Distant Hills

While many parts of Ireland had to deal with several inches of snow yesterday, it was a lovely day in Cork.

It *is* quite beautiful, with the variations in the acreage as you go to the horizon. Have you ever done shots at Ardmore? I remember it being beautiful and a bit sleepy at the same time, though that was 16 years ago — wonderful ruins and a round tower…

No, I don’t think I’ve been to Ardmore yet, although the ruins pictured here look very familiar so maybe I visited in the distant past!
Thanks for your comment, I drove past a lay-by, spotted that scene and had to reverse back up the road to park!
Much cloudier today unfortunately but I might still get out for a drive.

Yes, that’s definitely it. I might scan a few of mine and put them up some time (if you send me your email address and I’d be happy to call them out to you).

There’s also a great potter there named Mary Lincoln; we bought a beautiful teapot of hers.
