Bantry Boat Cork Ireland Nature Photos Sea Sigma 10-20

The Boats of Bantry

Boats tied up at the quay in Bantry two weeks ago. Bantry was once criss-crossed with waterways like Venice is today but those are long gone. The sea is still an important part of the culture of the town.

If you’re interested in the history of the region, here’s a page from westcork.com on the subject.

Old Rope

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!

Cobh Boats

I would hazard a guess that these boats are a semi-permanent feature of the Cobh seafront as they’re berthed there each time I have visited!
I love the cobbles of the slipway, and the way the water catches theevening light.

Looks like I’m not the only photoblogger to visit Lanzarote recently!

Waves Crashing

It’s very difficult to stop waves. You’ll need a fast shutter speed. If you don’t have a fast lens then stopping down a notch or third, or increasing the ISO will help too.
This image was originally quite bland with washed out waves and dark rocks but a little dodging and burning with a soft layer worked wonders!

This was taken in Dunworley, Co. Cork yesterday.
