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!

A flash in the night

Just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit Ireland properly in late February 2020 Blarney Photography Club had an evening session dedicated to flash photography. I’ve already posted a couple of the photos from that night but here are a few more from the night of February 20th, 2020, or 2020-02-20!

Queuing for Gorbys

Queuing for Gorbys

A bunch of lads queuing for Gorbys on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork in 2007. Nightclubs are due to open soon again.

2,399 new cases of Covid-19 today. Even with vaccination I think we can expect a huge surge in about two weeks. I’ll be glad if I’m wrong.

The Sunset Tree

The Sunset Tree

If you’ve ever been to Kinsale and looked across the water at the houses on the waterfront this tree sits in the garden in front of one. I stood just outside their driveway and caught a lovely sunset behind it one lovely July day 2019.

Yes, there is a bird in the photo too.
