Long Grass

This shot taken low in the long grass overlooking the Atlantic in Balydonegan bay, Allihies, Beara, Co. Cork, Ireland. The grass is finally getting long after our extended winter and the farmers should be out in a week or so to cut the grass for silage ready for next years winter.

Jimmys bar

Jimmys bar is really a nice bar and the man behind the bar, Jimmy is a good guy. Here he is from last night after the mine museum concert.

There is a shutter for the bar hanging up on the ceiling, next time you go to Jimmy’s take a look at it. The bar in older days was only half the size it is now and the miners used to get paid in the bar, but according to law they were not allowed to be paid in a place of drink, so the shutter was closed until they were all paid and then opened to get their money off of them…

My uncles have always enjoyed having their photo taken and I am especially lucky as I am their nephew it brings down the barriers and I can get some nice shots that probably nobody else would be allowed to take. I made the third photo here basically as an exercise to myself in photoshop as I liked the idea of highlighting the Saxa peper pots.
