Today was one of those perfect days. It’s so long since I’ve been off exploring and I’ve really missed going out and about with the camera so I made the most of it today.
Lucy and Laurence got me a voucher for Afternoon Tea at Ashford Castle for my birthday last year and this was the first chance I had to use it. I left bright and early this morning and although it was cold and frosty the light was wonderful.
I’ll do a blog about Ashford Castle tomorrow but I wanted to share some of the weather photos I got with you today. Talk about four seasons in one day! This is one of the things I love most about Ireland, how the light can change in a matter of minutes and make a place look totally different.
The top four photos are all taken at Clare Lake, Claremorris. It’s a gorgeous loop walk and the photos were taken at various parts of the walk. It’s also home to a couple of giants….but more about that in another blog 🙂
This photo was taken at Ashford Castle. The castle is in a stunning location, overlooking Lough Corrib. Just when I arrived it started pouring with rain but I love the sky in this shot.
On the way home I could see rain clouds in the distance and the most beautiful rainbow. I had to pull over to take this pic, I love the way the rainbow is behind the little cottage.
As I was driving the sky was turning all different colours so I took a little detour to Lough Talt – which is in Sligo but I couldn’t resist putting this photo into the blog post.
I know I’m biased but I think Ireland is such a beautiful country and I’ve had such a lovely day exploring more of it.
