Winter Sunrise over Blarney

The sun was slow to rise this day in January 2015. Photo taken from Monacnapa Estate in Blarney.

Unfortunately cars were slow that day too as the roads were so icy!

Blarney Castle in the Snow

Blarney Castle in the Snow

Snow fell last night in Ireland and everything came to a halt as people all over the country gasped in wonder at the strange white stuff on the ground. Thankfully it looks like it won’t last. We’re not equipped to deal with this sort of weather at all!

Blarney Castle opened later than usual but the paths were all cleared so of course I had to go tramping away in the snow covered grass..

Barren and Snow

Barren and Snow

This private road up to Blarney Castle was covered in snow, the trees were bare and every inch of grass wore the familiar white coat of a recent snow fall.

Taken yesterday morning while the snow fell. It’s -3C here in Blarney this morning and feels even colder! Brrrrr

Blarney in the Snow

Blarney in the Snow

It started to snow this morning in Blarney shortly after 6:30am and it has snowed continually for the last few hours. There’s a nice white coat on the grass and trees but the roads have turned to slush making them somewhat treacherous. They’ll be a lot worse if the snow freezes so I hope it all disappears nice and quickly!

Anchors and Tools

There’s rough ground next to the Opera House in Reykjavik, Iceland and what looks like reclaimation efforts nearby. This excavator, shovel and anchor are just left there next to parked cars. The snow covers the dark volcanic earth.

Derelict Reykjavik Highrises

What I’ve seen of Reykjavik so far has been really nice. Buildings are colourful, the streets are for the most part well maintained and the city centre has cobbled streets so it’s pleasant to walk around.

While on our photowalk today we passed these buildings on the sea front. I thought they were just another apartment building until I noticed that the balconies were fenced in by planks of wood held together loosely!

Shih Tzu dogs need a lot of grooming and Oscar is no exception. This is him in the snow on Christmas Day last year. Good thing he had all that fur as it was freezing!

Snowing in Blarney

It snowed in Blarney today. First snow of the season fell 2 days ago but was barely a few flakes that fell overnight. Today’s snow covered the area in a blank of white, but thankfully didn’t last too long! Roads are still affected and unfortunately there’s a steep hill coming into my estate.
