Dusk at Dog’s Bay
Dogs Bay is a coral beach with crystal clear water just a few miles northwest of Roundstone and is overlooked by Errisbeg mountain. For this photo I waited until dusk to capture the warm post sunset afterglow. The receding tide created small rock pools which picked up some of the striking colours of the late evening sky

Lough Corrib SheepLough Corrib Sheep
This photograph of Lough Corrib was taken near Clonbur in County Galway. The nosey sheep were not a planned element of the photo but their unexpected intrusion into the final shot of the panorama really makes the shot for me.

Roundstone lies at the mouth of Bertraghboy Bay and is beautifully set overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at the foot of Errisbeg Mountain. It is one of the most stunning harbour villages in Connemara.
