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!

Conor Pass Hills and Clouds

This image broke my heart. I spent a long time trying to get the darkened sky layer and the brightened ground layer to merge nicely but I’m still not happy with it.

This small web version looks almost ok but I can still see the offending bits that are wrong.

Sunshine on the Conor Pass

This will probably be the final photo from that September 2006 visit to the Conor Pass. It’s taken earlier than some of the others but I’m a sucker for leading lines so it had to go in!
I love the reflection in the water on the valley floor, and the shadows of the clouds.

Must make a trip back there this summer!

Canon 20D Dingle Fog Ireland Kerry Photos Sigma 10-20 Vehicles

I can hardly see myself

As I said previously, thick fog was rolling across the Conor Pass. It was frightening how fast it moved and the light and scene changed utterly.

Here’s it’s obscuring the road down the Pass, making the too-narrow road even more treacherous. I think by the time we left, even this stretch of road and the car park was covered in a thick white fog.

Don’t forget! If you’re around Cork on March 9th, head to the Lough for 3pm. I’m planning a photowalk around The Lough and all are welcome!

Fog rolls over the hill

I count my blessings that we had sunlight this day at the Conor Pass. If we had arrived 10 minutes later all I would have seen was a white wall of fog.

Rusty old fence at the Conor Pass

A rusty old fence is all that protects you from a nasty fall down a fairly steep hill down to the valley floor at the Conor Pass.

Donkey eyes staring at me

The donkey knows everything. He stands in his field every day contemplating life.

This is the same donkey I posted before in Baile na nGall, Co. Kerry. We passed that way last September and I didn’t see him so if you see a wandering donkey, tell him I said hi!

Holiday Caravan

A holiday caravan near a beach on the Dingle Peninsula.

This caravan has been in the same spot for at least the last 2 years, and probably longer. I wanted to shoot it for quite a while but it wasn’t until I converted this shot to b/w that I was happy with it.

Cu Na Mara

A bright red trawler pictured in Dingle Harbour last September.

The name of the vessel, “Cu Na Mara”, literally means "Hound of the Seas"!

Bigeoino says I made it to the front of “Cork Places”. Does anyone know what that is? Is it a magazine? I’m going to ask in Easons later today.

You’re a star

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!
