Following the sun

I woke up at 5am yesterday morning and I was wide away so off I headed exploring…although this time I did wait until after 6am because I really don’t like walking in the dark.

I was going to head up Knocknarea but to be honest my legs haven’t recovered from the Glencar walk yet so I wanted to go a bit easier on myself. So as I was driving I decided to follow the sun and it took me to Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery.

Carrowmore is one of the oldest cemeteries in Ireland and is the largest one. It was magical watching the sun rise over these ancient stones and wondering about life as it would have been all those years ago.

It was the beginning of a very special day and I do feel that times are changing. The birds were singing and throughout the day I noticed more butterflies than I’d noticed for the whole of the summer. I also noticed white feathers, hundreds of them. Where ever I walked a feather was near. I found it very reassuring, like someone was watching out for me and telling me they were near.

I love these early mornings. Greeting the day before the rest of the world wakes up. Enjoying the silence and happy seeing life through my lens. I hope you like the photos.
