Summary

Take a grand tour of Kerry and discover its people, landscape and wildlife - from the lush pastures of the North to the tranquil lakes of Killarney, from the other-worldly Skellig Islands to the serenity of the Blaskets and the rainbows and snow-capped mountains of Macgillycuddy's Reeks.

Kerry Summary

Kerry: The Beautiful Kingdom by John Wesson

The Kingdom of Kerry is both a visitor's and a photographer's delight. Everywhere you turn, in every season, there's a feast for the eyes, from magnificent sunsets to huge Atlantic waves to the bare trees of winter. Discover miles and miles of beaches, rugged peninsulas, inlets and cliffs, as well as mountains, lakes, sheep and wild goats. The soft rains produce an abundance of flora, like bog cotton and fuchsia, while the lush, sweet grass is perfect for Kerry's famous dairy farming. The towns, like Killarney and Tralee, are lively and welcoming, and the people are proud of all things Kerry, from their Gaelic footballers to their writers and artists. In summer, festivals abound, like the Puck Fair in Killorglin, Listowel Writers' Festival or the Rose of Tralee, while locals and visitors alike also enjoy great fishing, regattas and GAA.

John Wesson celebrates Kerry's people and lifestyle, its moods and its magnificence. Come and explore this phenomenal natural wilderness, nestled on the Atlantic's edge. Here there is room to be alone ... but never lonely.

About John Wesson

John is based between England and County Kerry, Ireland, with much of his work focused upon the land and seascapes of the emerald isle. John's subject matter is much varied, preferring inspiring locations and original subjects to the contemporary, often cliched images seen. His quest for unique images has lead him into every corner of Kerry, from the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Skelligs, to some of its oldest abandoned buildings. Thanks to this quest he has found himself in some truly singular situations, such as the private mass held by Franciscan friars on Skellig Michael. John's work can be seen online at www.johnwesson.com, and is displayed in exhibitions and outlets across the County.
