Loading the containers

Loading a container ship in Malaga Harbour. The sun has already set but there’s a lovely glow in the sky!

Trying something new this time. You’ll probably have the visit the site to get the full effect. I’ll be uploading these images to Instagram shortly.

As before, these images were cut up with the convert command:

Malaga after the sun set

A wide angle view of the sun set, reflected in the water.

If the sky is right, Málaga harbour has some stunning sunsets. The colours of the sky are reflected in the waters of the harbour. The industrial and urban buildings on the far shore make for pleasing silhouettes defined by the setting sun.

The Ferris Wheel after Sunset

The top half of the Ferris Wheel on Grand Parade with St. Fin Barr's Cathedral in the background and the sky is a lovely orange and purple

The Ferris Wheel on Grand Parade in Cork pictured just after sunset, in December 2016. This year the wheel is further up the street so you can’t get this photo now.

I haven’t been in town at sunset this month either but hopefully someone got a nice sunset photo of the wheel this year.

Herre’s the plane

a Liebherr branded construction crane with an airplane flying far above it

From the Lee Fields, in August this year. A construction crane working on the student accommodation with an aeroplane that took off from Cork Airport high above it and rising fast, off somewhere, hopefully warm.

TIL I’ve been spelling aeroplane wrong for years.

An evening above Dunquin Pier

An evening above Dunquin Pier

Dunquin Pier at the end of the Dingle Peninsula sits below a steep grassy cliff. Last year I saw three teenage girls sitting on the edge of the cliff you can see in this photo. I got dizzy just looking at them but they weren’t in (much) danger. There’s a step below where many feet have worn away the grass.
