Castletownbere Harbour

This is the harbour at Castletownbere with an impressive cloud hanging over the water. It may possibly be the same cloud over Allihies Beach but that’s probably just wishful thinking on my part. Both photos were taken close in time to each other so maybe ..

Discarded fishing tackle

Discarded fishing tackle

Fishing tackle, nets, and even a gas cylinder rest against a wall near Allihies Beach in West Cork.

I saw all this stuff just sitting there, looking all out of place in a field.

Allihies Beach Canon 10-22 Canon 20D Cork Ireland Landscape Nature Photos Sea Sky Water

Allihies Beach

Allihies Beach

I look outside now and see the hazy cloud and rain that has descended on Cork and wonder if I was really at Allihies beach and saw the fluffy cumulus cloud stretching off into the distance. It seems like a another lifetime.

Today my wife, Jacinta, and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. It’s a joyful day because we are a happy family with our mad little son but it’s also the first anniversary of Jacinta’s sister’s untimely passing from this world. We went for dinner this afternoon with her family and it was a cheerful gathering, but of course in quiet moments, one’s thoughts stray to Gerry who wasn’t there.

Blarney Canon 20D Canon 75-300 Cork Ireland Photos Sky Sun Urban

Great ball of flame

Great ball of flame

Sunrise over Blarney a few days ago. There was a thin layer of cloud on the horizon that nicely blocked out much of the light of the sun allowing me to capture this early morning sun.

It’s amazing to think that the light we see takes 8 minutes to travel the immense distance between the Sun and Earth. What’s even more remarkable is the thousands of years a photon can spend zinging back and forth inside the Sun before emerging as heat and light.

Glider EI-128 sitting on the sand at Inch Strand, Co. Kerry in 2006. I’ve posted a few photos of this glider in the past and I can safely say this is the last one unless I happen to see it again!

A Rainbow over Cobh

A Rainbow over Cobh

A rainbow brightens up the dark clouds threatening Cobh in Co. Cork in late 2006.

You can see Cobh Cathedral in the background, and I’d swear the boats in the foreground are still there in the same position all these years later ..

Call of the evening

A bird atop the light outside my house calls into the glowing evening sky heralding the end of 2007.

After walking Oscar I had to grab my camera and shoot the beautiful evening sky. The background was this colour, there’s no trickery here except a little vignetting and sharpening.

Bantry Canon 10-22 Canon 20D Cork Flowers Ireland Landscape Nature Photos

Mountain Daffodil

A daffodil in the garden of a house in the hills north east of Bantry Bay. I drove up there last Saturday morning and stopped when I saw the open gate. Wandering in the driveway I took a few shots of the view and then noticed these daffodils growing.

I prefer the daffodils. The day was too gloomy and the view wasn’t that great.

Dedicated to the memory of the three young men who lost their lives today in nearby Dunboy Castle.

Sunshine on the Conor Pass

This will probably be the final photo from that September 2006 visit to the Conor Pass. It’s taken earlier than some of the others but I’m a sucker for leading lines so it had to go in!
I love the reflection in the water on the valley floor, and the shadows of the clouds.

Must make a trip back there this summer!
