Quality Irish Meat

A SuperValu lorry delivers produce to their store in Dingle, Co Kerry a number of months ago. While the rest of the country basked in the first rays of a beautiful Summer we were lucky to get two nice days out of seven.

Love the area though, and the staff of the Dingle Skellig Hotel took great care of us!

A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry

A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry

This is my desktop background. I love it! After Inch Strand on the way to Dingle in County Kerry the road gets very narrow and winds through the hills before coming down to sea level again. The picture above should be a familiar scene to anyone who has travelled that road!

The day we drove down to Dingle was a stormy one but the sun suddenly broke through the clouds and I had to pull over and get half a dozen shots of the beautiful golden light, the countryside and the rainbow. Stunning, even if I do say so myself!

Since I had one request for print prices, I uploaded this to Red Bubble. Check out A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry over there. Lots of print options.

The Fields of Slea Head

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 hotel rooms tomorrow. There were only 5 entrants. Can’t believe it’s so hard to give away something free! I wonder if the hotel will actually make any bookings out of this?

Diverging Lines near Allihies

Diverging Lines at Allihies

I love lines in images so I had to take this shot. It was taken at the same spot as this Allihies photo. What a beautiful day that was!

The rolling hills of the Irish countryside

The rolling hills of the Irish countryside

People come from far and wide to see the beautiful Irish countryside and it’s no wonder. There’s such a wide range of different scenery that you could spend many a day discovering new beauty spots.

This was shot near Dunmanway in West Cork. If you look very carefully you can see the wind power generators on the horizon but what attracted me to the scene was the gently rolling hills and changing light. Really beautiful part of the country.
