The biggest drip in Cobh

A water tap on the quay in Cobh, Co. Cork drips slowly into the sea.

This is a favourite photo of mine.

A Rainbow over Cobh

A Rainbow over Cobh

A rainbow brightens up the dark clouds threatening Cobh in Co. Cork in late 2006.

You can see Cobh Cathedral in the background, and I’d swear the boats in the foreground are still there in the same position all these years later ..

Going Overboard

Bertie’s going overboard today, hopefully. As I write this Bertie Ahern is speaking and it sounds like a resignation speech. I haven’t heard an apology for lying under oath and deceiving the public yet however.

Unfortunately we’re all going to forget this by the next election. Hopefully the other parties will make hay while the sun shines.

Posting this today as Miriam’s photo of the same sign reminded me I had shot this at Allihies Beach in Co. Cork.
It’s appropriate too.

Edit – he’s out. Bertie Ahern will resign on May 6th 2008.

Rusty old fence at the Conor Pass

A rusty old fence is all that protects you from a nasty fall down a fairly steep hill down to the valley floor at the Conor Pass.

Looks like rain in Ballycotton

Threatening clouds over Ballycotton Harbour in Co. Cork. This was taken way back in 2006 on a nice September afternoon.

Lots done to this image, including overlay layers, and layer masks and other fun.

Spectators on the beach

The hang gliding crowd attracted a bit of a crowd on Inch Beach in 2006. Well, it was late September and there wasn’t that many people on the beach in the first place, so 2 people isn’t so bad, eh?

Hunger got the best of us and we watched as a powered plane flew high up in the air. I don’t think any of the gliders made it up that day because the winds weren’t right.

Ballycotton Fishing Boats

Fishing boats crowd the harbour in Ballycotton on a warm August afternoon.

This was taken in 2006, when I think I shot the rest of my Ballycotton images. I love the imposing clouds and the leading lines of the bows.

The sandy beach at Couminole

I photographed the beach at Couminole on the Dingle Peninsula back in 2006 when there was a beach there. There was no sand to be seen during repeated visits there in September 2007.

I had actually quite forgotten I had taken this so it was nice to see the lovely sandy beach!

Trivia – a well known member of Mallow Camera Club who shall remain nameless was caught by the tide and had to remain sitting on the rocks for several hours in wet, foggy and rough conditions until the tide went out again.
