Conor Pass Lakes and Mountains
Driving Conor Pass as a photographer is always a journey into the unknown. It may be summertime elsewhere on the peninsula and murky up here. You aren't always rewarded for your efforts but on this day, with the golden early morning sunlight over Mullaghveal, I felt very lucky indeed.
Top Of The Pass
Looking towards Dingle town from the car park at the top of the pass on a bright morning.
Clogharee Lough and Lough Atlea from the top of Conor Pass. The pass always looks different, depending both on the season and on the light. It is always revealing itself in new ways.
Above the snow line on a cold morning. Gone are the vibrant colours of summer on this day, replaced by an almost mono palette.
Winter On The Pass
Loughs Clogharee and Atlea in winter. The lush greens of summer are gone up here, although much of the peninsula remains colourful throughout the year.
View Towards Cloghane
A bright and clear day, giving a view from Conor Pass towards Cloghane on the northern side of the Dingle Peninsula.
After A Freeze
Just before it gets really narrow and climbs more steeply, the imposing rock face above Peddler's Lake makes the Conor Pass look like a road to nowhere.
Dingle In A Storm
Menacing cloud and heavy rain approaches Dingle, straight off the Atlantic Ocean.
Sheep Of Conor Pass
Many sheep make it clear they do not want visitors and walk away, whilst others will happily pose for you...briefly!
Mountains In Winter
Despite the season and the frost, the colour and beauty of this place endures.
Misty Dingle Morning
A beautiful, colourful morning looking towards the town of Dingle.
It may be cold on a winter's morning but the warmth of the sun can still bring comfort.
