Dark Slea Head, Co. Kerry

Dark Slea Head, Co. Kerry
Slea Head is by far the most iconic of Dingle locations. On the very fringes of our island, it's an incredibly rugged and wild place. Even the roads have difficulty here - a section of the nearby Slea Head drive slipped into the sea some years ago. The new section is a little further inland now! This image was made shortly after sunset on a stormy December day. The clouds, which had been stubbornly persistent on the horizon, cleared for a few seconds to give a glimpse of the glorious colours behind them, before closing again just as quickly. From left to right, the islands visible are, Inishvickallaun, Inishnabro and the Great Blasket.
