Seagulls, seals and sunsets

I’ve not been inspired much lately when it comes to taking pictures. I guess it’s difficult trying to capture the right shot and trying to entertain a 13 month old in a buggy who likes to keep going! My sister took the buggy while we walked the beaches so I didn’t really have much choice as I hate being empty handed.Β  By the time we had walked the second beach (about 20 minutes of procrastinating) I saw a flock of seagulls dipping in and out of the water and I hesitantly took some shots, nothing to get too excited about. On the way back we found a dead baby seal washed up on the beach so that was another few shots (I think people thought I was a bit odd taking pictures of a dead seal pup). But it was only on the way back from tea and cake in the Lemon Leaf in Kinsale that I was bowled over. You’ll see why at the end of the post!

I think this was the most epic sunset I’ve ever seen…It started like this
