Weekly Photo Challenge : Local

wp-1476724568018.jpg

This photo was taken at evening time in Maynooth, Co Kildare.   It is part of Maynooth Castle, a ruin of a 12th century castle, and the walls still look as solid as the day they were built.     This was the local place of employment for most of Maynooth in past centuries, as the castle was known as one of the richest and largest estates in the locality.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Landscape

Lake Kariba at sunset, Zimbabwe

My photos for this challenge were  taken at Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe, when we spent Christmas there a year ago.   The distant hills, the water of the lake, and the cloudy sky, all make it a sunset to remember, and it is the time of the evening when you grab a beer, or a gin and tonic, and sit outside and watch the ever changing landscape.

Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe

Usually the sun sets very quickly in Africa.  One minute the sun is there, and you can almost see it sinking down below the horizon, but the reflections that follow are always memorable.
