Amazing Blue Belles!

Posted by Tim on 15 May 2016 - 1:05pm in

This past Thursday, Kathy started a 10k walk with friends, Anne (from England), Anne (from Scotland) and Catherine (Cat, from America) in the middle of a small forest. The forest floor is covered in blue belles and white flowered wild garlic!  It is a brillinat flow of colour for about 3 weeks each year. Below are a few images of the forest floor, the path, and the walkers!

Another Storm - Another Shipwreck.

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 - Who Knew!

Posted by Tim on 26 March 2016 - 4:17pm

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!

                           Yes!  Full Sun for about 10 minutes, but it was worth the wait!

Sarah & Alvin's Wedding

Posted by Tim on 9 March 2016 - 4:12pm

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!
