Winter Light Tour

Every day, November – March.

We leave Dingle visiting locations around the west side of the Dingle Peninsula as we follow The Slea Head Drive. Even the shortest days of the year mean we’ll be touring or on locations for 6 or 7 hours although breaks will be shorter than they are in the autumn and spring.  Where’s any chill in the air or bite in the wind we’ll always take more regular short breaks indoors to warm up between locations. As I live locally I’m well aware of all the handy places for snacks, tea, coffee and facilities even in the depths of winter!  Following a break around mid-day for lunch, we’ll begin exploring some promising locations for the magic hours and perhaps be lucky and end the day with a sunset over the Blasket Islands.  For the evening hours, participants are more than welcome to choose their own specific location if they wish, and be dropped off and collected, as there are a handful of excellent spots around the Dunquin and Coumeenoole areas that are within a couple of minutes’ drive of each other.

All locations on this tour are extremely easy to access from the minibus, one or two locations can require a moderate level of fitness and agility to explore them further, but they can all be photographed from our initial vantage point. Please contact us if you’re interested in accessing some of the more challenging locations around the peninsula and taking your own private custom tour with us. While advice, hints and tips about settings, exposure, composition and filters are readily available on this tour, if you do want to learn to be more creative with your camera and its settings, why not take your own individual or small private group, beginners or landscape photography workshop on the day before, or following the tour. 

If the weather’s forecast to be very poor on the chosen day, the tour will be arranged to the nearest fair day, if you can’t participate on an alternative day, a full refund of any deposit or payment towards the tour will be made.
