Happy New Year

IMG_7896I should have done this post yesterday so a belated Happy New Year to you all. This is the first Christmas where I haven’t got ‘cabin fever’ from not going out and I’ve actually enjoyed lazing around the house. Mind you I do have a project on the go that has kept me busy (more about that later). I did get out and about taking photos yesterday though as I had to pick up Lucy and thought I’d take some photos on the way. The photo above and the two below are from the Holy Well, Sligo.

IMG_7935I stopped off at the Holy Well to light a candle for someone I lost last year. They had a great life and did everything they wanted so it’s more of a celebration of their life.

IMG_7943After my visit to the Holy Well I headed to Slish Wood but it was raining so I only got one photo from there. I was really surprised how many cars were there, New Year’s Day here just seems like another day for most people. A few of the shops in Sligo were open too.

IMG_7957After my quick photo at Slish Wood I went to Innisfree, the sky was really too grey to get a good photo but I did get a photo with my phone of the ‘Sleeping Warrior’.

IMG_7618Next it was on to Dromahair, Co. Leitrim and the River Bonet. Apologies for the amount of water shots in this blog!

IMG_7972The last photo for this blog is one I took today. I was driving along and had to pull over to take this one, I love the expression on the horses face.

IMG_7634Oh and I nearly forgot. Pixie the Irish photo sharing site put one of my photos in their top 50 of 2013!! I’m delighted! What a great start to the new year.

    Happy new year to you too!
    And congratulations for being in the top 50.

    Seeing a photo of the holy well in Sligo brings back great memories of years ago when I visited the holy well myself, thanks for that.

    A bit late, but the wish is the same – here’s to a very happy, healthy and hopeful 2014. Wonderful photographs capturing the beauty that’s all around us – all deserving of the awards and praise, with many more to come over the year.
