Sunrise over Muckross Lake

Sunrise over Muckross Lake

An early morning drive to the Lakes of Killarney this morning resulted in an eventful trip for Blarney Photography Club today. Rain didn’t spoil the sunrise, but a trip afterwards to the Gap of Dunloe didn’t go so well with a literal storm blowing up between the hills.

The photo above is from Dinis Cottage if you’re interested. Lovely walk down there and so picturesque!

The Lispole Viaduct

The Lispole Viaduct

If you’ve been to Dingle you’ve probably passed through the village of Lispole. It’s on that long fairly straight road where the speed limit is 60km/h. There are lovely views from the top of the hill overlooking the village and this viaduct sits behind the petrol station at the bottom of the village.

I’d seen the viaduct many times over the years but (I think) never stopped to photograph it until 2 weeks ago. According to a nearby sign it was part of the Dingle – Tralee railway line which ran from 1891 to 1953. An important part of the long community so long ago.

Swing around away up high

Swing around away up high

The Star Flyer brings people 40m up before swinging them around. Exciting stuff, but I declined. Bumpers and Waltzers were enough for me. 馃檪

Ballycanneen Sunset

Ballycanneen Sunset

I was late getting to Dooneen Pier this particular evening so I pulled over and took photos from where I stopped. A couple of nice photos came from this evening. They’ll appear here over the next few months. 馃檪

HDR image was made in Affinity Photo. It did a much better job than Lightroom. I did import it back into Lightroom to touch up and keep it within my normal photography workflow.

B贸thar an Uisce

B贸thar an Uisce

B贸thar an Uisce, or River Lane, in Dingle is on a junction with Dykegate Street where my favourite caf茅 in the town sits. Thyme Out Caf茅 & Delicatessen (Google Maps) is in a lovely old building serving vegetarian and vegan food. Brenda makes an amazing breakfast burrito, and her delux baguette is delicious! Yes, of course I took photos. I’ll share them some day but if you’re in Dingle make sure to visit Thyme Out!

The Sweet Pea Cat

The Sweet Pea Cat

I’m 99% certain I took a photo of this cat a few years ago and published it here but I cannot find it. The original photo was shot as we walked past at night and the cat was asleep in the window, just above the painting on the wall so it’s memorable. If I find it, I’ll link it here!

Dingle, July 2021.

Edit in September 2021, his name is Angel! Kieren Frost took a wonderful photo of him too.
