Sunset on Valentia Island

It was another fine day in south Kerry and I set out to capture the sunset on Valentia Island. As the days are getting longer the sun moves further west to northwest so that an evening in Portmagee or Valentia will get the last sunrays.
I really like taking pictures either early or late in the day, colours are more interesting, I think, and shadows and textures give a more graphic touch to my subjects.
You can see the cliffs on the north side of Valentia Island and a Standing Stone at St.Brendan´s Well. On my way back from Valentia Island I took a picture of Portmagee Harbour and Pier.
