Of all the places I have wanted to photograph in Ireland, it was this abandoned home in County Kerry that I looked forward to most of all.  My tour partner Dan Sniffin showed me his picture of this location years ago  and it took my breath away.  His picture, taken in 1994 was chosen as one of two images that were used in the 1997 National Geographic Traveler calendar.

When we arrived, the conditions could not have been better.  The approaching storm and fast moving clouds made for ever changing light and shadow play on the house and land I think I made over 100 images from this location as the dramatic light kept changing so rapidly.  It was a moment I’ll never forget. I’m  grateful to have shared it with the group and most importantly, with Dan.

This is one take of a few that I’ll share in the weeks to come.
