A storm brewing at Allihies Beach

Storm clouds gathered over West Cork on the day I took this shot at Allihies Beach. A very different shot to some of the previous shots of this area! It was freezing this day, wind howled and I was wrapped up in a big jacket against the elements. Gives me the shivers just looking atRead More »
