Light fantastic

Poi, on fire and with LED lights inside.
Flail them around (precision and skill required so as not to burn oneself) and make pretty pictures with slow shutter speeds.




Kudos Josh, Ant and Kate for braving the flame.

Ireland's west coast

Our first night, camping by the roadside because everywhere was full and we had nowhere else to go.
The view from our second campsite, much more civilised.
An old church and graveyard overlooking a beautiful clear blue bay.
