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:

Thanks for looking.
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.
Dingle lighthouse, above and below.
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 .

Thanks for looking. It would be really nice if you could take a look at my website for more photos of the Dingle Peninsula:
And if you like paintings, here are my paintings of the Dingle Peninsula:
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.
Many more photos of this area can be seen on my Photos of the Dingle Peninsula category on my website:
Thank you for visiting.
These were not gigantic waves, just ordinary everyday waves on the Atlantic Ocean, West Kerry, but I zoomed in close to them to capture the individual character of each one or group. Many were taken from the same spot, and the others were from very nearby, in the Ballinrannig area of Ballyferriter, near Dingle, in the South West of Ireland.

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.

Just a few more sunset shots from just outside my house – again!

THE BLASKET ISLANDS – TODAY’S VIEWS
The Blaskets, a group of Islands off the coast of the west end of the Dingle Peninsula, South West Ireland. Famous for their beauty and their history. On my website there are several photos of the Islands and on Great Blasket, the largest of the Islands, on which there was once a thriving community.

The ruin in the above photo is the schoolhouse from the movie Ryan’s Daughter. See my earlier post about this: https://helenebrennan.wordpress.com/2015/11/23/time-changes-everything-the-schoolhouse-from-the-ryans-daughter-movie-2/
