Camera enthusiasts put Tralee Bay in the picture

A sunset over Fenit Lighthouse by Kirk Kelly was chosen as the best amateur photograph, while a picture of horse racing on Ballyheigue beach by Domnick Walsh was picked as the best professional shot.

Blennerville Windmill and Fenit Lighthouse were two of the two most popular landmarks for pictures.

Chief executive of Tralee Chamber Alliance, Kieran Ruttledge, said the competition “truly caught the imagination of the general public”.

“All the images portray the heritage, culture, and beauty of the region and we are looking forward to showcasing the cream of the crop to a local audience at our exhibition,” he said.

A selection of the best photos will be on display to the public from Sept 20 to Sept 30. The photos will also feature in a leaflet aimed at promoting Tralee Bay as a destination for tourists.

The Wild Atlantic Way Exhibition will run from 12-4.30pm between this Friday and Tuesday, Sept 30, excluding weekends, at 13/14 Denny St, Tralee. Admission is free.

Each of the shortlisted photographs will be featured on www.tralee.ie from Friday.
