The Curious Cow

One of the cows in a field on the grounds of Blarney Castle, Co Cork, Ireland. I’m not entirely happy with the cow in the background on the right but, meh. I love the texture of the cow’s hair on it’s face.

Blarney Tree in Fog

Blarney Tree in Fog

This is a tree that once stood in a large field near Blarney Castle, Co Cork, Ireland. It stood alone and was sometimes visible from the road but unfortunately it was chopped down a few weeks ago.

This was shot in February 2014 on a foggy, cold morning.

I was nominated on Facebook by two people (thanks Paul, thanks Claire) to post a monochrome image for five days so that’s what you can expect here this week! I’ll also be taking part in the photography 101 challenge on my WordPress.com blog at donncha.wordpress.com so make sure you subscribe, or follow me on Twitter/G+/FB where the usual notices are posted!

PS. I was reminded that this tree was known as the Fairy Tree by local people in Blarney. Thanks Mairéad!
