Film Photography – The Sheep’s Head Peninsula

In my last post, I shared the sounds and pictures from a four day trip to the Sheep’s Head Peninsula in County Cork, in the south west corner of Ireland. I promised a second post with some of the film pictures that I’d taken on the trip and so here they are…

The link above plays an episode of the Viewfinder Vikings podcast, recorded during the trip. Rather than talk about the journey after the event, I thought I’d try an audio-travelogue and add colour with a couple of field recordings as I went.
