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.
Dingle Bay, above, with the mountains of the Iveragh Peninsula, South Kerry, across the water. The peaks of Carauntoohil, Irelands highest mountain can be seen.
The Blasket Islands, above and below.
Views over the fields of Dunquin, in these last few pics.
On my website I have many more photos taken from this mountain, many from the top also. Please take a look, using this taglink:
Thanks so much for looking at my photos. Please come back.
Following on my earlier post ‘Symphony on sea atlantic movement‘ The following photos were taken the day after Storm Lorenzo last week. I stayed indoors on the day, following the general advice, and it was actually a bit of a non event in this area, not at all as bad as expected. When I went out the next day there was still a respectable amount of turbulence on the water, which I attempted to capture in my photos. I look for movement with pattern, colour and tonal contrasts.
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.
Thanks for viewing. If you have enjoyed my photos, check out Dingle Peninsula photos and more on my website:

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.

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 .
