The 'Irish Harp' memorial garden on the Sheep's Head Peninsula to the Air India plane crash in 1985, due to an extremist group bombing. The aircraft went down in the sea off County Cork. A most beautiful setting for such a sad memorial.

Sheeps Head Peninsula, County Cork, South-West of Ireland: Sheeps Head on the Sheep's Head Peninsula is a splendid picnic spot, though there is a cafe open in the summer too. The scenery and walking are quite spectacular, overlooking the Atlantic seascape, Dunmanus Bay and the hills of the Beara Peninsula across Bantry Bay. I think there is a little cafe at the Sheep's Head itself? Either way its a great picnic spot and as beautiful short scenic stroll as you can get in Ireland!

16c.  The Sheep's Head Peninsula (2), Co West Cork - Sunset studies (a)

A series of different exposures of through the evening from the Sheeps Head Peninsula, looking north, with the sunset over Bantry Bay and Hungry Hill (on the right below) on the Beara Peninsula. The sunsets in the West of Ireland are fantastic, especially if the sun sets over a combination of the sea, islands or, as in this case, the next peninsula. The West Coast of Ireland is a fantastic place to play around with different camera settings - a photographic paradise, even if I'm that that good myself - hopefully the pictures do the talking!
