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

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 […]

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, […]

The Fields of Slea Head

The green fields on Slea Head in County Kerry are home to many sheep and photographers who shoot this place to death. The photographers, not the sheep. With cameras. While I was taking this photo another photographer walked down the slope just out of shot to shoot the beach at Cuminole! Winners of the free […]

Water rushes in

Sheep in a Kerry field

Sheep in a Kerry field Wooah, digging into the archives here. This was shot in September 2006 while on holiday in Dingle. It’s a field on Slea Head at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula. It’s hard to see in the web version but I love the brooding clouds in the large image!

Lonesome Donkey

Lonesome Donkey A donkey, alone in his field. There’s a horse in the background but he’s being fed. The donkey doesn’t get anything. Poor thing. Spotted on the road around Slea Head at the end of the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry. That’s the last of the donkey pictures. For now.

The sandy beach at Couminole

The sandy beach at Couminole I photographed the beach at Couminole on the Dingle Peninsula back in 2006 when there was a beach there. There was no sand to be seen during repeated visits there in September 2007. I had actually quite forgotten I had taken this so it was nice to see the lovely […]
