Beautiful Demoiselle- type of damselfly
A striking metallic damselfly with vibrant iridescent colouration that spends most of its life underwater as a larva, to emerge for a few short weeks as a wonderful flying adult with fluttering, butterfly-like wings. The wing span is around 6cm, and four wings which it holds in a closed position when at rest. Male: metallic blue body with dark wings.
Female: metallic green-bronze body with translucent pale brown wings Sometimes the American species such as the Ebony Jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata), also known as the Black-winged Damselfly, but such species do not occur in Europe and have never been known to cross the Atlantic.
Wonderful work of nature and amazing to see them flying, but so difficult to capture a flying image.

What fascinated me about this lady was her determination with her 'phone to keep walking irrespective of other pedestrians, who parted to let her through.

MV Plassy, Inis Oirr
On the night of March 8 1960, whilst transporting various goods including whiskey and yarn, the MV Plassy was struck by gales on its voyage from Kerry to Galway. The crew of 11 men, led by captain Thomas Wilson, from Artane, Dublin, came to difficulty when the Plassy hit Finnis Rock at 10 past 5 in the morning.
The crew notified Inis Oirr’s inhabitants by setting off a flare, which began a successful rescue mission that saved all members on board. At the tail end of a later storm, the Plassy was lifted bodily from the position she was in, and shoved up beyond the high tide where it has rested ever since.
The site is featured in the opening credits of the television series Father Ted.
A cityscape with slender skyscrapers inspired by Le Corbusier, or maybe just an old circuit board with heat sink and transformer and a macro lens.
A bit of playing around with graduated filters in Nik Color Efex to add the ominous sky.
Dun Laoghaire - National Yacht Club
I love this one of the National Yacht Club in my home town of Dun Laoghaire in South Dublin, Ireland. I was a member there for many years and had many great sailing moments. In fact my wedding reception was held there way back in March 1979. Great days and great characters.
