Balydonegan Waves

Balydonegan waves first winds of October rise up the sea to create some nice rolling wave. I used a very high shutter speed of 1/8000th of a second and an ISO of 400 to get these shots. Some of the shots are not as sharp as I would have liked and I put this down to the cheap lens I was using. The lens was on infinity setting so there should be a sharp spot on each image. The effects of the frozen sea are quite good though.

West Cork Storms

West Cork Storms seem to be endless the last few weeks down here on the Beara peninsula it is causing some mighty havoc to the seas. Lots of damage to the coastline and indeed the electricity grid too. The wind has been knocking down electricity posts and the community have been experiencing power cuts of a few hours at a time. A series of photographs here from Garnish Pier, the Dursey Sound, Balydonegan and Reentrisk. It was difficult to keep the lens clean so some images are a bit smudged.

Neil visits Balydonegan

Neil visits Balydonegan Strand on a wet and windy January day to try out his new video camera in the car thanks to “le Parrain” Jean-Luc Raffa. A nice windy walk along the beach was great for Butter our dog to get out of the house and have a run. The old copper mines pier is very visible after many years thanks to the big storm that we had earlier in the month, which created lots of damage throughout Ireland.
