Misty morning in the Galtees

The Galtee Mountains are Ireland’s highest inland mountain range, stretching across parts of counties Tipperary and Limerick. It was several months ago that I had spotted a tiny bridge, hidden in a dip close to Mitchelstown. You get roughly a 2 second glimpse of it as you’re driving around a bend. The location is often shrouded in fog, and you can’t see anything. However, one morning last week,  driving down the R513 from Limerick everything came together, and I stopped to take some snaps. Shot handheld with the X-T1 and the 56mm.

Visiting the Dingle Peninsula

Dingle is the northernmost of the large peninsulas in county Kerry. It features the famous Slea Head Drive, arguably the most scenic coastal road in Europe (on a sunny day). A visit was long overdue. After all, it’s only a 2 hour drive from Limerick. My better half was under the impression that she was going on a romantic getaway. However, unbeknown to her, she had just signed up for a photographic adventure tour. By the time she realised, it was to late and we were on our way. On arrival, I missed the turnoff  for Dingle -unintentionally of course – and headed straight for the Connor Pass.

All images were taken with the X-T1, the 16mm, 23mm, 56mm & 90mm Fujinon lenses.
