All the boats at Navy Pier

Lots of boats seen in the water at Navy Pier in Chicago. A Ferris Wheel can be seen in the background.

Numerous boats are tied up at Navy Pier in Chicago, as well as a small U.S. Coast Guard boat.

This was away back in 2003. I have no idea what the place looks like now!

On the Onyar River

The Onyar River that flows through Girona in Spain with colourful buildings and a blue sky

The Onyar River flows through the city of Girona in Spain. Photographed in August when I was surprised to see any water at all considering the dreadful drought that hit Europe in the summer.

Colourful buildings line the banks of the river and the Cathedral can be seen in the background of a clear blue sky.

A Dipper we spotted in the Killarney recently. He stayed on that rock for a few minutes, letting us take photos of him at our leisure!

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.

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!

Flowers and Aquaduct in Ballydehob

Flowers and Aquaduct in Ballydehob

On a beautiful October afternoon in Ballydehob and the last thing I needed to worry about was swans, unlike an unfortunate day in 2004 when they didn’t like me taking their photos.

The Valletta Skyline

When we stayed in Valletta in Malta a few years ago there were several thunder storms. I hardly saw any lightning but dark clouds accompanied them and in the evenings blotted out the sun as it set over the city and The Grand Harbour.
