Killybegs boats

Was part of a charity bike ride from Tipperary town to Killybegs, Co Donegal over the weekend and took a few pictures whilst up there.

I've put some (mainly uncorrected) pictures from the run itself here-

Three boats moored. The larger two in the distance are laid up until September when the quota season starts.

Nice looking series of shots! I really like the last one as the composition is very pleasing and the colors are nice as well.

Thanks for sharing,

Thnak you Tuner571. I find the K10 really does compliment the colours present and every time I use it I come away even more impressed by the image quality.

I've got a few more of the fishing fleet and may well get round to putting them on my site.

Love the West Coast of Ireland - thanks for sharing.

Here's a shot of Killybegs I took while there back in 2006 - before I was a pentaxian (Panasonic FZ50):

Here's a slideshow I put together of the event although Youtube really does mess up the lighting. It only has three shades of mono- white, medium grey and black! Mind you it was not the brightest of weekends weather wise.

All taken on the K10

I'll admit I was drawn to the word "Killybegs" and was wondering what kind of boat that was . Very nice. Looks like a picturesqe place with a lot of visual interest. I like the one with the fog-enshrouded town in the background.
