SPECTACULAR SUNSET, DINGLE PENINSULA.

DSC_1683

Last night, I happened to suddenly look up from my task on the computer and saw a spectacularly red sky. Naturally, I grabbed my camera and ran out to capture some of  this amazing event. After hurriedly capturing about 20 images – or so I thought – I discovered to my great annoyance and disappointment that I had forgotten to return the memory card to the camera, and not one image had been recorded. So, I raced back to get the card and out again to catch something before this marvellous phenomenon disappeared altogether. Of course I missed the best of it, but in spite of my rush I managed to get several images that give some flavour of the brilliance of the colour of the sky.

The location is Ballyferriter, DIngle Peninsula, County Kerry, Ireland. The rocky ridge of Sybil Head (Ceann Sibéal) is visible on the skyline.

No edits were made to the colours, just minor changes using levels.

One very showery evening with sunny spells – perfect for rainbows – at Cuas, Ballydavid, on the Dingle Peninsula. The warm evening light escaping from the dark clouds enhances the brilliance of the montbretias at the roadside.

EVENING WALK ON BALLYHEIGUE BEACH

You may notice that just I love the West of Ireland Sunsets. This is Ballyheigue Beach, my current regular walking spot, on which I have taken hundreds of photos, but each one is different. That is the wonderful thing about this climate; it offers something new every day.

I am still struggling with a frustratingly slow Internet connection speed, so my posts are now infrequent, but I expect things will improve in a few months time.

Thanks a million to you bloggers who have liked my posts and apologies that I have not been able to access many blogs to view and like them. It’s taken at least half an hour to get this far with creating this post. In order to avoid wasting so much time I go and wash up, make a cup of tea or play my flute while waiting for pages to load!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all bloggers and all others who view this. Thanks you for taking the time to view my post. May all good things flow to you this coming year – and always!

BALLYHEIGUE

Hello again fellow bloggers. Sorry I have been missing for a while. Very busy with moving house and a few other things.

Well, I have NOT drawn the short straw with my current temporary accommodation, where I am enjoying the lovely resort of Ballyheigue by the sea, with it’s georgeous beach on the Atlantic coastline.

I am very lucky to be living here, though there is one drawback – my Internet connection is slow to standing still, making  it more difficult and time-consuming to make contributions to WordPress. Often, I have been unable to access the site at all.

In the meantime I have been finding Twitter more accessible and I would love you to follow me on that.

The above photo is one of many I have taken on Ballyheigue Beach. A West of Ireland sunset is always a delight.
