The Golden Fields of Ballycotton

The Golden Fields of Ballycotton

At certain times of the year the Ballycotton cliff walk allows you to walk next to rich golden fields under blue skies.

Not at this time of year obviously. This was in July 2011!

A Storm in the Gap of Dunloe

A Storm in the Gap of Dunloe

Heavy rain and strong gusts of wind were the order of the day in the Gap of Dunloe when Blarney Photography Club visited last month. Made for atmospheric photos if you could keep your camera dry!

The sunrise flows

The sunrise flows over the hill

Because of the disc’s enormous magical field, at sunrise, the morning light flows over like thick golden syrup, accumulating in valleys and then slowly crawling over the top of an hillside. The same can be said about the night, which spreads like plum jam.

The Ballydehob Bridge

The Ballydehob Bridge

Early in October we were lucky to have some wonderful weather for almost hours at a time. I spent some of that time in Ballydehob taking photos of the fabulous bridge there.

Ten minutes later it started raining and I was running to the car!

Stormy Clouds Over The Beara Peninsula

Stormy Clouds Over The Beara Peninsula

Storm clouds rolled in as I tried to shoot the sunset from Sheep’s Head. The sun had already dipped by this time and I was rushing to get a few photos before the rain came. Luckily there was time but ominous clouds were overhead as I ran back to the car at the last minute!

Sunrise over Muckross Lake

Sunrise over Muckross Lake

An early morning drive to the Lakes of Killarney this morning resulted in an eventful trip for Blarney Photography Club today. Rain didn’t spoil the sunrise, but a trip afterwards to the Gap of Dunloe didn’t go so well with a literal storm blowing up between the hills.

The photo above is from Dinis Cottage if you’re interested. Lovely walk down there and so picturesque!
