One of the family of swans on Blarney Lake in the grounds of Blarney Castle, last month.
It’s snowing again but it’s only a light dusting. It’s cold enough that the snow will sit on the ground all day but unless you grab snow from parked cars there won’t be any snow fights!
Here’s a photo from 2015, when we had a lot more snow!

The sun has set on 2020 and I finish the year with what is probably my favourite photo of the year.
The sun shines through trees heavy with Autumn coloured leaves, not yet touched by the harsh winter winds back in October this year. Photo made in the grounds of Blarney Castle where I expect to take many more walks since we are only allowed exercise within 5km of home. That remains in place until the end of January because of rising Covid19 numbers in the country. Third lockdown of the year unfortunately.
I have made roughly half the number of photos I normally shoot in a year. In April I took one photo with my camera. The number of photos I took with my phone wasn’t much different from previous years but I know for certain that I took many more photos of my cats and dog this year!
Blarney Lake lies at the far end of the gardens surrounding Blarney Castle but is well worth a visit if you’re in the gardens. I’m not sure how often swans are there but these two curious and friendly birds were there yesterday.
Winter’s here and it was -1C yesterday morning! With clear skies it was nice for a walk as long you were wrapped up well!
