The Idle Tower

An image of Irelands wonderful foolishness. The Elysian Tower is the country's tallest building, constructed during the 'tail' end of the Celtic Tiger era at a cost of €150million, boasting 211 luxury apartment within a price range (in 2008) of between €375k & €2 million. It is a constant reminder to not only the Cork people but internationally of how the upper echelons of our society lost the run of themselves. As they say a picture speaks a thousand words!!

The Night Blue

Taken well past sundown at Myrtleville, Co.Cork, an exposure of 160 seconds moved the sea to an idyllic and peaceful calmness. If you look closely you will notice two moving lights on the horizon which were that of Irish Naval vessels patrolling the area.


What a cutie Hannah is!! She changed her pose every time she heard the camera click. She's a real natural! Taken during a family portrait session in a field of rolled bales of barley straw. It was great fun. :o)
