One of the many trees growing in the arid desert surrounding the ranch Automattic stayed in while in Arizona.
Grass growing in the Arizona desert.
We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot.
Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!
Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!
Flowers outside The Lough Parish Church, “Church of the Immaculate Conception”.
You can read more about the church and mass times at the The Lough Parish page on the Diocese website.
Besides the beautiful swans, there’s the usual gathering of pigeons waddling along on the path picking up bread crumbs.
Too tempting. I had to chase after them and encourage them to fly a little. Some of them need the exercise!
This will probably be the final photo from that September 2006 visit to the Conor Pass. It’s taken earlier than some of the others but I’m a sucker for leading lines so it had to go in!
I love the reflection in the water on the valley floor, and the shadows of the clouds.
Must make a trip back there this summer!
I count my blessings that we had sunlight this day at the Conor Pass. If we had arrived 10 minutes later all I would have seen was a white wall of fog.
I’m loath to post photos from the same location day after day but I may as well call this “Conor Pass Week” and get the rest of them out of the dark where they’ve languished since 2006.
After the reaction to yesterday’s Conor Pass photo hopefully you’ll like this one too.
I have another 2 or 3 taken at the same time. The day was perfect for photography, the light was strong and to the side, there was an interesting sky and of course the scenery is beautiful. That was a very successful trip!
