Oh ***** the battery's flat

31st October 2010
This afternoon Patricia and I drove from Kiltimagh to Westport, on the way I stopped to photograph these hawthorn bushes.

"I'll only be a minute" I declared as I hopped out of the car.Patricia is just back from a holiday in Isreal and feeling the cold so I left the heater on in the car. Well the "minute" became 35 and when I sat back into the car I turned the key and declared "**** the battery's flat! After gathering our thoughts we made a few phone calls and our friend and neibhour Martin came to our rescue with jump leads, poor Martin came twice because we could not get the battery cover off his car and so he had to go and get another car!! Thanks to Martin we got on our way, by the time we got to Westport we had missed a fantastic sunset but we went up slaughar hill to photograph Croagh Patrick anyway. I tried various exposure and again turned a "minute" into thirty . Afraid to put the heat on poor Patricia was freezing in the car. I wanted to record the clouds moving and did various long exposures this one was for one minute.

I asked Trish to time two minutes for me on her phone promising this will be the last one. Trish got the phone, declared herself ready to start timing, I pressed the cable release but nothing happened. Oh **** the battery's flat I declared for the second time.... Trish smiled !
