My Best 12 Photos Of 2014

Time for a look back over 2014 and to self-indulgently pick what I think are my 12 best shots of the year (last year it was only 10, so more indulgent this time).  Its hard to be objective and separate the photo from the location, or trip, when it was taken.  I would have loved to have included something from the day I climbed Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s highest mountain, as it was a special occasion for me, but the light just wasn’t great that day, and although the photos bring back great memories, they probably aren’t among my best of the year.  The same would apply to some other places I’ve been, so I’ve tried to be ruthless.  The photos are in random order.

 

On top of Errigal, Co Donegal

On top of Mount Errigal, looking towards The Poison Glen.  This one got a Photo Of The Month on Mountainviews.ie

Sunset on Tramore Strand at Rosbeg, Co. Donegal.  Again, it was hard to objective here, as it was our son’s first camping trip, at a location where I spent many brilliant childhood holidays.

Although Carrauntoohil didn’t make it, many other photos from our holiday in Kerry did.  Unsurprisingly, for a photographer, Kerry was a highlight of my year.  Taken at sunset on Inch Strand.

 

Slea Head, Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry

Also, in Kerry, at Slea Head, on the Dingle Peninsula.
