Valentia Island, County Kerry, Seascape Photography

Her are some photos from this part of our "wonderful world" as Louis Armstronng and Robert Wyatt used to sing, and the reason why I missed the first hour of "The Blue of the Night" on Lyric FM . But I´ll be there again Thursday night with the Camera Club.

This is a final selection of photos that I took during my June workshop in the last 5 days with my small pocket camera  Lumix lx3.
As you can see, we came around a bit and had a great week in the wilderness . There are a lot of places like Waterville Lake and Puffin Island where I did not take any photos because of teaching and explaining camera stuff. I enjoyed the week and hope everybody else did too.

June Workshop part two

Here is a selection of photos I took yesterday and today during my workshop. Yesterday was Skellig Day, today we went to the Glen, Ballinskelligs and later to the mountain and lakes behind Waterville.
A very enjoyable day with plenty of fresh air, a bit walking up the hills and a nice meal in the evening in Waterville.

June Workshop Valentia Island

Here are some photos from my current workshop. We spend the first couple hours on Sunday near and in the slate grotto on Valentia Island and had a great afternoon session near the sea. Monday was sunny and just perfect for a walk around Bray Head. You may notice that I took some photos of a rock from different angles, and I still could´n´t decide which I like most. It is usually a good idea to do have a look from both sides anyway and observe the light and the shapes of the scenery. All photos were taken with tripod and polarizer filter.
Our third day brought  us out to Skellig Michael. Photos follow tomorrow.
