Here is Ventry Beach, one of my several local beaches.
Some of these photos were taken in the summer, and some in September. I find it hard to keep on top of publishing my recent pics.
Ventry Beach is a few miles from Dingle town, on the Dingle Peninsula, in the South West of Ireland. I have many more photos of the Dingle Peninsula on my website:

Following on my earlier post ‘Symphony on sea atlantic movement‘ The following photos were taken the day after Storm Lorenzo last week. I stayed indoors on the day, following the general advice, and it was actually a bit of a non event in this area, not at all as bad as expected. When I went out the next day there was still a respectable amount of turbulence on the water, which I attempted to capture in my photos. I look for movement with pattern, colour and tonal contrasts.
Stone piles, sand castles and other beach creations.
Often while beach walking, I come across the remnants of a day’s fun on the beach. The children (or adults, in some cases) have gone home, leaving their creations for the tide and the wind. I enjoy imagining the fun that was had in these acts of creativity.
Thanks for viewing. If you have enjoyed my photos, check out Dingle Peninsula photos and more on my website:

The following photos were taken on a recent trip to the Blasket Islands. Here, I am showing the shots taken when leaving Dingle Harbour before reaching the islands. Island photos to follow later.
The wash from the boat made interesting patterns in the morning light. The town of Dingle sits on the shoreline.
The above small tower is known as Hussey’s Folly. Built in the late 1840s during the years of the famine, for the purpose of providing famine relief employment.

The cliffs around this coast have beautiful and colourful rock formations.
The tower above is Eask Tower, pointing the way into Dingle Harbour, the building of which also provided famine relief employment in the 1840s .

These photos were taken while walking on Inch beach, Dingle Peninsula. Inch is one of the most magnificent beaches in the area, boasting several miles of sandy beach with a backdrop of the Iveragh Peninsula and Carrauntoohill Mountain (Ireland’s Highest). It’s becoming more and more popular, especially with surfing enthusiasts . Here are a few photos taken of the surfers in the waves. They were not experts, but triers.
Thanks for looking.
