The Wild Atlantic Way

I had the chance to spend 3 days driving a small part of the Wild Atlantic Way earlier this year. It's a photographer's dream. Go if you ever get the chance. Travel outside the school holidays if you can, hire a tiny car to navigate the single track roads, and schedule plenty of time to sit on the beach and watch the waves. They are wild.

I only had time to explore the Dingle Peninsula. I had 4 seasons of weather in 3 days, acres of beach to myself, and even reasonably empty roads.

It is very, very green. And it only gets that way because of all the rain. Bring plenty of waterproofs for you, an umbrella to keep your camera dry, and a bazillion wipes to keep wiping your lens.

For all those long exposure shots you'll need a very sturdy tripod (it was very windy when I was there), and plenty of patience.
