A tree at sunset

Walking through the grounds of Blarney Castle late one November evening when the sun is setting. The shadows grow long and black fills the spaces between orange light.

The Colours of Autumn

The Colours of Autumn

The golden colours of Autumn are a firm favourite of every photographer. Here’s a reminder of what they look like as trees in the northern hemisphere are now showing green shoots and daffodils are flowering.

Blackbird in the bushes

Blackbird in the bushes

A very busy blackbird stopped still for 5 seconds so I could catch a photo of it. He was digging around, throwing up leaves and hunting around between branches. Building material for a nest perhaps?

Morning Light on Blarney Castle

Morning Light on Blarney Castle

This morning is a beautiful start to the week. Fog in the distance and the fiery orange ball of the sun shining through clear skies. Blarney Castle was lit up in a lovely orange glow and I had to spend a few minutes away from the busy bustle of life to get this photo.

Blarney Castle Sunset

Blarney Castle Sunset

A few days ago we had a lovely sunset and luckily I was out walking with my wife around the village. Here’s a shot from the road outside. This is a silhouette anyone in Blarney will recognise, isn’t it?

Blarney House in the Distance

Blarney House in the Distance

Walk down by Blarney Lake and you’ll see Blarney House off the distance. There are usually cattle or horses in the fields around here but on this July day in 2015 the fields were empty.

Autumn Colours in Blarney Castle Gardens

We’ve been lucky this year that the autumn and early winter has been so mild. It was 15C today! I think of this display as one last hurrah before the cold and rain and wind really sets in.
