Just a few photos from a cliff walk left of Clogher Beach (left when facing the sea), on the Dingle Peninsula in the South West of Ireland. I didn’t have my good camera with me, so these are taken with my phone camera mostly just snapped in a hurry. I really hope to go back to this place again soon and take my time with my photos.
There was a lovely shimmer on the water and the colour of the sea was so breathtaking! White foamy trails streamed around the coast.
The sea pinks are looking really splendid at this time of the year.
The path above looks easy going enough, but not all of it was like this. Some parts were very hazardous, and a little slip or trip up could result in a nasty fall down a rock face. It was a little scary and challenging for my rather mature knees and less than perfect balance! The path has been eroded by storms a number of times, falling into the sea, but another path would be created and it would be walkable again for a while.
The views are really beautiful. At the top of this photo you can see Sybil Head, The Three Sisters and Ballydavid Head. That’s Clogher Beach on the right. It was an amazing walk.
There was a lot of these tiny pink wild flowers, which I haven’t yet identified.
It was a round trip involving a road walk which led back to the beach. I didn’t take photos on the road trip.
There are many more images of the Clogher area on my website, paintings and photos.
I hope you enjoyed this little walk. Thanks so much for your visit.
The storms seem relentless this year. These shots are from Clogher Beach, on the Dingle Peninsula, South West Ireland, a favourite spot for rough sea fans.
With a powerful wind blowing from the sea, the biggest challenge was keeping the lens free of the salty sea spray. So many potentially lovely photos ruined by wet blobs on the lens, and the salty water certainly won’t do my camera or lens any good. On this occasion there was continual wet spray. In the above photo, I caught one of the frequent flurries of foam blobs that blew up from the crashing waves.
It was difficult to get any colour into these photos. I tried converting to black and white but in the end went back to the coloured pics, slightly strange though they may appear.
Moving around to the cliff at the right hand side of the beach, you can see the shape of the beach with it’s foamy frothy water (below). It was shortly before a very high tide.

At Clogher Beach, on the Dingle Peninsula, where dozens of people go for the turbulent water and big wave photos. Yesterday was not particularly rough, but the tide was high and the sun was low when I passed and decided to do a detour to check out the photo possibilities. I found the evening light had a lovely colour and there was an attractive watery haze in the distant atmosphere. Here are several photos of this view, with the island of Inis Tuaisceart (one of the Blasket Island group) in view. This island is commonly known as the Sleeping Giant, or locally as the Fear Marbh (Dead Man).

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.

We are getting the usual kind of showery weather here, and it’s a bit of a challenge to sneak a few photos between the showers while also avoiding getting myself and my camera wet. But here are a few attempts I made in the Ballyferriter area of the Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry.
More pictures of one of the wonders of the west of Ireland. These photos were taken on Cosán na nEighe, a coastal walk next to Clogher Beach, Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry. Loads more photos of this area on my website:
