Grey Heron at Cahir, Co. Tipperary : 11/Project 52

I came across this grey heron totally by accident in Cahir, Co. Tipperary ; it was standing in the weir just opposite Cahir Castle. Over a period of about 5 minutes this heron did not move, apart from tipping the flowing water with its’ right foot.

St. Patricks Well, Co. Tipperary – Photo of the Week

This photo is one I took a few weeks ago but only got round to working on now. It is St. Patrick’s Well near Clonmel in Co. Tipperary. An area which I never knew about, but one which is very beautiful and a must see if you are into photography, as there are many places to get some nice shots. This photo (my photo of the week for this week) is of a small cascade or water outlet and it […]
