A Couple and a Heron

A Couple and a Crane

While visiting Castletownbere I noticed two herons on the pier. They had a right ol’ fight. They were very aggressive! One flew away but this one was more adventurous looking for food.

The Weir in Ballincollig Regional Park

The Weir in Ballincollig Regional Park

On a particularly foggy morning in December 2002 I wandered around Ballincollig Regional Park. I photographed the weir that morning in the mist. Wasn’t much to be heard except the rushing of the water.

Some fifteen years later the centre of the weir would collapse. The OPW may rebuild it at a cost of over €1m. Hopefully that happens.

Surfing at Ardmore

Surfing at Ardmore

A brave young man surfs the waves at Ardmore, Co Waterford this afternoon. It was freezing, cold winds sucked any warmth from exposed skin but this guy was out there battling the waves!

Sunshine at Warren Beach

Sunshine at Warren Beach

The sun shines at Warren Beach near Rosscarbery in Co Cork last October. Some brave people ventured into the sea. It was a lovely day but not exactly “get into the sea” warm!

The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Gap of Dunloe in Co Kerry in February 2007. I was up there recently and it couldn’t have been more different. A storm blew down the valley making life miserable for anyone walking the roads or trying to take photos of this scenic area.

Love on the Lee

Love on the Lee

St Patrick’s Bridge in the background, pictured from Mary Elmes Bridge. A love lock on the fence but thankfully there aren’t many on it. Love locks are a serious problem for structures as they add unplanned weight.

Happy holidays! Hope you had a nice day today!
