STORMY ATLANTIC 0CEAN

dsc_7514-

These photos were taken on Clogher Beach, on the west end of the beautiful Dingle Peninsula. This is our most popular spot in West Kerry for capturing big bold crashing atlantic waves. Yesterday I took a trip there and took several photos, as one does. How grateful I am that we no longer have to use film that one has to use sparingly for fear of waste and cost. So here are a few of those photos.

The island in some of these photos is Inis Tuaisceart, also known as The Sleeping Giant, or The Dead Man (An Fear Marbh). It is one of the group of Islands known as the Blasket Islands.

ATLANTIC SURF – NEW PAINTING

A new one, oil on canvas 31 x 23.5 inches

The place of inspiration, (though not much of the place may be obvious from this painting), is near Clogher Beach, viewed across the beach inlet from the walk known as Cosán na nEighe, towards Cuas na nEighe. Several of my recent paintings have been inspired by this often turbulent scene, with the very wild and stormy Atlantic Ocean and the rocky coastline at this spot.
