Whale watching Ireland 22rd June 2015

The humpback whale HBIRL#36 was seen the days before around Reen and Clonakilty Bay.

I wanted to see and if possible take photos of this species of whale as I only had distance encounters.

With Colin Barnes from Cork Whale Watch we got to see this young fellow very close.

Night at the Lough in Cork

Went out for some shots around the Lough in Cork.

Following the track around which was lit by street lamps and the all around light from the street and the houses.

A nearly cloudless sky and some stars on top of this.
