Glider EI-128 sitting on the sand at Inch Strand, Co. Kerry in 2006. I’ve posted a few photos of this glider in the past and I can safely say this is the last one unless I happen to see it again!

Bertie’s going overboard today, hopefully. As I write this Bertie Ahern is speaking and it sounds like a resignation speech. I haven’t heard an apology for lying under oath and deceiving the public yet however.
Unfortunately we’re all going to forget this by the next election. Hopefully the other parties will make hay while the sun shines.
Posting this today as Miriam’s photo of the same sign reminded me I had shot this at Allihies Beach in Co. Cork.
It’s appropriate too.
Edit – he’s out. Bertie Ahern will resign on May 6th 2008.
The hang gliding crowd attracted a bit of a crowd on Inch Beach in 2006. Well, it was late September and there wasn’t that many people on the beach in the first place, so 2 people isn’t so bad, eh?
Hunger got the best of us and we watched as a powered plane flew high up in the air. I don’t think any of the gliders made it up that day because the winds weren’t right.
I photographed the beach at Couminole on the Dingle Peninsula back in 2006 when there was a beach there. There was no sand to be seen during repeated visits there in September 2007.
I had actually quite forgotten I had taken this so it was nice to see the lovely sandy beach!
Trivia – a well known member of Mallow Camera Club who shall remain nameless was caught by the tide and had to remain sitting on the rocks for several hours in wet, foggy and rough conditions until the tide went out again.
Our Shih Tzu, Oscar, received a long overdue grooming today. Here he is on the 10th of December 2007. Can you imagine how much more hair grew since then?
Yes, this photo is very similar to this beach photo. They were taken moments apart. I’m running low on prepared images, it’s after 9pm and I have lots of other things to do tonight before I go to bed. *yawn*
Sunset over Garrettstown Beach.

I have now shut down Postfix, and redirecting email to through my domain registrar, Joker.com who hopefully can handle the load better.

Our Shih Tzu Oscar on Garrettstown Beach again. We forgot to bring a ball with us but Oscar went running after anything I threw.
He never did catch the object. I guess there’s nothing quite like a tennis ball eh?
I love the evening sun on him in this picture!
A holiday caravan near a beach on the Dingle Peninsula.
This caravan has been in the same spot for at least the last 2 years, and probably longer. I wanted to shoot it for quite a while but it wasn’t until I converted this shot to b/w that I was happy with it.
The final day of the year 2007. It’s cloudy and misty and rain is in the air. Very mild for this time of year actually.
2007 was a mixed bag for many people. It was a year of extremes – joy and sadness in equal measures, but life changing for myself and my wife as our son Adam was born into the world this year.
This sunset was shot at Garrettstown Beach a few weeks ago. Dedicated to the memory of Gerry who visited that beach with us before she passed away.
