Wasn't sure which I liked, portrait or landscape here, so here's both of them.
Dingle Peninsula, Ireland.
Interior of Kilmainham Gaol (jail), Dublin, Ireland. I suggest Googling for more information. Our tour guide was a fountain of historical information, I highly recommend this tour.

A very misty and cold day at Cliffs of Moher. Did I say windy too? It was very windy.
One of my favorite places in Dingle.
The same beach at Dingle, from another angle.
The "new" section of Kilmainham Gaol.
Original view of previous image.
Interior view of Christchurch Cathedral. I love how the D700 performed here, at 3200 ISO, and captured the warm available light. This is a beautiful cathedral in the heart of Dublin.
Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin
A nice mix of sunlight through the stained glass windows, giving a blue cast, and the warm interior lighting.
The big pipes for the organ. I didn't get to hear it, but I bet it's amazing.
Another ncie mix of daylight and incandescent lighting.
Exterior shot of Christchurch Cathedral in Dublin, with the ruins of the original Church which was built in 1030 by the Vikings. For more history, see http://www.cccdub.ie/heritage/briefhistory.html and if you go to Dublin, I highly recommend visiting here. Just a few blocks south of the River Liffey/Merchants Quay. No, I do not work for Dublin tourism, but I do love walking through this historic city. :-D
Temple Bar, Dublin Ireland
The Temple Bar, for which this area is named. A fun area to walk around, hang out, have a drink or a meal, shop, or...yes even take photographs. :-D Have I mentioned how much better Guinness tastes in Ireland?
Most of the images I took here were, well...bad. It was raining, the wind was howling, I shouldn't have been standing on the muddy edge of the cliff but I was. This one was one of the better shots, but very grey and gloomy. While adjusting white balance, this became an accident, and I decided to run with it. I rather like the blue cast rather than the very uninteresting grey that it was. Didn't need a grey card for this days shooting.
A town called Roundstone, in Ireland, on the Connemara Peninsula. That's my mom down in the lower left corner.
A seagull on the Dingle Peninsula, quite comfortable with my close proximity. He did ask me for a Euro to pose for the camera. :-D
Just down the road from the seagull (I think he rents that space :-D ) is this wonderful little beach and this great view. Dingle peninsula, Ireland. Just out of the frame on the left are some spectacular and often photographed rocks, more so at high tide. The waves are beautiful. If you look at my other Ireland gallery, it is the banner photo on that page. I've been too lazy and too busy to change this gallery to show it here.
Where the River Liffey meets the Irish sea.
Wide angle view of a beach outside Dublin.
A ship leaving fresh water behind as it meets the Irish Sea.
A sunny spring day in Dublin brings out the Dubliners in force. A walk along the River Liffey.
The same sunny spring day in Dublin, along the Liffey.
A very nice looking wooden ship tied up in the Liffey.
Couldn't decide between black and white or color. I uploaded both.
