The boats of Gougane Barra

The boats of Gougane Barra

Another early morning sunrise photo at Gougane Barra with Blarney Photography Club. Way back in 2016 I published a similar photo but the Gougane Barra boats were swapped. They’ve been there quite some time!

Oh Look! The LÉ Samuel Beckett

Oh Look! The LÉ Samuel Beckett

I was photographing a paddle boarder off Fountainstown Beach this evening when suddenly a ship sailed into the viewfinder.

It’s the LÉ Samuel Beckett sailing into Cork Harbour at a quick pace. She crossed the distance visible from the beach quickly but I’m glad I got a few photos of her!

Sunrise over Muckross Lake

Sunrise over Muckross Lake

An early morning drive to the Lakes of Killarney this morning resulted in an eventful trip for Blarney Photography Club today. Rain didn’t spoil the sunrise, but a trip afterwards to the Gap of Dunloe didn’t go so well with a literal storm blowing up between the hills.

The photo above is from Dinis Cottage if you’re interested. Lovely walk down there and so picturesque!

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra, where the River Lee rises and the location of a monastery Saint Finbarr built in the 6th century. A modern chapel, called St Finbarr’s Oratory dates back to 1903.

The image above is a HDR panorama of 9 photos merged together in Lightroom and is a result of a very early visit with Blarney Photography Club this morning. The spectacular light was totally worth getting up at 5am for!

The sun peeks out over Killaloe

The sun peeks out over Balina, Co Tipperary

Looking out over the River Shannon from the Balina side to the town of Killaloe on the west bank of the river.

Hmm, I do believe this is the first photo I have posted in Tipperary, and half the photo is in Co Clare!
