The Fountainstown Wreck

The Fountainstown Wreck

Tucked away behind Fountainstown Beach is a wrecked boat that has been there for many years. I wonder how many people know it’s there?

Fountainstown Beach in April

Fountainstown Beach in April

Who wouldn’t go to the beach on a blustery, showery day? A cold wind blew off the land on to Fountainstown Beach and the sky would change as quickly as anything. Such happened here when the sun peeked through the clouds for a few moments and we were suddenly sweltering. It didn’t take long before we felt first few drops of rain however.

This is the original photo for comparison. I love what I can do quickly and easily with Lightroom!

Bubbling Water

Bubbling Water

Water flows down to the beach at Fountainstown, bubbling as it goes over rocks and seaweed.

PS. I’ve reduced the cost of all prints by about $50 to $80 for the largest size framed prints. Most of the cost goes towards manufacturing and my markup is only 20% on all prints. Check ’em out in my gallery and of course if a photo on the site takes your interest contact me and let me know!

Wet, shiny stones

Wet, shiny stones

The outgoing tide on Fountainstown Beach leaves behind wet stones and seaweed as it retreats.

This is a long exposure shot of one second with my camera resting on one of those rocks!

By the time you read this I’ll be on a plane, in the air most likely, or waiting for a connection in Heathrow more likely. More details to follow.

Fountainstown Sunset

Fountainstown Sunset

The beach at Fountainstown in County Cork faces east but in the twilight there’s still a glow in that direction. This was shot with my 50mm lens, really close to the surface of the water there while gentle waves lapped the shoreline.

Unfortunately as a result I had set the focus point so the water would be in focus and today forgot to change it, thus ruining a nice photograph at a family occasion. Then the focus somehow got kicked into manual on my 18-200 lens and ruined another few photos. Oh well.

Love this shot though!

Springer at Fountainstown

Springer at Fountainstown

I always have a soft spot for Springer Spaniels. The beaches at Myrtleville and Fountainstown seem to be a favourite haunt of them if our experiences are anything to go by. Here’s a Springer that played with my son Adam at the beach in Fountainstown. They had a great time together!

Almost recovered. Stomach is still grumbling but the huge weakness I felt yesterday and this morning is gone. Relieved.
