24 hours before Level 3 lockdown in late September, I headed for Kerry. I was desperate to try out a new video camera that was loaned to me for the weekend. The light on the west coast is always beautiful this time of year. Saturday was spent chatting and mingling with the locals on Inch Beach.

Ephemeral light. What a privilege to capture this. Minutes only it lasted, before it evaporated into a memory.
