Clinging Flowers

Flowers cling to the rocks in Church Bay, Co. Cork.

Post processing: curves, channel mixer, blurred layer and layer mask, lomo and unsharp mask.

    THat’s a really nice shot. Good sense of depth in there, which is often hard.

    grianghraf álainn, a beautiful photo which calls to mind the beautiful poem in the Irish language entitled ‘Na Blátha Craige’ by Liam Ó Flaitheartaigh (famous short story writer in English language) .
    The poet addresses the flowers at the base of the cliff, saying what a poor situation they have, a place covered in bird droppings, sea mist and unlit by sun. The flowers respond

    ‘is cuma linn , a stór
    táimid faoi dhraíocht
    ag ceol na farraige’

    We do not mind at all
    we are in the spell
    of the music of the sea.
