Down by the River


Well we finally have a bit of sunshine – for a change! It’s been quite a busy few weeks so it was just nice to have a walk down by the river in Coolaney, Co. Sligo with the camera this evening.


I usually have the dogs with me and neither of them are trained so they end up walking me – not a good idea to bring the camera as well!


I like the background that the light and the river gives the plants. I saw fish jumping earlier when I was there with the dogs, but typical when I went back with the camera there wasn’t a sign of a fish.


If I ever get my waterproof camera sorted out the next lot of shots might be taken from the river 😉


I’m told on Facebook that this is hogweed and can cause your skin to blister if the sap gets on to you – so don’t get too near it just in case.

  1. These are all beautiful ‘still life’ shots, Val. I love the soft, serene, diffused background lighting, too.. Even the hogweed looks lovely – thanks for the warning…I can admire them ‘safely’ thanks to your photo.
