Dingle, Ireland

What a busy tour it was last week with Peter Cox, John Barclay and Dan Sniffin. Internet was spotty and we often arrived back in our rooms with little time to process or post, so I hope to catch up over the next couple days. Peter arranged a fantastic tour of Southern Ireland or as he called it "Wild Ireland." Dingle was our first town stop. After checking in we were cut loose for a little personal shooting time around town. Dingle harbor was quaint and calm.
It was a magnificent day! The town was filled with colorful homes, doors, windows, and gates reflecting the colors of the land and sea.

After dinner we headed out to Slea Head for an evening shoot with sundown at 10:00pm. 
The hike up the hill and over a stone wall through a well fertilized sheep meadow was quite interesting. I slowly made my way up the hill in time to catch a soft sunset. The guys got there before me and I loved the silhouettes of them I saw as I crested the hill. Today we finally arrived in Shannon around 6:00pm. I picked up my rental car for the next ten days I will be touring around Ireland.

This morning as we were checking out of the hotel I had time to browse through books in the hotel's library. One of them was an Irish photo book accompanied by Irish Blessings. I loved the connection and decided to add an Irish wish to each of my blogs from Ireland.

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.

Good night from Ireland!
