Blarney Castle as seen this evening. The garden’s looking amazing and it’s nice to see the new statues and art over the last few days.
Shot with my Galaxy S4, so apologies for the Jpeg artefacts. It’s a HDR image and it’s really pushing the sensor!
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.
We had thick white fog this morning in Blarney. At it’s worst I could probably see about twenty metres before everything became a white haze.
Shot on my Galaxy S4 and developed in Lightroom.
This morning my son and I joined other parents and children to walk to school. It was a beautiful morning and I captured the glow of the early morning sun before it broke over the horizon and over the roof of Blarney Woollen Mills.
Early morning in Blarney, Co Cork. Including a tent erected in the green area in the middle of the village. Nobody tell Charles!
Blarney Post Office through the windscreen of my car. More rain.
Fresh Bread delivered to the Castle Hotel, Blarney this morning.
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!
