Center of attention at the aquarium in Dingle.
The Milky Way captured from inside Teide National Park.
This is a stacked image created from 19 images of the sky and 10 “noise” images. It was assembled in Sequator using this video tutorial to help me figure out how to use it. Final adjustments in Lightroom.
Getting to Teide National Park, inside a volcano, involves a long car journey going up. We were around 2300m above sea level when I took this photo, and it takes about an hour to drive here from the coast. Driving up the whole time. Quite an experience, especially after midnight. Out of the corner of my eye I spotted the lights of the resorts far below which made my stomach turn briefly, but the road was simple to follow. It just kept going up and up…
I was amazed when we got there finally. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many stars. The night sky was so dark the stars lit up brightly. Unfortunately clouds rolled in as we were taking photos but this image was the first stack I made, and the cloud hadn’t become too thick yet.
Thanks Henry for the lend of the 14mm Samyang lens. It was great having that extra wide lens!
Spotted in Edinburgh in 2018 on a meetup there. Lovely skies, lovely weather. We were very lucky that week!
Older visitors will recognise this poster if they were around Cork in 2005 when the city was “European Capital of Culture”.
This poster was draped over the city library, and I was very lucky to capture a tour bus as it drove past on a fine June day, exactly 17 years ago today.

If you’ve been to Blarney recently you won’t have seen this house. It was cleared several years ago and is now an open stretch of grass, and new wooden buildings used by the staff of Blarney Castle.

The bus stops on St. Patrick’s Quay are being moved to various locations around the city disrupting the future travel arrangements of people who use them.
You used to be able to get a bus from west Cork to the city, walk to the next bus stop and hop on a bus to Dublin but now they’ll be in separate parts of the city.
Not exactly encouraging for people with mobility issues.
Not much use for a night club in the middle of a blistering hot day in Tenerife.
We’ve seen a lot of the Ukraine flag in the last few months following the invasion of that country by Russia. Before that I didn’t realise the wall facing the Centra in Dingle had the same colours. Looking the worse for wear and not the right shades of course.
A book stall in Bristol, by the river. Some good stuff here!
