King Goose

This is Emi, a resident of Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge on Sheep’s Head when we stayed there last year. He ruled the roost, where all the local ducks following him around. He even danced once, but I wasn’t lucky enough to see that, however there is video!

I can highly recommend a stay at this guest house, it’s run by lovely people who’ll really look after you, beds are comfortable, as is the sitting room and breakfasts are huge!

I may have dust on my camera sensor

One of the downsides of being able to change lens is the ever present danger of dust getting into the camera and coating the sensitive sensor. Every time the lens is taken off there’s a chance that dust will swirl into the cavity of the camera, attracted by the charged sensor on the back wall behind the mirror.

I took this photo sometime last year but never noticed the dust until later. I had a blower and soft brush with me so it was easy to clean the sensor.

Luckily removing the dust spots is fairly easy in Lightroom or any photo development application but this was easily the most dust I ever saw and was a rain pain to go over the whole image. (made easier by page up/down and the “visualise spots” setting, but still..)

Sheep’s Head Cat

Sheep's Head Cat

If you’ve been out to Sheep’s Head in Co Cork in the last year you may have come across this beautiful, friendly cat near the car park. I presume she lives in a nearby house. She had no problem with us stroking her and making friends with her but here she was warily watching some wandering cattle closely.
