Lazy Photography

The BirdsThis morning we woke up to snow. I was half tempted to stay in bed as I was awake half the night listening to the thunder-storm, the snow sliding off the roof and the dog shaking with fear!

Sheep in the snowI think the sheep in the photo above looks photoshopped! It’s not but it looks like I’ve just cut and pasted him there πŸ˜‰

Oh sheepAren’t these the coolest sheep? They are in Markree Castle and don’t seem to be one bit shy.

Markree CastleThe reason this blog post is called lazy photography is that every photo was taken with my phone from my car….the laziest photo’s I’ve ever taken, mainly because it was raining. If we still have snow tomorrow I might take some ‘proper’ photos.

  1. Beautiful shots. The sheep looks shopped because he has no shadow. Even in the shade, objects typically have something of a shadow. Nothing a little burning around the legs couldn’t take care of. πŸ˜‰

  2. I liked these photos, no matter how effortless! I like the black and white of the water and gulls, the castle, the light through the dark castle gate. Such a beautiful corner of the world in which you live! (The sheep does look photoshopped–funny little apparition.) Snow from thunderstorms is not so usual, at least in the U.S. where I am. I hope that you sleep more soundly tonight. ~ Lily

    1. Well be prepared for four seasons in one day Jessica! Although saying that October is usually fairly nice, it’s just luck really. I think all of Ireland is beautiful so I’m sure where ever you go you’ll have a wonderful time. I’m am biased in thinking Sligo is the best but that’s because I live here πŸ™‚

  3. We love the lazy photograpy! Especially as it features markree castle ..I stayed there with my mother about 20 years ago and we had a fantastic time. I used one of my own photos for our Christmas card that year..all grey and misty tree reflections on the water ..mine wasn’t a brill photo but full of memories of times gone ..thank you for adding to my memory pile today! Keep em coming are appreciated πŸ™‚ Ursula x Ps will share later on Irish Life my online mag. Sent from my iPad

  4. I love this blog! Just shows beauty all around,no major effort needed to find-for those who have eyes to see…
    What’s the problem with the sheep?! He wasn’t in a light to throw shadow-and they’re such blatantly curious animals they stand in front and just gaze.Same over at Windy Gap-they may look displaced in a photograph but are just making the point :’You’re on my territory!’.
