Some of the photographs I like most are the ones that simply show the beauty in nature. This can be done on grey misty days in the North West of Ireland. In fact in those grey days, there is some beautiful colour if you can only see it.
I will number the photographs so that I can explain which group belong to the Saturday walk of Benbulben and which belong to Glencar on Sunday.
I am aware that many of the photographs are very similar but it is the effect of the collection together that I like. Photographs 1 to 5 were taken on Saturday December 7th 2013 on my Benbulben climb. I hike from Luke's Bridge along this stream towards the mountain. This is the stream that feeds the Grange and area water supply (I think).
Photographs 6 to 25 are taken in Glencar on Sunday 8th December 2013. They are all taken in the Leitrim part of Glencar. I include a few photographs of the very misty mountain and "sheep safely grazing", I love the red marking on the sheep against the colours of the hills.
The stream that features in the Glencar photographs is the stream (to the best of my knowledge) that feeds into the famous Glencar Waterfall which I have included in photograph 25.
