So last Saturday, I finally picked up the camera again.
Gathering dust since the summer, its first major outing since then was to beautiful, rugged Connemara in the west of Ireland – the poor ol’ Nikon deserved a treat!
The photography Gods were smiling on us as we got a fine, sunny, rain-free day – rare enough at the best of times, never mind January!
These photos are ordered chronologically from first light to last light, or from our Salthill base in the morning to the sunset in Connemara.
They show our stop offs on our way to Connemara National Park, which were made randomly, when we liked the look of something… and I liked the look of a lot of reflections!
And then they show, when we got to the park, the hike up Diamond Hill and back down again, as the sun set on a great day.
