Yesterday here in Ireland was very wet, I still had to use my Camera.

So I sheltered under the cover of the Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre, and took these images of the rain running of the roof and hitting the ground. The rain flowed freely from the lowest parts of the roof and down over the bolts that hold it together.

The rain was so heavy that the effects I feel I captured, show just how chaotic the water looks as it splashed of the paving stones.

The Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre is Kilkenny’s outdoor auditorium and it is used many times during the year for outdoor performances. Located beneath Ballykeeffe Woods and Nature Reserve, I have visited this area many times to walk our dog and get some exercise.

The Amphitheatre was build in the remains of an old slate quarry, for a longtime the performances were held in the open air but very recently it boasts a state of the art canopy which fits within the worked-out quarry.

The acoustics and setting are designed to provide for a great outdoor theatre and music performance.

When the new canopy first appeared, I took the following images.
