Coumeenole Beach, Dingle

Ireland''s west coast, the Wild Atlantic Way conjures up images of stormy ocean waves and barren rocky headlands.

And for much of its 2,500 or so kilometres it is that way, but it isn't barren and not always rocky; it is visually scenic.

Panoramic Ireland returned to Dingle recently for a photography workshop in one of Ireland's most beautiful places.

Here is the famous Coumeenole beach, complete with gull and those gentle waves that the Atlantic sometimes gives us. To the right is the rocky headland of Dunmore Head and the Blasket Islands beyond.

It's amazing that even in August, the tourist-filled month we still had this scenic place, featured in David Lean's 1970 epic film Ryan's Daughter, to ourselves.

Apart, of course, that is for the gull.

Join me, Panoramic Ireland, on a photography workshop in Dingle, County Kerry all year round. Find out more here.
