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!

The Eagle Owl is Watching

An eagle owl at Fota Wildlife Park watches us human visitors with careful, observant eyes.

Watching this bird and the others the trainers had was an awe inspiring experience. I’m glad I took my 75-300mm telephoto lens!

Geese at The Lough feeding on the ground near the water’s edge. Most have their heads down pecking at scraps but one stubbornly kept a look out ..

Wait For Me!

Wait for me

A pigeon in Cork, somewhere.

I’m in Quebec. It’s raining a bit but hopefully I’ll get out this morning for a look around. Luggage still hasn’t arrived, but someone rang at 2am to say it would be delivered here. Yay.
