The Kerry mountain are thankfully not to far from Ballinskelligs. Even if you decide late in the day to go for a stroll you still manage to get somewhere. In this insance I went to Bealach Oisin, left the car and went for a walk up to Colly via Colly East. Once you reach Colly you get fantastic fews towards the Macgillycuddy Reeks on one side and Dromid valley, the sea, including the Skelligs the other way. If you are lucky you see one of the Kerry eagle from close distance. The walking is rather easy and not to steep. I carried my big tripod and camera gear up the hills as usually.
On my way back I discovered this rock in the shape of a human with a head and breasts and was kind of confused by its beauty and wondered if it was done by nature or by humans ages ago?
I used the 40,50 and 70-200mm lens and a polarizer filter.
