Shades of gold and brown were everywhere in November. This shot in Fitzgerald Park, Cork captured the wonderful display while kids and parents congregated around the playground.
Winter is almost upon us and we’ve had plenty of cold days so my son was amazed when he saw a ladybird on a wall yesterday! I can’t imagine how it survived but maybe he had a secret hideout with a roaring fire going in the hearth and comfy chairs and lots of cups of hot chocolate. Yeah, he did. And he’s back there now supping on a delicious beverage. Enjoy, little guy.
The River Martin flows through Blarney village and into the grounds of Blarney Castle. This photo was made moments before the sunlight trees one I posted a few days ago. Beautiful morning, and there’s one more photo to come! 🙂
It was another foggy morning in Blarney but not as bad as the last one. This time I had my camera with me and walked up to Blarney Castle where I got some nice shots of the trees, fog and river. I loved the sight of the morning sunlight streaming through the trees and fog. It was a gorgeous, crisp morning for a walk.
I also took a photosphere but you’ll have to hop over to Google Plus to see that!
The Shaky Bridge, Or Daly’s Bridge, spans the River Lee near Fitzgerald Park in Cork City.
Blarney House, an impressive building on the grounds of Blarney Castle in Co. Cork, Ireland. It’s a private residence but during the summer there are guided tours every half hour.
Flowers in the gardens of Blarney Castle.
Never once in my wildest nightmares did I ever imagine that I’d post a camera phone image as a single post but here it is. Taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4. There’s obvious JPEG artefacts when you view the original at 100% but this 800×600 pixel image is good enough for web viewing and Lightroom does wonders even with JPEG files.
I’ve posted many more photos from the S4 on my Google Plus account but they’re straight from the camera and “enhanced” by G+ and still look pretty good!
Some of the boats that have taken up semi-permanent residence in Cobh pictured in 2006. I think some of those boats are still there!
That was a beautiful but cold January evening.

Cherry blossom trees never fail to make my wife Jacinta gasp as they’re so beautiful. This one is in the grounds of Blarney Castle and I don’t think she knows (or she’s forgotten) it’s there!
Many years ago I posted another photo of cherry blossom on the day of our wedding. It’s not quite that day yet but I wanted to share this photo today as it’s so nice outside this morning.
