We went hiking in the Glen of Aherlow at the weekend, and when we stopped for lunch after about two hours’ walking, I saw this old abandoned bench, and managed to get a side shot through the long grass and rushes. This bench was in a fantastic spot, looking across at the very majestic Galtee mountains – who wouldn’t want to stop and sit here for a while.

When hillwalking we often come across these ‘fresh’ clouds and mist after the rain, but it’s usually a sign that the day is warming up, so its not all bad!

Today’s challenge is Landscape. I enjoy hillwalking and for that reason, I have many many photos of landscapes taken here in Ireland, and in other countries also. The photo above was taken on top of the Galtee Mountains in Tipperary, with hills as far as the eye can see, and down below you can see the path that brought us to this spot!
My second shot is from Zimbabwe. Travelling on the road towards Mana Pools and the Zambezi river,this is a view point on the escarpment, where you can see nothing but bush land, all the way to the Zambian hills.

We all connect with people every day, sometimes a good connection, sometimes maybe not so good, but we can never be completely isolated and that is a good thing, and especially as people get older, and possibly they live on their own,then they welcome any connection with others to make the day brighter.
I went hillwalking yesterday in the lovely Glen of Aherlow, in County Tipperary, a beautiful area near the Galtee Mountains. There was a big group of us on the walk, and it was great to connect with old friends,meet new ones, and catch up with everyone. This photo was taken about 20 minutes from the end of the walk when we stopped at the Christ the King statue (Ireland has a lot of this type of thing!) – this statue overlooks the Galtee mountains, and whilst we admired the view and had a ‘sus beag’ (little rest), we ‘connected’ some more!
