SURFING ON INCH BEACH

These photos were taken while walking on Inch beach, Dingle Peninsula. Inch is one of the most magnificent beaches in the area, boasting several miles of sandy beach with a backdrop of the Iveragh Peninsula and Carrauntoohill Mountain (Ireland’s Highest). It’s becoming more and more popular, especially with surfing enthusiasts . Here are a few photos taken of the surfers in the waves. They were not experts, but triers.

CROAGH PATRICK – For St. Patrick’s Day

croagh patrick2 copy

This is my pastel picture of Croagh Patrick, locally known as The Reek. This was a December view, as the sun set early, and cast a red light over the mountain.

It’s an important landmark that dominates the landscape around the Westport area in County Mayo, in the Republic of Ireland.

According to legend, St. Patrick fasted for 40 days on the summit of this mountain, where there is now a chapel built. Every year, about a million people climb this mountain, and 25,000 of them climb on Reek Sunday, (last Sunday in July) many barefoot, performing various rituals.

I climbed it once, not for religious reasons, but it’s a challenging walk, and really worth the effort, as the view from the top over Clew Bay is amazing.

STORMY ATLANTIC 0CEAN

dsc_7514-

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.

A FEW SHOTS BETWEEN THE SHOWERS

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.
