I thought twice about posting today, in part due to time and also wanting a change of material.
Yesterday I rued not having my camera and a nice prime lens to capture the fresh beads of rain lined up in a row on the park bench. All I had was the camera on my phone.
In the evening I did take out the real camera and attached a single zoom lens to take images of The Hound flying around the park. The park was busy with training sessions and I couldn’t let him off the lead, so I headed for the quarry. Here two things caught my eye, already ripe blackberries and a group of youths chilling in the falling light. Right camera, wrong lens.
Then the more I thought about it, the more it seemed to make a nice gentle post, showing what a perfect day there was to be enjoyed. Sure the pictures are nothing special, but they do tell a story.
Rain came in the night to leave the air and plants refreshed and dripping with goodness – this summer has been so good here in Cork, Ireland that a bit of rain made a nice refreshing change (can’t believe I am saying this). So what a great fresh morning:
With the drips still hanging, the sun emerged to provide warmth and a sparkle to the day:
The combination of rain and sun is perfect for nature the benevolent:
At the end of the day we can reflect and simply share in the joys of life.
For those interested, the floodlights seen are those by Cork Constitution’s rugby ground.
