Two small boats tied up and out of the water on the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry.
Today is dull, there’s a glimpse of blue out, it’s cold, there’s a chilly wind blowing.
Blue sky and fluffy clouds in Kerry while on holiday. Great memories.
So that’s what happens to reality tv show judges when they retire. They go off to Dingle and work on a trawler!
In the background is an old burned out trawler that has been tied up to the quay in Dingle for at least the last 18 months. I have photos of it from last year too!
We stayed in The Randles Court Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry last February and one night I wandered out to take a few shots.
This was a long exposure shot, with the aperture closed down as much as possible to f/22.
Lovely hotel too!
The waves crash on to the beach at Couminole on Slea Head, Co. Kerry.
Standing where I was when I took this image was scary. Huge waves lifting up water to head height before crashing down mere feet in front of me.
Is that Skellig Michael in the background?
Kerry were still celebrating their win in the All Ireland when we stayed in Dingle a few weeks back and flags were flying everywhere!
Shadows from the broken clouds above play over the landscape on Slea Head in Co. Kerry. Every moment was a different photo until the rain eventually caught up with us!
Hard wind worn grass grows by the beach at Wine Strand in Co. Kerry. I think this is perfect in black and white.
The blue sky was amazing but the light and shadow of the grass stands out against the uniform background.
I shot my first sports stuff in ages yesterday. A few of us from Mallow Camera Club made it to the Cobh Ramblers game against Dundalk and had free reign to walk around the perimeter of the football pitch.
I was almost hit a few times by the ball, including one time near the goal when I was zooming in on the action, with the camera in burst mode. I spotted the ball heading my way in the frame and stepped to the side a lit second before the ball landed where I was standing. Phew. Got the pic too 🙂
More about the day’s shooting during the week!
Rain descended on us moments after I took this shot as it sped across the bay and over Slea Head from the south!
This was taken above Couminole Beach.
