Images of the Burren - Ireland 2016










"Postscript" by Seamus Heaney

And some time make the time to drive out west
Into County Clare, along the Flaggy Shore,
In September or October, when the wind
And the light are working off each other
So that the ocean on one side is wild
With foam and glitter, and inland among stones
The surface of a slate-grey lake is lit
By the earthed lightning of a flock of swans,
Their feathers roughed and ruffling, white on white,
Their fully grown headstrong-looking heads
Tucked or cresting or busy underwater.
Useless to think you'll park and capture it
More thoroughly. You are neither here nor there,
A hurry through which known and strange things pass
As big soft buffetings come at the car sideways
And catch the heart off guard and blow it open.

Pocono Mountain Inn


Pocono Mountain Inn

Many years ago, the Pocono Mountain Inn in Cresco, Pennsylvania was owned by my wife's Aunt Marion and her husband. As a child, my wife Mary would visit the inn, seeing her grandfather who resided there. Due to circumstances too deep to go into, the inn and business were lost - and about twenty five years ago, the inn was torn down. Now the land the inn stood on has become Skywood Park. You can still find traces of the inn if you care to look. The images below display a certain sadness in the land.

An Irish Chicken

I shot this image at Ned O'Neills farm in Tralee Ireland. Such a fine looking chicken. A chicken who knows what she wants, and knows where she's going.
