FOTO FINISH: WEATHER

I couldn’t miss this week’s entry for Foto Finish… weather! the Irish can’t stop talking about it (or complain about it)!!! I could have taken a photo every day this week and I could assure you that you would have seen ALL KINDS of weather… 

My inerpretation of weather: the tides
I took this photo last summer, just when I moved into the area. There is a Martello Tower at the edge of the island with a lake on one side and the shore at the other. The tide was out and it hadn’t rained for a few days (yes, it does happen in Ireland sometimes, giving plenty more to talk about), the soil dried up looking like this. You can see oyster shells attached to rocks and all the seagulls, herons, egrets, curlews, oystercatchers, etc. wondering around feeding on what the sea has left behind.
It’s really beautiful.

No podia deixar passar l’entrada de Foto Finsih aquesta setmana: el temps (meteorologic). Els irlnadesos no paren de parlar del temps (ode queixar-s’hi)! Podria haver fet fotos cada dia de la setmana i us asseguro que haurieu vist temps de tot…
La meva interpretacio del tema: la marea
Aquesta foto la vaig fer l’estiu passat tot just despres d’haver vingut a viure a aquesta area. Hi ha una torre Martello a un extrem de l’illa, esta tocant a la platja i a l’altre costat hi ha un llac que s’omple amb la marea. La marea estava a fora i feia dies que no havia plogut (tambe tenim dies sense pluja a Irlanda, costa de creure, oi?) i el terra havia quedat aixi. Es podien veure ostres i petxines incrustades a les roques i les gavines, Bernat Pescaires, i mes ocells que no se anomenar en catala (vaig interessar-me per l’ornitologia uncop aqui) van menjant tot el que el mar els ha deixat.
Es un lloc fantastic.

I wanted to show you this too… an oystershell embedded to a rock
Us vull ensenyar aixo tambe, la closca d’una ostra incrustada a la roca
