I went on a trip to Ireland about half a year ago, and just felt like sharing some of the photos I took while there. Hope you enjoy. ^_^

These are from a farm visited during my first day there.

One of my sister's cats. Isn't she adorable? It took a while for them to get used to me. XD

Taken in Limerick, the city I stayed during my trip.

Kilarney, in County Kerry. The first two are from the bus ride there.

Since I seem to be limited to ten pictures per post, I'll leave it at that for now. There's plenty more if you want to see them, though.

Nice pics you have there.^^ I like those landscape pics like the second and eighth pics. They have amazing views, like something a professional painter would create. Also, I like the pics of the castle and that big church. You shot the church pic at a great angle. I don't really like how the sixth pic(the one of the bridge), seems to tilt though, but that's just me.^^;

Good pics though none-the-less.

i like the photos. I wish I could go to Ireland!...

Wow, Ireland is beautiful. I wanna gooo!!
Great pics, I love the picture of the cat. You're right, that cat is amazingly cute!!! ><

Thanks for all of your comments. Greatly appreciated. ^_^

Lol, yeah, I was mostly just randomly firing off shots that day. XD I used to live around there, and it had been a while since my last visit. I think I took some 20 pictures just around the area I was in. >_> Thank God for digital photography. ^_^;;

Here are a few more shots from my trip, of Kilarney National Park (one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen) and Ross Castle:

Kilarney National Park. The sunset that day had been staggeringly beautiful, though it didn't come out so well in the shots.

This is Ross Castle, which I actually found by accident during my incessant wandering about. >_>;;

I've got a few others, which I'll probably be able to post later.

Beautiful pictures, just another place I now have to visit before I kick the bucket ><

I actually laughed out loud when I read that

OH wow. Those are amazing =/ I'm really jealous :(
I love how old those buildings are.
There's nothing like that here =/
I hope I can travel one day.

i love the national park pics!

The photography is great. I really like it, a lot. Nice work.

04-10-2008, 02:38 PM
XD Those are some really nice pictures! I like the second one in the last set, I have a thing for landscape pictures and clowd pictures. Good work I hope to see some more.

Well, it's been over a week so I figured I should post again. XD Thanks again for all your comments. Greatly appreciated. ^_^

Almost all of these pictures were taken at a place called Muckross Farm, where they have fields lined with animals and houses decorated as they might have been a century ago. Felt very authentic; they even had people walking around doing work with old farm tools.

Some of the animals grazing in the beautiful fields.

Two of the decorated houses. The first is what a typical bedroom might have looked like, whereas the second is what would have been expected from an upper-class dining room.

This was a cat we found wandering about the park. It had apparently gotten lost and me and my sister had to help the poor thing find his home. XD

The place offered some wonderful landscapes.

This is Muckross House (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muckross_House). We were in something of a hurry, and so I wasn't able to go inside.

I've got about nine more shots, which I'll be able to share in the next installment. Until then, thanks again for your compliments. ^_^

I have a thing for landscape pictures and clowd pictures.

Me too! I absolutely adore the look of a wonderful landscape clashing seamlessly with a mesmerizing sea of clouds. It can be incredibly beautiful.

I want to go to Ireland! I bet that had to have been pretty cool.

Yep, it was a great trip and a lot of fun. I was mostly there to visit family, though, so I didn't get around as much as a normal tourist might. XD

And without further adieu, here are the remainder of my shots from Ireland. Thanks for all of your kind words. Hope you all enjoy.

Random picture of a bird, taken while I was waiting for a train transfer.

This is from the city of Cork. I didn't do much that day, but I loved the look of this building, probably the capitol or something.

Cliffs near Kilkee, which offer absolutely astounding views of the Atlantic ocean. We were able to do a little fishing off the cliffs, though I pretty much sucked at it. >_>;

This was taken at JFK International. One of my connecting flights got canceled, so I had to spend 32 hours straight in the airport. After I woke up I decided to take a few shots while it was still dark. Probably the best night pictures my flimsy HP Photosmart M525 can muster. XD

And that be my trip. Thanks again, hope you enjoyed them. ^_^

Well, these pics seem to be pretty random. o.o;

Anyway, my favorites were the 3rd and 6th pics. The scene in the third pic, especially the overall far-as-the-eye-can-see view looked pretty good and was taken at a great angle. All I have to say about the sixth pic is "Aaaaw! =3 " .

All in all, your pics aren't bad. They all seem a little fuzzy-looking or blurry and some of the angles seemed to be off some, but they were good none-the-less. Again, they were noticeably random pics, but sometimes you can find the most random things to be amazing. ^^;

Well, these pics seem to be pretty random. o.o;

Yeah, my last week there wasn't really all that notable (mostly just visited family, old friends and where I used to live), so most of my pictures were just sentimental stuff. And by that point my 256 MB card was running out of space, and I couldn't get the pictures to upload on my mom's computer over there. XD

They all seem a little fuzzy-looking or blurry and some of the angles seemed to be off some, but they were good none-the-less. Again, they were noticeably random pics, but sometimes you can find the most random things to be amazing. ^^;

Yup, randomness can win sometimes too. XD I think the photos are blurry mostly because of the camera I used; it's a basic $100 point and shoot I'd bought a few months prior. I'd love to get something like an professional SLR camera eventually, but I just don't have that kind of money to spend right now.

I'm glad you liked the pics, though. ^_^
