A fabulous day in the Kerry Mountains

Saturday was cold and clear, so I decided to go to the Macgillycuddy Reeks to take some photos and see if I can prepare a few routes for my upcoming workshops. I walked up towards Caher slowly taking pictures here and there and checking the ground. I´ve made it almost to the top but decided to turn back, as I knew sunset would be around 5 pm. when I arrived back at the car Lough Accoose was  just covered with great evening light. all photos taken with tripod.

A Winter´s Day in Derrynane, South Kerry

Always an inspiration to walk in Derrynane´s Park next to the O´Connel House.

The frost has destroyed a few plants but worse is the elm disease, I gather some of the old elms need to be cut.

Lough Acoose, Glencar, County Kerry

Lough Acoose is situated between the MacGillycuddy Reeks and Glencar. I had a nice walk there about a week ago with Frank from Dublin. You can actually do a kind of loop walk to go to Carrauntuohill Mountain (1039mtrs) Irelands highest mountain and Beenkeragh (1010mtrs).
I turned some photos in to black&white and left the sunset photos in colour. Here is a link to a B&B and more information about the walks.

Thanks Frank for great company and petrol!
