HAZY EVENING SUNLIGHT

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).

I appreciate your visit. Do come again. I have a huge backlog of photos and half completed drafts which I hope to try to get published in the near future.

AUTUMN LIGHT, WICKLOW

These are photos from a walk in the forest in the Glen of Imaal, which is somewhat lesser known than the famous Glendalough, but also very lovely and less crowded. It was late afternoon, on a sunny day with cloud shadows and the light was warm in colour, becoming more so as the sun slid down in the sky.

Mount Brandon in the late mid-summer’s sun

 

DSCF0133-2

This photo was taken in the late evening sun on the longest day this year. It was a perfect evening with an almost clear sky.  It was great to enjoy the long hours of daylight to the last minutes of the setting sun. I’m a little late posting this – but better late than never!
