Frosty Morning at Mullins Mill, Kells, Co.Kilkenny : Nigel Borrington

The two videos below are of the restored waterwheel at Mullins mill on the kings river county Kilkenny.

The photograph was taken back in 2011 but the video only last week.

The morning the videos was cold with a frost and you can see the mist created from the water as it is raised up by the water wheel. it was great fun making these, the motion and sounds created a picture of past times and technology and added a true reminder of the original usage of the mill.

Today the mill is a local heritage and craft center.

I took this Image of a Damselfly while on a Walk along the Kings river , County Kilkenny.

This Wonderful looking Damselfly was just resting on a leaf as I walked past and stayed long enough for me to get some great images.

The Kings River (Irish: Abhainn Rí)

The Kings river is one county Kilkenny’s many rivers, for me personally it is one of the most picturesque.

It has its source in the Slieveardagh Hills in south County Tipperary, having many tributaries of its own of which there are three main. These tributaries are not named, one started as a spring in the townsland of Ballyphilip, the two remaining tributaries rise in the townsland of Gurteen.

The Abhainn Rí flows south-east from the hills and crosses into County Kilkenny. It is joined by the Munster River before passing through the town of Callan. It continues eastwards from Callan, past Kells and joins the River Nore west of Thomastown.

The following images are taken at the old bridge at Ennisnag and show just how green the Landscape of county Kilkenny becomes down by its rivers in July.

Damselfly

By : Sara Nummenpää

you’ve swept me away
in your rivers,
completely.

do you know you steal my breath?
I can’t help it, I surrender
to you, so
surround me, encompass me,
cover me with your skin,
your flesh and wings;

lead me, I know you can.
lead me,

for just a while, and
I’ll lead you,
follow you,

until you find
what you are looking for.

damselflies 2.

I am yours to break.

and if you ever want
to forget me for a while,
to lead me no longer –
that is okay,

for you’ve loved me once,

and that is enough.

The Changing faces of the Kings river

The Kings river has its source in the Slieveardagh Hills in South Tipperary and has many tributaries of its own.

It flows southeast from the hills and crosses into County Kilkenny. It is joined by the Munster River before passing through the town of Callan. It continues eastwards from Callan, past Kells and joins the River Nore west of Thomastown.

Having made a small photographic project of the river, the images below are taken over about a five year period. They are just some of the images I have captured, I feel they show how the passing seasons and the Irish weather effect this little river.

Kells Priory is located at Kells in county Kilkenny and is a great place to visit if you are in the county.

While most of America and Canada are dealing with snow storms and sub zero temperatures this winter , Ireland has been very mild with well over 40mm of rain during the Christmas period. I visited the Priory yesterday and most of the grounds are under water from flooding. The water however added a new feeling to the priory grounds and I took the following images to capture the atmosphere of an Irish winter here.
