The white sands of Cuminole

The white sands of Cuminole

The white sands of Cuminole Strand glisten on a lovely June day in 2009. This photo almost makes me want to reach out and tilt it as my eyes are drawn to the curve of the land… Aperture ƒ/8 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 20mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/60s

Abandoned Interior

Abandoned Interior

The interior of a cottage at the picturesque Brandon Creek on Slea Head, County Kerry. Outside there’s a planning permission notice, dated August 2008 and written in Irish. I presume the owner is no longer in a hurry to develop his property. All he wanted to do was replace the roof and add an extension. […]

Quality Irish Meat

Quality Irish Meat

A SuperValu lorry delivers produce to their store in Dingle, Co Kerry a number of months ago. While the rest of the country basked in the first rays of a beautiful Summer we were lucky to get two nice days out of seven. Love the area though, and the staff of the Dingle Skellig Hotel […]

Endangered Species

Endangered Species

Not so long ago these metal edifices defined the skyline in Cork and other Irish cities. They’re all gone in Cork now, but there’s still one left in Killarney, County Kerry. I hear tourists are taking photos of them now.. Aperture ƒ/13 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 24mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/250s

CELTIC FIShER

The Celtic Fisher, out of Tralee, was docked in Dingle Harbour in early November.

Dolphin Ferry

If you want to see Fungie the Dingle Dolphin, you’ll have to queue up for the boat to bring you out into Dingle Bay! Aperture ƒ/3.5 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 18mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/1000s

Silver Lining over Couminole

Silver Lining over Couminole

No matter how bad the day, how crummy and wet the weather is, there’s always a silver lining. This day on the Slea Head the silver lining was the fact that our toddler slept the whole drive around, and of course this photo. This is the beach at Couminole on Slea Head in County Kerry. […]

Reflections of a fence

Reflections of a fence

That same fence again, this time against the setting sun and reflected in a pool of water from the recent rains. Loved taking this shot and others at the time, they turned out almost as good as I imagined they would! My sister-in-law’s husband Ed has published a short story and is using one of […]

A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry

A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry

This is my desktop background. I love it! After Inch Strand on the way to Dingle in County Kerry the road gets very narrow and winds through the hills before coming down to sea level again. The picture above should be a familiar scene to anyone who has travelled that road! The day we drove […]

Light and cloud on the Atlantic

Light and cloud on the Atlantic

Clouds over the Atlantic off Slea Head play with the light beams hitting the water. Aperture ƒ/11 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/250s

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney in the background. We walked around the town a few weeks back but I didn’t have time to get down to the Cathedral this time. Still impressive, even from this distance. I wonder if “Tim O’Brien & Sons Furniture Carpets” is online anywhere?

Slea Head Statues

Slea Head Statues

There’s a statue of Christ and associated figures on the cross at the top of Slea Head in County Kerry. I’m not sure who erected them but they’re a prominent part of the headland there. More photos: 1, 2, 3. Aperture ƒ/10 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/200s

Fencing out the Atlantic

A fence on the road on Slea Head in County Kerry. The waters of the Atlantic lie just beyond.

Tipping Over

Tipping Over

I thought I had posted this photo of waves crashing down at Couminole Beach before but no, I have posted several shots of waves at that exposed Atlantic beach but not this one! I rarely mention WordPress stuff here but if you haven’t upgraded your site to 2.8.4, read this post by Matt. Please upgrade, […]
