Photographer's Note

The beach at Inch, Dingle Peninsula, Ireland

The Dingle Peninsula is a long, narrow stretch of land pressing out into the Atlantic. It has a spine of rolling, low mountains and is incredibly scenic. It's also home of some of the most ancient structures in Europe, including Beehive huts, stone circles dating back to 1000BC and the Gallarus Oratory. Dingle has been inhabited for 6000 years.

The one exception to Dingle's narrowness is at Inch, where this long sweeping arc of sand juts into the bay of Dingle. The mountains in the background are on the Iveragh Peninsula, also known as the Ring of Kerry, many miles away by land.

Like many days in Ireland, this day was mostly grey, with light indirect through the glowing clouds. It provides more of a soft light, which is often true of Ireland views. It's not the best quality as it's from an older camera. I desaturated this a bit to provide an even tone to match the greys of the sky and the dark greens of the sea.
