It all seems to be happening so suddenly now! Tomorrow (Friday June 17) at 6.00 is the opening at Working Artist Studios in Ballydehob. It runs until July 8. There are 21 framed prints, mostly 12″ x 18″, and 21 unframed prints at 10″ x 15″, all part of a limited edition of 50 of each image. There is also a slideshow running on a computer monitor showing images of the musicians at work, accompanied by recordings from some of the sessions.
We always think of Ireland as the “Emerald Isle” and not without good reason. However, those beautiful green grasses can, at this time of year, turn a spectacular gold.
The first photo was local to us at Derryconnell. The next two were taken this week in the Borlin Valley on our way up to Tralee.
An excursion along the Dingle peninsula took in some beehive dwellings…
… and some rather spectacular sunbeams viewed from the long beach at Inch.
Over the last few months I have been trawling through the thousands of images on my hard drive and publishing some of those that I find interesting. As we enter a new year I find that I am beginning to “scrape the barrel” for a regular weekly post with a theme of some sort! I’m going to start this year with a different approach (which may or may not work) and post at random intervals when I find something I would like to share.
Over Christmas we had family visiting from UK and USA. We went for a walk at Three Castle Head on a stormy day – it is an amazing place, steeped in history.
A good day out…
On a dull grey day like today, I thought it would be an idea to add a bit of colour to brighten things up!
Water is the thing that this group of otherwise unrelated photos have in common. Sometimes still, sometimes flowing, sometimes frozen…..
I have another batch of photos of musicians creating music. As in previous posts, my intention was to try to capture the feel of the music in a visual format.
I have a few shots of the sky doing wonderful things. They could fit into several categories so I’ve placed them together here…..
We used to live near the coast on the Hampshire/Dorset border. Our local beaches were on the western approach to the Solent, the body of water between the Isle of Wight and the mainland. It is a varied shoreline, beautiful for walks and full of visual treats.
When we abandon or neglect the structures we have created, nature will inevitable reclaim them. This process has a fascination that combines the beauty of the original man made and exuberance of the incoming vegetation.
