The Stars of Cork are Glowing

The Stars of Cork are Glowing

Here’s another shot of the ferris wheel and the lights of Cork City along the River Lee from earlier this month. It’s taken from a location near where I shot my previous Glow photo. I prefer this one however, the colours are more saturated, the starlike effect is enhanced and the angle is more interesting. What do you think?

Sunrise over Blarney

This is the view that greeted me a few days ago from my office. I wouldn’t post it except that today is wet and gloomy and I want to remember what a nice sunrise looks like instead of the grey cloud I’m looking at now.

The Midleton Food & Drink Festival is this weekend. I went there last year and got some nice photos of a martial arts demo and we’ll hopefully head down tomorrow if the weather improves. You really want good weather because the town will be so packed with people you’ll hardly be able to move!

There’s something up with Flickr’s email uploader. I sent this photo off twice and it didn’t appear in my stream. I had a similar problem yesterday but the photo appeared on the second go. Manual upload and “Blog This” saved the day though!
