Barren and Snow

Barren and Snow

This private road up to Blarney Castle was covered in snow, the trees were bare and every inch of grass wore the familiar white coat of a recent snow fall. Taken yesterday morning while the snow fell. It’s -3C here in Blarney this morning and feels even colder! Brrrrr Aperture ƒ/5 Camera Canon EOS 40D […]

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

Snowing in Blarney

Snowing in Blarney

It snowed in Blarney today. First snow of the season fell 2 days ago but was barely a few flakes that fell overnight. Today’s snow covered the area in a blank of white, but thankfully didn’t last too long! Roads are still affected and unfortunately there’s a steep hill coming into my estate. Aperture ƒ/6.3 […]

Frosty morning in Blarney

Frosty morning in Blarney

Another frosty morning in Blarney, County Cork. I’m glad I work from home. The roads are deadly now. Snow fell in Dublin yesterday and the city practically came to a stand still. It hasn’t snowed in Blarney yet but the roads have been bad. We had a Christmas Day adventure when the car didn’t make […]

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

Bare Trees Budding Trees

Bare Trees, Budding Trees

Bare naked trees are all you’ll see along the Marina in Blackrock at this time of year but in April the leaves are budding and life is returning. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 14mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Old Wood and Yellow

Pairc Ui Chaoimh

Páirc Uí Chaoimh

Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Blackrock, Cork. It’s named after Pádraig Ó Caoimh (no relation), “a native of Roscommon, this War of Independence veteran became secretary of the Cork County Board at 21, and he began a 35-year stint as General-Secretary of the GAA barely a decade later”(ref) Michael Jackson and U2 have both played here […]

Empty Morning

Empty Morning

The view from my office on a damp misty and foggy morning 10 days ago. I live on the side of a depression between two slight hills and fog builds up inside there occasionally. Photowalk on Saturday! See the link above and please comment if you’re coming! We need numbers for the complementary lunch at […]

Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Inside Biosphere 2, Arizona is a complete ecosystem meant to keep a group of people alive for months on end. That project ended years ago but the building remains and it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area! Just in case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, 3 hotel rooms going for free on the […]

Rain on the River

Rain on the River

Rain falls on a river in a town in County Clare while we were stuck in a traffic jam. I used to know what town this was taken in but now it’s a mystery. It did have a very distinctive walled off area right in the middle of the river though. Anyone recognise it? Aperture […]

Autumn Trees

Autumn Trees

Beautiful golden leaves adorn the trees in Burnham Beeches near London. Last year I posted a photo of the same trees in Burnham Beeches and this version has been sitting in my TODO folder ever since, waiting for me to work on it.
