6th of November – lighthouses


Art everyday month is starting to get rolling, I’m beginning to get back into my stride of more regular blogging. Have a look over on /daily if you’re curious…

I know why I haven’t blogged much at all in the last half year. I’m not going to list my excuses because I don’t think it’s really necessary. I think it might even be better to change the wording of my last sentence from excuses to reasons because I try very much not to be explaining myself or express an underlying expectation that I might not have met. I think many blogs are just like that they have uptimes and down times and might even just stop and/or are even radically deleted by whoever operates them/writes them. I’m still here or on /daily or /tunnel.

Now that the cold weather is returning I know I will be indoors and right here at my desk a lot more. I kind of hope so, too, for I am very much looking forward to doing exactly that to write, paint, craft. I miss writing and I miss sharing what I write and see, to me blogging is a bit like a window not to look out of, but to look in, let other people have a look.

Today I want to share with you a few of the lighthouse photos I have edited and posted on insta over the last two to three weeks. The phone app world has some very nice editing tools on offer and I’ve spent hours playing with filters, saturation, focus, brightness, contrast and blur on many, many of my new and older photographs. And I have done that with most of my lighthouse photographs, have a look and do tell me what you think in te comment section, please.

The above photos are both Hook Head Lighthouse at the southwestern tip of County Wexford.

Travelling north you will eventually come to Wicklow Head wit it’s three lighthouses.

And then north of that is the little lighthouse on the pier at the harbour entrance.

Continuing the travel northward you pass by Dalkey Island and it’s Martello Tower just south of Dun Laoghaire Harbour.

One of my favorite lighthouses that also featured in a previous post had some serious photo editing done for this next picture.

In the middle of Dublin Bay are these two pretties:

The next two photos are of the lighthouse on the northern point of Dublin Bay, Howth Head the first being the view of the lighthouse from the Dublin side of the bay.

You only really get the above view from a boat. The last photo is on the other, northern side of Howth Island and again it’s the lighthouse at the end of the habour pier.

That’s it! I’ve been busy playing with my new phone, can you tell?
Thank you for visiting and as always, it would be great if you could leave a comment to let me know you called in.

    What wonderful lighthouses. I love the dramatic irish sky… and seeing your lovely pics made me get all melancholic to see this beautiful country again. My favourites: the 2nd one from Hook Head and the lighthouse that looks like a prison-island. The more I see from instagramm, the more I fancy giving it a go… xo
