A lighthouse somwhere between Dingle and Galway, that I passed by while sailing on the Jeanie Johnston
15×30 cm, oil on deep edge canvas, framed

I spotted this lighthouse from out at sea on the way from Dingle to Galway. My best guess is that it’s Bull Rock off the Kerry coast. Something about the position – not at the top of the rock but perched lower down right at the cliff edge – makes it seem especially remote and on guard, and under threat of tipping into the ocean it watches over.

Bull Rock?

Seasons move quickly in the mountains. This particular day started in spring, then suddenly plunged into the depths of a winter snow storm before tentatively resting in a warm summer. The upside of being on a mountain is having a great view to watch the seasons come and go; the departing snow clouds here created an incredible contrast with the bright sun.

Croagh Patrick overlooks the hundreds of islands of Clew bay. From atop the mountain the perspective creates the impression that the islands go on forever and stretch into the sky, especially when the weather hides the horizon. Different islands flash brightly and fade away as clouds and their shadows drift by.
