OCTOBER WALK ON MOUNT EAGLE

DSC_0112 mt brandon from mt eagle

It was a fairly short walk, a few weeks ago, on Mount Eagle, which is on the west end of the Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry, Ireland. I didn’t go to the top, but it was just a bit of much needed uphill exercise and an opportunity to take a few photos along the way. I have of course taken many photos on this route before, but in this climate the views are ever changing.

The winter colours are so lovely in the October sunshine.

Mount Brandon in the distance, above and below, so clear with no heavy cloud on top.

VENTRY

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.

BEACH FUN

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.
