Along the Marina

Along the Marina

Looking along the Marina in Blackrock on a quiet Friday afternoon. The trees have started to shed their leaves, but the recent rains must be helping. The heatwave in August has passed. I still see plenty of green.

The Hills of Five Finger Strand

The Hills of Five Finger Strand

Five Fingers Strand in Co Donegal on a beautiful July evening in 2018. The sun was setting soon, and the light was barely turning golden, casting shadows on the hills overlooking the water.

Heron in the River Lee

A heron waiting for fish to swim past on the weir in the River Lee.

While on an outing with Blarney Photography Club to the Lee Fields, we were lucky enough to see a very patient heron attempt to catch his dinner.

The light was falling, and it cast a lovely warm glow on everything.

The heron did catch a fish eventually. I was 100m away down river and on hearing a shout looked up and caught a very blurry photo of the bird with the fish in it’s mouth.

The North Side

The North Side

The north side of Cork City, looking at the Cathedral of St. Mary & St. Anne and the Church of the Ascension, Gurranabraher.

Prompted by a photo I saw Joe Healy post this morning on Twitter. It hasn’t changed much since 1984.

A fish out of water

A fish out of water

A fish jumps out of the water of the River Lee by the Lee Fields in Cork a few weeks ago.

Most of the fishermen gathered on the banks had no luck. The fish were after the little flies buzzing over the water!

Belem and Grace O’Malley in Cork

Belem and Grace O'Malley in Cork

Belem, a French tall ship, was docked in Cork Harbour until 10am this morning. There was a mostly disappointing sunset last night, but the sky did light up briefly just at the horizon.

The masts and rigging of the Grace O’Malley, the new sail training ship can be seen in the background. It was a lovely evening to be out taking photos.
