Seaweed rope

I like the dreamy diffused glow of this image. It was shot down in Inchadony Beach a few weeks back.

Howto: First of all, I had to straighten the horizon because it was at a precarious angle. I used two layers, I saturated the colours slightly in the bottom layer to bring out the green of the sea weed.
I blurred the top layer and converted it to black and white using the channel mixer. I applied a layer mask of a gradient to make the bottom half of the lower layer visible and changed layer mode to screen with an opacity of 100.
I then corrected lens distortion using ptlens running in Wine. The horizon was noticeably bent but this program did a great job correcting that!

We Love WordPress

Imagine my surprise when we stumbled upon the above scrawled on the sand at Inchadoney. I had nothing to do with it, honest! 😉

Jacinta and I drove down to Clonakilty yesterday evening where we enjoyed a lovely meal in the Cobra Indian Restaurant. Then it was on to Inchadoney beach to enjoy a walk before the sun set.
I just had to write “WE LOVE WORDPRESS” in the sand after seeing a message about bebo nearby. Thanks Jacinta for the idea!

Ruby on the beach

Ruby, a Springer Spaniel we met last year in Bunnyconnellan, is still down in Myrtleville! Her owner must be living down there somewhere. We threw a stick for her a few times and then walked over to Fennell’s Bay and she followed us with her tail wagging!
It was a pleasure walking with her only spoilt by the idiot teenage girl who threw stones at us from high ground. She and her group of friends didn’t hang around when they saw us returning back towards them. Very brave.

Green Seaweed

Green seaweed grows on stumps of wood on the beach at Youghal. I can only guess that these stumps are a protection against the powerful force of the tides. Aren’t they?
Check out the Youghal category for another shot of this beach!

On the beach at Youghal

Last weekend we visited Youghal in Co. Cork. I haven’t been on the beach there for years and I had quite forgotten how big it is! It was nice for a walk, but we were frozen from the cold wind.
I was just in town. Big Brother were supposed to hold auditions from 9am on the Grand Parade but there was no sign of them. Still, I used the opportunity to buy flowers and they went down very well with Jacinta! 🙂

Beached Whale

A beached whale on Garretstown Beach last November.
A notice which is being read by the man in the foreground reads that this is a female long finned pilot whale and asks that people do not remove or bury it as it is required by researchers.
I was reluctant to post this picture in the past 2 months but after what happened in London when a whale died it spurred me to find this photo again.

This was taken on the same night as this photo and this one.
