Here are some more photos taken one evening recently on one of my local beaches, Béal Bán (White Mount). I have shown many pics from there in previous posts, and as I always say, each day it looks different, as the light changes so much. I have to admit that I was feeling a little challenged to get some images that looked sufficiently different from previous efforts, but I think I succeeded; I hope you will agree.

It’s wonderful to have the long days. These captures were taken between 8.00 pm and 9.00 pm. It’s so nice to be able to walk on the beaches in the sunny evenings – if the sun shines, of course.

I zoomed across the bay to get close ups of the mountains. Below you can see Mount Brandon and the village of Ballydavid and it’s small beach and harbour.

There is a rocky area at the end of this lovely sandy beach. The low tide exposed more rocks than you might sometimes see.

As the tide was very low, the sand had these wavy, groovy patterns, which is often fodder for photographic images.

I was delighted to come across this sand castle, evidence of much fun and imagination by some child or children on the beach earlier.

I appreciate your visit. It would also be so nice if you would check out my Dingle Peninsula photos on my website. Thank you so much.


  1. Every time I come to your site and visit your world through your photos, I really feel refreshed, and glad there is such a place on earth. And you are a wonderful photographer with a sensitive eye. Thank you for your work.

    • Thanks so much Joe. I hope you do manage to make it down here this year. It surely beats all that rigmaroll of foreign travel at the moment. I don’t know why anyone would want to go abroad just for a holiday at the moment. There are so many lovely places in Ireland ….well I suppose there is that unreliability of sunshine! But then – why fry at 30 – 40+ degrees in the summer?


  2. What glorious reflections – fantastic, Helene. I have just noticed that most of your shots have the same palette of colors – blue, sand and some green. Everything here has a green or yellow hue.

    • Thank so much Kerry. Yes colours are very much relating to place, but also seasons. Winter colours here often have a lot of brown, orange and beige hues in the landscape, also unfortunately we get swathes of black patches, from the practice of burning the gorse on the hills.
