Last of Autumn

You can’t really feel the autumn anymore while walking the forest or the bog lands of Connemara.
Although, the other day, when the sun hit the trees just right and the light was glowing in the last of the leaves, I felt that magical moment as if autumn was saying good bye…

Until next year

    All of these pictures are wonderful but I particularly love those shots looking along the path with the trees reaching up to the light (they remind me of a fabulous print by Hasui).
    Here in the north, we’ve had our first hard frosts; car window-scraping this morning!

    Absolutely beautiful photos. They are like paintings. I do watercolours and it reminded me of a landscape painting.
    Can you tell me specifically where that forest was where you were walking your dogs? My husband and I are retiring to Derrymoyle, Outhterard near Lough Corrib, and we have two dogs too. Can you tell me where there are good walks near oughterard where I can let my border collie off leash? I know there is New Village Forest. Is that a nice walk?
    I really loved your photos and I am glad to have found your blog.


    1. Newvillage forest is where we walk our dogs as well, it is a great place and quite popular. Can get pretty crowded sometimes. Another popular route is on the Pier road going off into the bogs, The Old Bog Road. Very nice area as well. Perfect for a with dogs. let me think about other places and will get back to you. 🐕👍😉

        I wold appreciate your help. One of our dogs, Molly is a border collie, who was abused before we rescued her. She loves to be off leash, but is afraid of people. Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
        Thank you so much!
