Deep Water Berth at Ringaskiddy

The deep water berth at Ringaskiddy in Cork Harbour yesterday. Driving rain, wind blowing it almost horizontal. The first day of the year was wet. I waited until it quietened down a bit before venturing outside with my camera! 🙂 Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 6D Focal length 24mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1.3s

An Apple for Blarney

I discovered there’s an apple tree on the Waterloo Road near Blarney recently when I spotted apples on the road while out walking. Originally I thought I’d post this as a bright colourful photo but then I wanted to show off the texture of the fruit against the rough, stony surface of the road.

Still Pushing Buggies

A new book featuring pictures of Cork was published recently, Cork in the 1960s. The front cover is a photo of two women pushing a buggy and a pram on St. Patrick’s Street. I was on that street today and when I saw the book in the window of Waterstones I had to make this photo when I saw the opportunity. It was nice to get out with Blarney Photography Club today on a photo walk! Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 6D Focal length 24mm ISO 1600 Shutter speed 1/250s
