Sometimes they come out right,..depends on the light as there are so few settings on the phone camera,..as compared to the normal camera however i must work on the settings its something i have neglected.

Delighted you like water shots,..so do i,..relaxing scenes.

Short video for you,..Island hopping on Lough Ree,..nothing special about this just water scenes.

Wow, that looks like so much fun. I have always wanted a boat, but was never able to afford the time or money to buy it, use it, or keep it up. Love all the boat scenes and the water views. Looks like you are in the perfect spot to enjoy the boat and the waterways.Nothing makes a prettier picture than a harbor full of colorful boats.

When i came back to live in Ireland and decided on living in the Midlands i found living so close to the river and the lake i just had to get myself a small fishing boat,..i used to fish nearly every day but now i just enjoy exploring islands and relaxing,..i couldn't afford an expensive boat back then but luck had it i was awarded a lump sum from the Army and invested some of it in the boat you see,..its an Orkney 520 imported from England,..a sea going boat,..and so the name of it "Jelly Fish",..i never changed the name,..its a fast boat with a 40hp engine and a small reserve engine,..takes five people comfortably and easy to manage on my own.

How I wish people here in the states could be satisfied with a 40hp motor, now the limit on a tournament bass boat for two people is 250 hp.

People i visited in Indiana had a similar hp engine and i was mystified as to why they would need such a big engine,..i only use the 40hp to get 15 mile up the lake fast or to get home as quick but i use the small reserve engine trolling for trout or pike,..i catch and release as i find lake and river fish tasteless compared to sea fish.

Great memory shots, the dog looks very content.Appears to be saying that he helped. The only fish of any size I ever caught was a 17 lb carp out of a pond we used to own.

Wow nice sized Carp,..i never caught one but they are a very strong fish,..the dog shows some strange expressions when a fish is hauled in,..when the engine is switched off i have to have a lead on the dog as it thinks its time to go ashore and jumps ship lol.
