From the Side : Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Overlooking Galtee mountains

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.

Travel Theme : Paths

Glenaloch Walk, Drimoleague

The photo above was taken on a hike near Dunmanway in West Cork a few weeks ago, visibility was a bit hazy, but the scenery was still beautiful.

George the Sky, Dunmanway

Along the way we came across this sign showing the way to the top of the mountain where an old man called George lived for many years, his house was so remote and high in the hills that he became known as ‘George the Sky’ and it’s nice to see that he is remembered.

In spite of the hustle and bustle, there are quiet corners in London, such as this old ruin of a church near Monument Tube Station, it’s St Dunstan in the East, with benches and a garden to sit and rest after a busy morning in the city.

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge : March 10, 2017

Cee posts great challenges every week, and they are always a great opportunity to trawl through the archives if you haven’t been able to get any new photos to post.

This challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.

Bridges of Amsterdam

The above was taken when on a canal cruise in Amsterdam, and yes, our boat was quite flat, as you can see below,  and managed to get under these low bridges without mishap!

And now back on dry land and back home in Ireland, here is one of the hiking trails we did recently, which goes right to the top of the hill, almost in a straight line, though there were a few stops along the way to get our breath back!

Tuesdays of Texture: Week 6

Shehy mountains, West Cork

Patches of snow and winter grass

Can you hear the crunching of boots as we tramp through the cold?    This was us last Sunday on top of a frosty mountain in west Cork.  The views were great but there wasn’t so much time to stop and stare!
