Just popping in to say that after 4 years of bliss and smooth sailing in my main Discus tank I woke yesterday to find every fish in the tank dead :( A faulty heater had stuck on 'on' and you could feel the heat coming from the tank from...

    From Twilight To Dawn

    A sequence of photographs taken at Poulnabrone Dolmen, located in the heart of the Burren in Co. Clare, Ireland. The area is a strange and beautiful landscape of weathered limestone and the first farmers here used the slabs of limestone to build this tomb almost 6,000 years ago. Many people...

    Dawn Reflections

    While on the way back from a photo trip to a magical five stone circle in Co. Kerry, the south west of Ireland, I drove past this little fishing pier at the side of the lakes. It was pitch dark when I was on my way past before dawn, when I passed again this made me slam on the brakes an run to...

    Break Of Dawn

    Beltany Tops is one of Irelands oldest stone circles, some experts think it may be the first stage of the change from passage tomb kerbstones to open air stone circles. It is fairly massive though partly ruined. This was taken at Dawn 16th October this year.

    No 'Mere' Cats!

    The Meerkats are one of my favourite small animals, they are so alert and worried looking, they even make smaller twittering, worrying sounds! The electrician was in the enclosure fixing their heat lamp at the time I was there, it was so funny to see them using 'tactics' and charging him to bite...

    Sorrento, Italy, 2 pics

    Two pics of Sorrento on the west coast of Italy where we spent the first few nights of our honeymoon. We had dinner in a nice restaurant in the small harbour (Marina Grande) which is actually on stilts above the water so I could get a nice shot of the harbour at night from our table. The second...

    No need to introduce these pics! I indulged in a couple of new lenses on holiday, these were taken with the new Tamron 11-18 Super Wide angle, I'm amazed at the quality of this less expensive lens.

    Boots in a Barrel

    Just as it says: A pair of boots sticking out of a barrel. Anyone who has ever gone to a concert in Slane Castle is probably familiar with these legs sticking out of the barrel outside a pub near Slane, they've been there as long as I can remember, maybe over 30 years and I've wanted to stop by...
