Dolphins in Killiney Bay on the Shortest Day of the Year

It was a stunning morning down at White Rock. I went down to get my annual photo of the sunrise, but instead was very taken with, what Twitter tells me, are a pod of three dolphins who are resident in the area. I’ve never been fortunate enough to see them there before, but apparently they are often seen on a calm day. They were in very playful form. A beautiful sight to watch.

Here are some of my photos:

Lastly here are a couple of photos of the sunrise that I set out to watch:

Hope you’re having a lovely Christmas week.

It was a beautiful weekend here in Dublin, cold and crisp. (All photos taken on iPhone 4.)

Hope you had a lovely weekend too,

Lovely, mild morning in Dublin. Quick photo I took on my iPhone on the way to work at Seapoint:
