Lighthouse Loophead


Loop Head is a peninsula on the west-coast of Ireland at the end of the Shannon Estuary. A wonderful place to sit in the grass and watch the dolphins and the clouds go by.

Stone Wall in Co. Clare

There are a lot of spaces between the stones so the strong winds can't blow the wall down.

Stone Walls and Fields

Over many many years this fields were cleared from the stones. The walls protect from the wind and are bounderies for the fields.

Weekend in Black and White: Playing

Another scan, this time from a slide. The image was taken on Inch Beach , Dingle Peninsula in Ireland. I like the playing of children when time itself is forgotten.

Rocks in the Burren

My favourite region in Ireland is the Burren. The Burren is a limestone landscape located in the north of Co. Clare. There a large cave systems in the underground and terraced hills and flat pavements with a wide horizon. It's a mixture of barren and fertile, horizontal and vertical, wild and domestic, loneliness and sociability, bare ground and a mixture of flowers unique in the world.

Liscannor Bay

After weeks of very dry weather the first dark clouds arriving from the Atlantic. The light on the sea has a special quality. I enjoy the fast change. Sometimes you can see a spot wandering over land and sea.

Flowering Wild Garlic in Coole Park, Gort



Coole Park in Gort, Co. Galway, Ireland is one of my favourit places in spring. There are abundant flowers of wild garlic and of harebells and beautiful old trees.

The Coole Estate was purchased by Robert Gregory in 1768. It remained with the Gregory family until 1927 when it was sold to the state. Residing there at that time was Lady Augusta Gregory, a dramatist, folklorist and so-founder with W. B. Yeats and Edward Martyn of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. Coole Park is immortalized by Yeats in his writings and those of her famous guests.

"These woods have been well loved, well tended by some who came before me, and my affections has been no less than theirs. The generations of trees have been my care, my comforters. Their companionship has often brought me peace."
Lady Gregory, Coole 1931
