West Cork, Episode 3

An afternoon spent exploring Sheep's Head turned into a photographic
exploration of some very stunning scenery.

The cottages of that locality have a distinctive gable end.
The sea is everywhere, bringing mists and sunshine in equal measure.

House on Skyline

Rock Pool Saturated

Walkers and cyclists find the area particularly inviting.
We cycled round Ireland for six weeks in 1976 and chose the
Beara Peninsula for our far out to sea experience.
Beara lies across Bantry Bay from Sheep's Head
and seems, in general, to get much more attention from writers and
I don't think I would enjoy the hills so much today, but since our travels
thirty years ago were not written up at the time, it might be a story
worth telling in the years to come.
