A Quick Hello from Ireland

| September 10, 2012

Taken near the Muckross House in the southwest of Ireland

Since we are in the final week of our trip to Ireland, I thought I would take some time to say a quick hello. The pristine and seemingly untouched quality of Ireland has provided a wealth of picture making opportunities. The shot above, which is among the first photographs of our trip, says a lot about my impressions of this beautiful country. Especially in the west of Ireland, there is a laid back and unrushed feeling about this place. What can say that more than an Irishman arriving by a donkey-drawn carriage to milk a cow? The other impressionable aspect of Ireland is the friendliness of its people and their dry sense of humor. We have felt very much at home here in Ireland. By the time we drop our car off tomorrow, we will have covered about 1,000 miles on the twisty and narrow roads that lead to some of the most beautiful scenery on the world.

With more than 1,000 pictures made so far, I can’t wait to share some of them with you and, of course, serve a few up for the monthly painting challenge. We head to Dublin tomorrow for four days before returning home. Take care and see you soon!
