Loch Lein 3

Here is your Sky Watch Friday image.

We continue the sequence of images from Lough Lein with the above image. In this image you have full view of the mad cloud formation which is partly in view in the Louch Lein post. Also you can see the path (just to the right of the tree) from the Loch Lein 2 post. The Castlelough Bay is a wonderful horse shoe shape bay on both sides of the castle.

As you can see I have change the style of the bog. I wanted to try and keep it as close to my main website style ( www.blackandwhite.ie ) as possible.

A mad busy weekend in store as it’s my daughters 10th birthday, with a party for the class mates on Saturday then the neighbours on Sunday in Dublin Zoo and to round the weekend off the grandmothers on Monday (it’s a holiday weekend here in Ireland).

Loch Lein 2

Here is your My World image.

First of, may I say a thank you too all for the comments on my images over the past couple of weeks. I have been very busy of late and have not got a chance to look t as many other sites as possible. Things are now back to normal now, so I have more time too look around.

I think I made history yesterday:-
The first Irishman to shoot some people outside Buckingham Palace in England and not get arrested by the police. ????????
Figure that one out and I will give you the answer at the end of the the post.

Now lets get back to photography. The above image is part of the series of images taken in Killarney a couple of weeks ago from The Lake Hotel as mentioned in the previous post. This one was taken form the Castle itself ( MacCarthy Mor Castle ). Again the previous post will explain all. It shows Lough Lein or the lower lake and what’s called the Bay of Castlelough. This was most likely a small harbour to tie the boats on come ashore at the Castle.

What I like about this image is the path leads you into the image and the contrast between the shapes of the stones and the shapes of the clouds in the sky.

OK here is your answer to the riddle above:
The people were running and I was shooting them with a camera. Yes I am talking about the London Marathon. I was over in London at the weekend working on the marathon for a company called Marathon Foto. I was positioned right outside Buckingham Palace for over 5 hours and in that time took just under 12,000 photos of the runners.

On holidays in Killarney, the Turin Marathon and then the London Marathon, the reason for the lack of posts and comments.

Loch Lein

Here is your Monochrome Maniacs image.

What we have here is an image showing Tomies Mountain, Purple Mountain, Castlelough Bay and the MacCarthy Mor Castle. This is the view that can be seen from the grounds of The Lake Hotel. If you go to the link for the Hotel’s website and download the Brochure pdf you will be able to locate my camera positions for the above image and the following post over the next few days.

Newfoundland Bay 2

Here is your Scenic Sunday image.

Newfoundland Bay, Upper Lake, Killarney, the image I was looking for before I turned around to find the views in the previous posts.

It was a long wait to get this image. I think I stood here for well over a hour talking to myself and a couple of swans, until the light was right. It’s not the image I was after but we can’t control the weather and have to make do with the conditions before us. So I waited to see if the sun would shine on the mountains in the distance. It came out for a minute or so and lite up the mountain top. And that was it, the image above. After the minute or so the light changed again but was too dull to continue. So I changed direction and got the images below.

Next week I will continue the series from Killarney with some images form the grounds of The Lake Hotel with views of Loch Lein or the Lower Lake.
