I am not a great distance traveller. For me I get as much wandering down a local beach as going to some foreign country. Don’t get me wrong, I love to explore new places and cultures, but I find the actual travelling stressful and like my home-comforts too much!
This is one of my favourite Mayo beaches.
Earth meets ocean.
Downpatrick head on the NW coast of County Mayo here in the West of Ireland has some of the most dramatic sea cliffs you can find in Ireland. It was a bit foggy the day this picture was taken.
Inspired by this week’s Photo Challenge – Atop
I love being at the beach any day but last week the light was extra special. This week’s weekly photo challenge is – ambience.
Relax — give me a day at the beach any day but especially in the summer – heaven!!
At this time of year we expect some frosty mornings, after all it is winter. But a whole week of frosty mornings is quite unusual for the West of Ireland.
As autumn takes it grip I get nostalgic for summer days on the beach.
No weekly photo challenge this week so thought I used the daily prompt “Fragile” instead.
Butterflies are amazing creatures. Seemingly fragile they manage to survive all an Irish summer can throw at them; some get a bit battered looking but they are no less beautiful.
Why not plant a few flowers in your garden to attract some of these wonderful creatures?
