Camera: Panasonic DMC-TZ3.
As you may have gathered by yesterday's post on my book blog, we've returned from our trip to Ireland. We had a wonderful time doing not very much at all, although we did explore a bit of the countryside from our base in Glandore, in West Cork, and went on a rather long drive to the Ring of Beara (one down from the more famous Ring of Kerry) on the Monday afternoon.
The above photograph was taken part-way through that six-hour drive, en-route to Dursey Island, a remote outpost only accessible by an extremely dodgy-looking cable car. The landscape was windswept and desolate and very, very green. And no matter which direction you faced, the scenery was awe-inspiring in its beauty.
Once I've had time to wade through all my photographs (some 300 of them!) I'll post a selection of the best ones here. And I'll see what I can do to get a gallery up and running on my smugmug account too. But with our refurbishment still in full swing you might have to be patient...
