Reenroe Beach , Ballinskelligs, in Winter Light

View from western end of Reenroe Beach towards Waterville
Don´t be afraid of the cold wintery days right now, as long as it is reasonably dry you can still go out with your camera and capture the blueish and pink colours in the sky towards sunset in the afternoon.
Find those clouds, they make a picture much more interesting than just blue sky, and maybe another interesting subject like the water spray of the waves in the next picture.
I had not brought a tripod with me for this walk, so to steady your camera, especially if you have a heavy lens attached, make do with whatever you can rest the weight on, even your walking partner´s shoulder...

By the way, I read about some place names along the Skellig Coast again the other day in Michael Kirby´s books and Reenroe which is obviously the English version of the Irish name Rinn Rua, means the Red Riff, I suppose, that is the place from where I took the first Photograph in this article.
