Knockreagh (An Cnoc Riabhach) is an outlier of the Caha Mountains on the Beara Peninsula which border Cork and Kerry, on the Kerry side. This view is from the summit looking west over the Kenmare River. The Cummeengeera horseshoe is visibe to the left of centre and the prominent double peak on the horizon is Lackabane (Leaca Bhán).
This is an iconic location, the view down the slip road to the harbour at Dunquin (Dún Chaoin), at the tip of the Dingle peninsula. From here you can catch the boat to the Blasket Islands.
Made on a stormy afternoon using a long exposure, the waves have turned to mist, swirling around the rocks just offshore.
Clogher is the place to be in a westerly storm. It's a fairly narrow bay and the wind and waves coming through it are always amplified. Never more so than on this stormy afternoon in January 2014. The wind was so fierce that it was a challenge to stand, let alone make photographs and the spray was constant.
Inis Tuaisceart, the Sleeping Giant, is visible on the horizon just past the breaking wave.
Puffins are difficult birds to photograph in flight. They are small and fast, a tough combination. After several attempts, I made a few images I was happy with, and this is the best of those. The puffin is coming in to land, with the waves crashing on the rocks in the background.
Ladies' View is one of the iconic viewpoints in the Killarney area. Named for Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, who were apparently much taken by the spot during her visit to the area.
I've always been taken by this tree, which is largely overlooked by the tourists who visit this place in droves during the summer months. I think it sets the view off very nicely, and this image made under starry skies gives the place an otherworldly feel. The lights of Killarney are visible in the bottom left of the frame between Torc Mountain on the right and the Eagle's Nest on the left.
This view of Skellig from an aircraft overhead reveals the entire island like a map. The eastern side is on the left. The boat landing can be made out as a pale area just above the eastern point, and you can follow the whole path from there to the monastery on the left peak.
