A FEW TRALEE PHOTOS

Tralee Bay and Blennerville Windmill

To live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world is indeed lucky. In this post I want to show you some more photos from near where I live.

I actually hang out in two places – mainly Tralee and Ventry, in County Kerry, South West Ireland. I have previously posted photos from both these places, and as I frequently take walks with my camera near my home, I have hundreds of photos that will just never get seen.

So, this is an attempt to show just a few of these photos, starting with Tralee. My favorite walk is by the Tralee Canal (see previous posts).

A Balmy Evening on the Coast of Tralee

I admit to neglecting my camera, paintbrushes and WordPress recently, having been busy on other things. So this evening I attempted to rectify this situation by taking a walk down by the Tralee Canal again, although I have a pile of photos of the area not yet published.

It was a beautiful evening and the sun was going down. I waited for the sky to redden up while down at the coast. A group of middle aged men stood leaning on gate posts, having a great old chinwag. It was a happy sound, as they laughed and bantered one another – one chastising another for ‘that dirty talk’ – their singsong accent revealing their Kerry identity. I reflected that they probably wouldn’t have enjoyed themselves any more over several pints in the pub. They too, waited for the sun to go down, and then dispersed, after commenting on the beautiful sky.

Tralee Ship Canal Photos

Tralee is the County Town of County Kerry, in the south-west of Ireland. The town is situated at the neck of the Dingle Peninsula, and is the largest town in the county. The Tralee Canal was built as a ship canal to bring trade to Tralee, around 1830. It is now no longer used for large boats, but remains a valued amenity, providing a scenic walk to the coast for local people. I frequently walk by the canal and have taken several photos of the same subject, but at different times and in different lighting conditions. Most of these photos of Tralee Canal are available as limited edition prints only. Others are available in a variety of sizes.
