F211 – Fregatte Köln

Magic Water

Water laps the shore at Fountainstown Beach on a crisp September evening.

CELTIC FIShER

The Celtic Fisher, out of Tralee, was docked in Dingle Harbour in early November.

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 […]

Abandoned Dingle Trawler

Right on the pier in Dingle are two trawlers that are slowly falling to pieces. The one pictured above is severely burned, windows burned out and broken. Moss grows on the deck amid the rubbish. I can’t believe it’s still there. It was there last year when we visited, and may even have been there […]

Bubbling Water

Bubbling Water

Water flows down to the beach at Fountainstown, bubbling as it goes over rocks and seaweed. PS. I’ve reduced the cost of all prints by about $50 to $80 for the largest size framed prints. Most of the cost goes towards manufacturing and my markup is only 20% on all prints. Check ‘em out in […]

Birds eye view of Montmorency Falls

Bird’s eye view of Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls in Quebec, as seen from the top of the nearby hill. Lots of steps to walk up! PS. In unrelated news, I received the following email from Siobhán Duggan: Hi Donncha, while doing some research on the lough recently I came across your blog regarding a Lough Photography day you organised last year. […]

Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls

You’ll find Montmorency Falls just outside Quebec City in Canada. They’re an imposing sight, visible from the highway and by foot you can almost reach the base of the falls. Bring a coat and protect your camera because you’ll be soaked by spray! Remember that Balloon Boy story last week? People have been searching for […]

Chemin des chutes

Chemin des chutes

A waterfall near where I’m staying in Quebec. To get to here you need to descend about 100m of steep steps but there are frequent observation platforms to observe the waterfall. On the way back up, those platforms were a welcome break from the hard slog of climbing. My legs were like jelly by the […]

Wet, shiny stones

Wet, shiny stones

The outgoing tide on Fountainstown Beach leaves behind wet stones and seaweed as it retreats. This is a long exposure shot of one second with my camera resting on one of those rocks! By the time you read this I’ll be on a plane, in the air most likely, or waiting for a connection in […]
