Sunset over the Rocks at Kinard Strand, Dingle, Co. Kerry

Kinard Strand, on the southern side of the Dingle Peninsula, is a superb location for landscape photography. Its steep, sandy and rocky storm beach is ever- changing, open to the massive swells that crash onto the shoreline during Atlantic storms. The sea stack “Siorrach” or "the foal”, just off Bull's Head, is visible from the cliffs and the beach at Kinard. It creates an exciting subject for your camera, especially when the massive waves smash into it during the wild and blustery conditions often present in this exposed location.

With a tidal range that covers the entire beach, the extreme low tides during spring and autumn reveal the entire sandy and rocky shoreline. These mini stacks and interesting rock formations provide a surreal and wondrous landscape, rich with amazing compositions.

By timing a visit with the ebbing of an evening spring tide and sunset, I captured this composition of the mini stacks with the Doonmore promontory fort on the “Doon” behind them. To the left of the image is Valentia Island, some 16 miles distant on the horizon.
