King Goose

This is Emi, a resident of Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge on Sheep’s Head when we stayed there last year. He ruled the roost, where all the local ducks following him around. He even danced once, but I wasn’t lucky enough to see that, however there is video!

I can highly recommend a stay at this guest house, it’s run by lovely people who’ll really look after you, beds are comfortable, as is the sitting room and breakfasts are huge!

A seagull on the pier in Santa Cruz, California.

This was taken early one morning on a sunrise photowalk with Marcus. It was so early I almost slept in and had to hurry to catch up with him!

Cork Docklands Grain Silo

Cork Docklands Grain Silo

John Finn’s superb photo of this grain silo that he posted today on Facebook (unfortunately you’ll need to be friends with him to see it) prompted me to dig up this photo of the same building from my output queue.

It was shot in 2014 when we went exploring the docklands one afternoon and I photographed the demolition of the Miag Grain Silo. I love that I caught a flock of birds swooping around the building!
