too bright, or too blue, or too dark, or […]

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. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/500s

the fiery sky

The Fiery Sky

The Sun shone on the underside of the clouds this morning, lighting them up in a blaze of glory. Moments later the gloom had settled in, the Sun disappeared and an hour later the rain had started. Ah well. Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 180mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/100s

Foggy Sunlight

Foggy Sunlight

Fog covers the village of Blarney at the merest hint of a calm chilly morning and today was no exception. These are the trees across the road from my son’s school. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 40mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/250s

Beautiful Evening in San Diego

Just a beautiful evening in San Diego

I arrived in San Diego a few hours ago and the first thing I noticed when I got into my hotel room was the amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. This doesn’t do it justice as the foreground is a little too dark but I wanted to get it uploaded with minimum fuss so here […]

Deckchairs on the beach

Deckchairs on the beach

Deckchairs on the beach at Seaside in Florida. Taken early in the morning before the day time humidity and temperature hit! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 48mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Saint Finbarres Sunset

Saint Finbarre’s Sunset

St Finbarre’s Cathedral silhouetted against the sunset in Cork yesterday. It was freezing cold but the skies were mostly clear and snow hasn’t fallen in the City or here in Blarney either yet. The country is going through a recession but you wouldn’t know it. After driving around Parnell Place twice I parked in Merchant’s […]

More naked

More Naked

Look up and see naked branches cover the sky with their evil and treacherous appendages, and then walk straight into some dog sh*t that an uncaring owner neglected to clean up. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/250s

Reflections of a fence

Reflections of a fence

That same fence again, this time against the setting sun and reflected in a pool of water from the recent rains. Loved taking this shot and others at the time, they turned out almost as good as I imagined they would! My sister-in-law’s husband Ed has published a short story and is using one of […]
