Rain over Rossbeigh

Rain over Rossbeigh

Personally I prefer this wider view of this scene.Last weekend we had really bad weather here in Ireland. Gale force winds, rain, hail, snow. You name it...We were down in Kerry for the St. Patrick's Day weekend and I decided to go for a little hike above Rossbeigh Strand. BAD IDEA! I got pelted by hail and rain. But I also got a few nice shots of Dingle Bay.NEWS: As of late 2008 Rossbeigh Strand has been cut in half by wave erosion and look now quite different from the above image. image looks tilted clockwise, but in fact it isn't. The shore in the distance is Inch Strand which runs almost paralell to Rossbeigh. But is unfortunatelly not parallel with the mountains.)
