Mountains in South Kerry - a start

South Kerry Camera Clubs next exhibition is upon us and because I did not really take any new photos of Mountains I checked my "archive" and changed a few photos I took
in late November at Waterville Lake into black/white and gave them all a square format.
I don´t know is it exhibition material, if the weather wasn´t so ...awful I´d go out and take new mountain photos,
not as high up as Cnoc na d´Tobar though.

Michael went up Cnoc na dTobar on the one nice day in a while to get a few new photos maybe for the forthcoming exhibition in Tech Amergin in February. They are on his blog if you want to see them.

St Finian´s Bay on New Year´s Day 2012

It is a short and still lovely walk from the beach in St. Finian´s Bay, along the lower road to the pier and back.
The fast moving clouds provided a spectactular background and the swell of the sea was quite dramatic. The seagulls were all excited about something, probably their food churned up and tossed about by the waves and the wind.

New Year´s day in our garden

Daffodils on New years´s Day

Robin, well fed

First geraniums in bloom
Spring seems to be on its way, the daffodils are out quite early, in fact they started showing their yellow heads after Christmas. I dont know is it a good sign, or is the climate change upon us...
they are still very much appeciated as a sign of new life in nature.

New Year in Port Magee

                                                            The old year goes down

                                                                    Flames in the night

                                                                  Pipers on the march

                                                               The tired old year
