The Sheep of Achill Island

The Sheep of Achill Island

The sheep on Achill Island do not fear cars driving past. They did however take exception to me walking closer to get a better photo and bolted a moment after I took this photo!

Canon 40D Ireland Kerry Nature Photography Photos Sigma 10-20 Slea Head

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?

Animals Bantry Canon 10-22 Canon 20D Cork Ireland Landscape Nature Photos Sky Sun

House on the hill

A house with a striking red door overlooks a field with sheep in one corner and a feeding trough in the foreground. This was shot near Bantry in West Cork a few months ago and I just love the vast rolling grassy slope of the ground.

Cork City Marathon is on Monday. It starts at 9am in Patrick’s Street. I’m going to try and get in there for that time. I’ll be up anyway since 6am so hopefully I’ll have some shots to share next week!

Animals Canon 20D Dingle Ireland Kerry Landscape Nature Photos Sigma 10-20 Slea Head

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!
