last day at the edge of the earth

    Newer Older

    My last day in Ireland was spent driving along the Dingle Peninsula. I had planned to visit this Peninsula all along, but the decision was solidified for certain when I stumbled across Peter Cox's gallery in Killarney the week before.

    This was basically my last stop of the last day of my trip. I had driven over Conor Pass, glimpsed the ancient bee hive dwellings, and landed in Dunquin with an appreciation of how remote and ancient the Dingle Peninsula was. I climbed down to an narrow perch overlooking these cliffs and spent a half hour making photographs and taking it all in. Despite the beauty, I ached with the sadness of knowing that when I left this place, I would be leaving Ireland.

      Beautiful, Danielle. The Dingle is one of my favourite places on earth. I ran in the Dingle Ultra Marathon (50mile) last year which ran up and over the Conor Pass from the North side of the Peninsula before heading into town and then the marathon loop around the coast.
      I'm planning on entering again next Summer (my Aussie Winter) and I'll definitely bring a bag of cameras with me next time... as well as my running shoes!
      Thanks for the image: it brings back some happy memories.
