The Irish RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) pulled 3 fishermen from the sea, near the mouth of the Kinsale Harbour last night, 10 April, 2016. The fishing trawler got into trouble in the middle of a bad storm that began earlier in the day. Below is a couple of shots during the storm, and then a couple that shows the ship the next morning . . .
Nohoval Cove. We have been living 25 minutes from this incredible landscape for over 3 years, and just discoved it THIS WEEK! How can an incredible display of God's handiwork of this nature go unnoticed by me?! A great lad from the camera club I belonged to in Dublin came all the way to Kinsale to show our Kinsale Photographic Society his work, and then asked me to take him to Nohoval Cove! I found it the day before he arrived, with the help of another camera club friend here. Lots of great friends with people who also love photography!
Waiting for the sun to rise and hoping for a break in the clouds . . .
It's coming through . . . just starting!
Yes! Full Sun for about 10 minutes, but it was worth the wait!
My friend from Dublin, getting setup!
It has happened! Sarah & Alvin are now married and I didn't take a single photo at the cerimony! Something about being the Father of the Bride that limits photo taking ability! Kathy and I are so happy for Sarah and Alvin as their wedding day has finally come. Even though it rained steadily the entire day, that did not limit the beauty of the God honouring cerimony, outside under a large marquee (tent). We are excited for them both as they pledged their lives together to the glory of God.
Okay, even though I have no photos from the cerimony, I do have a few hundred from the reception/lunch! This was a 10:00am wedding, followed by a luncch reception in a close-by venue . . . here's a couple images!
Today, Kathy took to the skies, beginning our travel to California for Sarah & Alvin's wedding, on 5 March. She is going by way of Louisville, KY where she will spend 4 days with Matt, Christie and 3 of our grands. I will follow in one week and go directly to San Jose to get ready for everyone else in the family to join us over the coming few days . . . exciting times! Kathy's flight out of Dublin was delayed by about 3 hours so we are praying she will be able to make her connections.
Last week, speaking of skys, 3 of us set out to photograph an amazing night sky, with no moon! It was cold, but worth the shivers to try to capture a tiny bit of the glory in which God has painted his sky! Wow, here's a feeble attempt to convey some of what we saw!

Same scene a bit later . . . more stars above.
Loads more stars in this tiny sliver of the Milky Way
