Kilcatherine Point, Eyeries, Co. Cork

Kilcatherine point is on the north side of the Beara Peninsula, west cork.

This is simply a beautiful place, the Irish Landscape at its very best, I was lucky enough to get some time here at the start of September. These images are taken at the top of a hillside overlooking the Atlantic ocean.

I often feel that there is no place on earth as perfect as Ireland when the weather is good and no place as dramatic as when the winter months move across.

One very early Morning on the first of November, I was out walking our dog Molly along the coast road that links Reentrusk and Allihies, west cork. The Sun was just starting to rise in the distance so I took this images along the Atlantic coastline looking to the North.

These early morning coastline walks in the Autumn are wonderful after a cold a fresh night.

Rosskerrig, Ahakista is on the Sheepshead peninsular in county West Cork.

Its a wonderful location for an Irish holiday and perfect for landscape images of the coast line alone both sides of the Atlantic bay. It was a very warm but hazy afternoon around Easter time, the light from the sun was oddly very low even though it was still only around 3pm.

For these images I had the camera on a tripod and used a polarising filter.
