Despite the very steep walk to the top, the view from Patrick's Hill makes it well worth the effort.
St. Patrick's Hill is where I took my first photograph using a DSLR camera and unfortunately my visit to Cork was a disaster because of the weather. The rain was constant and as a result I discovered that my Sigma camera was not in any way weather resistant.
This visit I used a much better camera and the weather was excellent [in between showers].
THE PHOTO DIARY IS NOT LIMITED TO CORK AS I ONLY VISIT THE CITY ONCE EVERY YEAR AND 2020 MAY BE AN EXCEPTION. I AM BASED IN DUBLIN BUT DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS I VISIT BELFAST, LIMERICK, GALWAY, KILKENNY AND WATERFORD AND USUALLY DEVOTE A WEEK TO PHOTOGRAPHING EACH OF THE CITIES IN QUESTION
