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.
Thanks for looking.

Here are some more photos taken in the Troodos Mountains in Cyprus. This is a beautiful area with lush scented forests and picturesque villages. I have named some of the villages, but unfortunately, some are forgotten.

Omodos Village, a wine producing village at an altitude of 800 metres in the Troodos mountain range, in the beautiful area of ‘Krassohoria’, just 42 km from Lemesos town.

I don’t use a drone but when I travel by air I love to take photos. I know the quality will not be perfect through a window covered in scratches, glare and fingerprints, but if you can get over that and accept it as part of the fun of it, and even part of the art in it, then the images can be really worthwhile, I feel.
Some images I capture are just clouds and light, and some are images of the mountains, lakes and seas below. Sometimes the cityscapes can be really pretty, especially at night.
Unfortunately, I often don’t know over which country I’m passing, so I can’t label all my pics as accurately as I would like. There was a time when the pilot used to inform passengers periodically of the countries or mountain ranges below, but I haven’t experienced that for many years.
So here’s a selection of my skyscapes. If anyone can give me more accurate names of the places shown I would be delighted, thank you.

The photos above were over southern Europe Greece and Turkey. I think all the next ones were over Cyprus.

The Tombs of the Kings in Paphos, Cyprus, is a very famous UNESCO Work Heritage site. A must see for all visitors to the region. It dates back to about the 3rd century BC and it was a burial ground for the richest, most powerful Ptolemaics of the time. Apparently, no Kings were buried there, but it was given its name because of the impressiveness of the rock hewn tombs.
Excavations began there in 1977; tomb raiders had long since removed most of the artifacts. A few pieces remained, that were inaccessible to the raiders.
Individual niches or loculi are cut into the rock in many of the chambers
Some of the rock cut stairs have survived well, but many are not easy for old knees nowadays.
This is a well preserved tomb with lovely doric columns.
Above can be seen hole in the wall made by tomb raiders to gain access to an adjoining tomb.
Tourists building stone piles in the area. The whole place is littered with them – stone piles, that is!
Thanks for visiting.
