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 sandy beach!

Trivia – a well known member of Mallow Camera Club who shall remain nameless was caught by the tide and had to remain sitting on the rocks for several hours in wet, foggy and rough conditions until the tide went out again.

    Trostan – when I was posting this I was thinking of the comments you left on my other photos of the area. I’ll try to dig up a few more. I’m sure there are a couple more! ­čÖé

    I’ve been stupid enough to swim at Couminole in poor weather. Glad I’m still here – it looks perfect but the sea there is strange and unforgiving.

    Great angle you found there – the curve of the land looks excellent against the two types of sea.

    Seen in my contacts’ photos. (?)

    One of my favourite places in Ireland, this is a great capture. You reminded me of how this area can change from hour to hour, day to day. Sometimes sunny, sometimes misty, but always the danger of the sea is so close by.

    Thanks !

    This is my favorite place in the world. I have dreams about it. I visited it this summer in July, and I’m so glad you’ve taken this shot, though the day I was there it was very misty. I’m purchasing a print first chance I get
