A COLLECTION OF KERRY RAINBOWS

DSC_1339

I love rainbows.  I mean I really love when that arc of vibrant colour appears in the sky after some dark dismal weather, and the sun breaks through the shower and creates this wonderful image.  I live in West Kerry, on the Dingle Peninsula in the South West of Ireland.  We have a lot of stormy wet weather, especially recently. Over the years I have accumulated a lot of rainbow phtotos, and although I have previously published some of them  in different contexts,  I just wanted to show some of my collection of rainbows here.

Most of the images will show a clearer and sharper version when you click on them

On Wine Strand above, with snow on Mount Brandon.  Wine strand was so called because according to local folklore, several casks of wine were washed up here after the wrecking of the Spanish Armada in 1588.

The rest of the photos below were taken from the towpath by the canal in Tralee.

      • Thanks for your reply Joyce. I still can’t get your site. It’s happened a few times recently with other followers, so I have no explanation. Hopefully it will sort itself out.
