The story behind this image

A week's stay in the west of Ireland found my wife Liz and I re-visiting some of our favourite places along the Wild Atlantic Way coastal drive.

Remembering holidays from years ago, we decided to spend a day exploring old haunts around the beautiful Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry.

With its high mountains and dramatic coastline, the Dingle Peninsula is a sensory treat under any conditions, and we were especially blessed with mixed weather, both sunshine and clouds in equal measure, which made for some great photographic opportunities.

Such as this panoramic view overlooking a secluded beach at Dunmore Head, now famous as a location used in the Star Wars film 'The Last jedi', but very beautiful in its own right.

Taking the series of images for this panoramic collage proved tricky, as the strong Atlantic breeze blowing at the time caused me to wobble quite a bit while perched on my rocky overlook.
