Photography 101 : Home

Home is elusive. When we think about this word, we might picture different physical locations. And while home is often found on a map, it can also be less tangible: a loved one, a state of mind.

 

For my first entry for Photography 101, here is a photo of my home town – a view of Cork Harbour looking up towards Cork City. Welcome to my home, and I hope you come and visit again.

Out of the Mist

Bluebells and Wild Garlic

Yesterday was a misty day in Ireland, and I was on a morning hike in Crosshaven, in County Cork. As this village is on the coast, the mist was slow to rise, and you will see from the photos that this made the scenes very eerie at times.    We walked from the village through a wood where the predominant smell was that of the wild garlic which is blooming everywhere at this time. There were also a lot of bluebells in bloom, which were very pretty under the trees.  A word of warning though, watch your step in the mud, or you may end up like this!

A Word a Week Photograph Challenge : Atmospheric

Following on from my post on the fallen trees in Currabinny Woods yesterday, I thought I should also show you some calmer photos for this week’s challenge.   Atmospheric photos of the seashore always bring holidays and sunny days to mind, and I hope you enjoy them.

The After Shock of the Storm

At the weekend my friend and I went walking very close to home, in Currabinny Woods.   This is a popular walking spot, and has many varieties of broad leafed trees, like beech, oak, sycamore, as well as Scots Pine.    The woods are in a very beautiful spot in Cork Harbour, and have great views across to Crosshaven and out to Roches Point.   At the summit of the woods, there is an old cairn, and also a gazebo erected in years gone by so that the residents nearby could enjoy the view of  the harbour.

The main thing that struck us on our walk, though, was the devastation caused by the recent storm, and the amount of big trees that had been damaged.  Some of them were not uprooted, probably because of there being so many trees close together, but were ripped apart higher up on the trunks.   We hope that the live parts of the trees left standing will be able to continue to grow and heal themselves.

Even with all the damage, Currabinny is still a great place for a Sunday stroll.
