Thanks to Dalkey Community Council
for again featuring my work on their front page.
This time it's a photo of Sorrento Terrace and Dalkey
Island taken from the path down to The Vico Bathing
Place. Sorrento Terrace is home to movie director
Neil Jordan and the pink house is owned by U2 guitarist
'The Edge'. They must enjoy watching the dolphins
playing in the bay there!
Just below this spot are the steps
from which I took the Dalkey Island dolphin snow
photo that featured in The Irish Times last November.
Having been asked by so many people,
I've had some other frames made up in different shapes
and sizes including the photo at the top of this page in
a wide frame. See them in The Bedroom Studio.

I went out early this morning to
get some photos in the fresh snow which had fallen
overnight. I met two other photographers in
Sorrento Park and we were taking photos of the snow
covered island when one spotted dolphins near The Vico
Bathing Place. I had spent much of the summer
looking for these dolphins and had presumed they
had moved away in the autumn, but there they were!
We abandoned what we were doing and relocated to The
Vico Bathing Place. It's amazing how few people
know where this is and how to get there. I had to
show the others where the entrance was. We were so
lucky - the dolphins played around us for over half an
hour. The morning sun came out at one point and
illuminated Dalkey Island with a beautiful light.
As if on cue, one of the dolphins jumped out of the
water and I got this perfect once in a lifetime shot!
