More abandoned buildings today. In Ireland you find tower houses. Big mansions with (surprise ;) ) some kind of watch tower. I should find some photo’s of a tower house restored but this small one I found driving along Killarney National Park. Just after a sharp bend in the road it was standing there in the sun. I did climb over a few fences that weekend…
I simply can’t get enough of driving along those beautiful (but bumpy and with too many sharp bends and fast driving locals!) roads along the Irish coast. Or of posting pictures taken there for that matter! Today another picture taken along the Ring of Kerry.
It is an HDR image, does anyone have any advice on what software to use for processing HDR’s? I’ve used Photomatix and PS6 before. What do you feel is the easiest and most flexible?
When I moved to Ireland I brought my car from The Netherlands. That was such a good decision! Dublin is a nice place to stay for a while but Ireland gets really beautiful once you leave the city and explore small country roads.
Luckily it is not too hard to move a car around within the EU, I have a few more months before I’ll have to sort out how to officially import the car and see to it that I get an Irish licence plate. I briefly looked into it before and somehow it reminds me of Indian bureaucracy… To be continued!
For now I get to plan the next road-trip starting tomorrow, towards Connemara national park. We have some visitors so it’s time to explore the West coast further. The pictures below were taken along the N71 in the South of Ireland between Cork and Kenmare, we might have been on our way to The Ring of Kerry but the route there was at least as amazing as the destination!
Today I’m sharing again two foto’s my mom took on our trip, this is along the coast on the Ring of Kerry. Well worth a drive! The drive in county Kerry is about 180 KM’s long and takes you through different kinds of landscapes. We started out in the lovely small town of Kenmare and drove via the coast up towards Killarney and back through the Gap of Dunloe.
Today I’m focusing on the thought that we indeed do get sunny days over here in Ireland. Mainly because the sky looks grey, there is a storm going on with a lot of rain and wind and I even heard some rumors about possible local flooding. Sigh.
I intend to post some more pictures about the trip I took down there together with my mom but sadly my Macbook is experiencing some disciplinary issues. So for the moment I am sampling Photoshop’s online editing tool with some of the pictures I found stranded in my mailbox.
