Day Three: Long Walk on a Misty Morning
On Saturday morning (which happened to be St. Patrick’s Day) I set out early just as the sun was coming up, and most of the landscape was still shrouded in a heavy mist.
These photos are from the lane that connects Carrickadorrish to the village of Aughnacliff. The gorse-lined pathways and arbors of cedar, laurel, and oak were a treat for my urge to ramble through the area’s nature. The webs of tiny “flying spiders” were strewn everywhere, collecting dewdrops like little kaleidoscopes. This was a great chance to try for some macro shots of the local flora.
By the time I headed back, the sun started to come out (and didn’t really leave for the duration of my trip!) resulting in what I call a “sun fog” – a magical phenomenon which only Ireland could offer.
