Roche’s Point Lighthouse, at the mouth of Cork Harbour.
I shot this from Camden Fort Meagher last weekend. It was a glorious day and as you can see the fort has a commanding view of the harbour!
More about the lighthouse can of course be read on Wikipedia.
A street in San Francisco, 2006.
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 just not right. Only after I left it for a few hours and came back did I recreate what I saw last night.
St Patrick’s Bridge in Cork spans the River Lee at the top of St Patrick’s Street and leads on to Bridge Street on the northern bank of the river. Here it is on a particularly cloudy day a few days ago!
More information on the bridge can be found here.
On our way back to Baltimore after a nice visit to Cape Clear Island the ferry passed by the Baltimnore Beacon.
I heard that the Beacon had been built by the father of a man who perished on the cliffs where it’s built but it’s origin is rather more mundane. The British Government ordered it built in the mid 1900’s. However I did know it was known as “Lott’s Wife” or the “Pillar of Salt” locally.
Yesterday evening in Crosshaven, Co Cork. It was a beautiful end of the day. Not quite as hot as other days which I was thankful for but many people out and a good atmosphere in the town.
Edit: here’s the original photo!
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.

One of the many buildings in Reykjavik, Iceland that are battered by the harsh weather there. You wouldn’t know it by looking at the sky here but it was quite cold when I took the photo. I think it was at the end of a short photowalk around the city centre when our fingers were numb with cold.
