Yellow and Fenced In

A flower or weed? A weed is only a flower in the wrong place, or so I’ve heard. This was taken at Seaside in Florida during the Automattic meetup there in 2010. Beautiful beach there, horrible humidity in September!

This will probably be my last post of the year here so happy new year and I hope 2012 is a great one for you!

Reflections of a fence

Reflections of a fence

That same fence again, this time against the setting sun and reflected in a pool of water from the recent rains. Loved taking this shot and others at the time, they turned out almost as good as I imagined they would!

My sister-in-law’s husband Ed has published a short story and is using one of my photos to illustrate it! Read Almost a Murder Story, the story of two boys living in the North Side of Cork City who planned a murder.

Conor Pass Hills and Clouds

This image broke my heart. I spent a long time trying to get the darkened sky layer and the brightened ground layer to merge nicely but I’m still not happy with it.

This small web version looks almost ok but I can still see the offending bits that are wrong.

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!

Canon 20D Dingle Fog Ireland Kerry Photos Sigma 10-20 Vehicles

I can hardly see myself

As I said previously, thick fog was rolling across the Conor Pass. It was frightening how fast it moved and the light and scene changed utterly.

Here’s it’s obscuring the road down the Pass, making the too-narrow road even more treacherous. I think by the time we left, even this stretch of road and the car park was covered in a thick white fog.

Don’t forget! If you’re around Cork on March 9th, head to the Lough for 3pm. I’m planning a photowalk around The Lough and all are welcome!

Clouds over the Conor Pass

I’m loath to post photos from the same location day after day but I may as well call this “Conor Pass Week” and get the rest of them out of the dark where they’ve languished since 2006.

After the reaction to yesterday’s Conor Pass photo hopefully you’ll like this one too.

I have another 2 or 3 taken at the same time. The day was perfect for photography, the light was strong and to the side, there was an interesting sky and of course the scenery is beautiful. That was a very successful trip!

Rusty old fence at the Conor Pass

A rusty old fence is all that protects you from a nasty fall down a fairly steep hill down to the valley floor at the Conor Pass.

Laneway fence

An old fence follows the road off into the distance at Wine Strand in the Dingle Peninsular, Co. Kerry.

Lines, lines everywhere, I love lines!

Windswept grass and fence

The tough grass by a beach in Kerry grows thick on this hill, bounded by a wire fence to keep curious people like myself at bay!

This is an experiment for me. I thought the b/w treatment would work well as the image is full of texture, lines and shadow. What do you think? Another similar one to follow tomorrow.
