It was a grey day on Ventry Beach, Dingle Peninsula, South West Ireland. I have to say I have taken hundreds of photos on this and other beaches in the area, and I have always said that every day is different, so no two photos are ever the same. However, on this grey day with calm water, I felt challenged to make this images look sufficiently different from those earlier shots.
My solution was to convert to black and white, so here they are. I hope you will like them.

I love rainbows. I mean I really love when that arc of vibrant colour appears in the sky after some dark dismal weather, and the sun breaks through the shower and creates this wonderful image. I live in West Kerry, on the Dingle Peninsula in the South West of Ireland. We have a lot of stormy wet weather, especially recently. Over the years I have accumulated a lot of rainbow phtotos, and although I have previously published some of them in different contexts, I just wanted to show some of my collection of rainbows here.
Most of the images will show a clearer and sharper version when you click on them
The above photos were all taken in the Emlagh East area, Ballyferriter.
Below are several images from Cuas, by Brandon Creek.
The cottage in the above photos has been undergoing renovation recently, and looks in a somewhat better shape now.

On Wine Strand above, with snow on Mount Brandon. Wine strand was so called because according to local folklore, several casks of wine were washed up here after the wrecking of the Spanish Armada in 1588.
The rest of the photos below were taken from the towpath by the canal in Tralee.

THE BLASKET ISLANDS – TODAY’S VIEWS
The Blaskets, a group of Islands off the coast of the west end of the Dingle Peninsula, South West Ireland. Famous for their beauty and their history. On my website there are several photos of the Islands and on Great Blasket, the largest of the Islands, on which there was once a thriving community. See: http://www.helene-brennan.com/c53-photographs-of-the-blasket-islands-
The ruin in the above photo is the schoolhouse from the movie Ryan’s Daughter. See my earlier post about this: https://helenebrennan.wordpress.com/2015/11/23/time-changes-everything-the-schoolhouse-from-the-ryans-daughter-movie-2/

Yes, I have taken many photos and painted pictures of sunsets, many of which are previously posted in my blog and also on my website: http://www.helene-brennan.com/tag/sunset. But it’s so very hard to resist, when you see from your window the red-golden tree tops in the garden, and you know this is a special one – again. These special sunsets don’t happen often, but they happen a number of times in the year.
It isn’t always convenient to be out taking photos at these ‘special’ times. Last night, for instance I had just returned from a strenuous row on the sea, and wanted nothing more than to sit and relax. I tried to ignore the reddening of the sky outside, but eventually I had to just run outside before the colours disappeared. As usual in these situations, I just grabbed the images, no time for the tripod or anything like that.
THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT MY BLOG

Lots more photos from the Dingle Peninsula, West Kerry, on my website:
Here are a few of my several local sunset pictures. As there are so many I have decided to publish just a few at a time.
Yes there are so many benefits that I enjoy and appreciate about living on the wonderful Dingle Peninsula. I love the helpful friendly people, country roads, amazing beaches, glorious sunsets, magnificent walks, clean air, space, big garden, little shops and big ones……………..
My only complaint is my lack of decent Broadband. It would be nice to be able to view more blogs and like them etc., but some days it’s just too slow to view others’ blogs, especially those with image content.
But thankfully, today I have managed do do this post and upload a few photos, I hope you will enjoy them.
