Sunset at Drake’s Pool

We took Oscar and ourselves for a walk in Drake’s Pool last Sunday. We arranged to meet Donal and Celine there.

While the girls enjoyed a leisurely walk, us guys trailed after them making photos of everything!

Drake’s Pool is just outside Crosshaven, and is named for Sir Francis Drake.

Oscar in the grass

Oscar sitting patiently for us while we finished a bbq at my sister-in-law’s house!

This required quite a bit of work because I had to clone out his lead, 3 garden chairs and the side of the bbq. Is it obvious where?

The Swan Gang

Tough looking swans gather for bread at the Lough in Cork for bread.

The problem with shooting dangerous wildlife with a wideangle lens is that unless you stick the camera in their faces nobody will believe you were risking life and limb by leaning down right next to them when shooting. Well, I was that close. *gulp*

See how the swan in the background is lunging for his neighbour with a wicked looking snap? He wasn’t the only one doing that!

Old rope tied to a rusty old screw embedded in weather beaten mortar at Church Bay near Crosshaven.

I used to dive off this rock about 10 years ago, mind you the tide was in whenever I did!
