I’ve seen mountains and deserts and lakes and forests and ice caps and snow, but nothing in this world soothes my heart like the sea breeze, the cry of gulls and clouds hung low o’er the horizon.
Although the sky around the sun got blown out to fuck, I’m really happy with this spectacular cloudscape from over Dublin Bay. Going to work in the Baily Lighthouse has become a high point in my career. Every day something about the job lifts me up, like on Friday when we spotted a porpoise on […]
Taken on my way home from work in the rain last Wednesday. The effect came out great.
The new workplace in all its summer glory. :)
The two of us sat there hour with coffee as the storm bit by bit consumed the world.

Well as you could have guessed from the runs, I went to Strandhill last weekend with a friend. My most excellent company aside, it felt so good to be back in Sligo and the northwest for its own sake. I ran, we walked, we got burned under the sun and enjoyed fantastic food and beer […]
Took these back in early May on a gorgeous warm evening after a day out in Killiney and Dalkey.
In December I hiked the Western Way in Galway between Maam Cross and Oughterard. Timing from my phone and FitBit: 00:42:50 + 04:41:38 = 05:24:28 The part of the Way I hiked was 26 kilometres of spectacular rugged Connemara scenery-bogs, forests, mountains, lakes and rivers all in a breath of one another. Being out on […]

The beauty of transience-green yesterday, green tomorrow.

It’s pure fucking Leprechaun magic, how it rained in Galway for a straight fucking week. The fuck.
What a fantastic start to my winter holidays!
Taking while on a hike with a Meetup.com hillwalking group. Absolutely stunning day.
