There is this fantastic place tucked deep into Newvillage Woods.
We call it THE HIDDEN LAKE because if you don’t know it is there it just pops out of nowhere between the trees. It is the most amazing site.
Only 1 hour and a 1/2 walk from Oughterard if you feel like walking one gorgeous day.
I am positive most people don’t even know it is there.
So here is a few shots. Some of them are from last autumn and some from the summer.
Last night I had a change of scenery, instead of the forest I walked the city
Sometimes it is necessary to grab the camera and escape in the garden.
You never know what you can find 😍🍁🍃🐕🐈
Do you know what is photographer’s worst nightmare?
Well, not being able to take photographs of course. Today the weather was really bad and stormy when I went out to walk the dogs and I decided to leave my camera and even my phone at home.
Bad, bad decision. I regretted it all the time I was out.
I had the most amazing walk!! Yes, the weather was stormy and wet, I got showered twice and I dried out after that but it was absolutely amazing!! I walked on the High road, just out of Oughterard. The name justifies the view that accompanied my walk till its end and back. You have no idea what Connemara had in store for me today, it was the most amazing of days!!
The dark clouds were flying so low over my head I felt as if I could touch them if I just stretch hard enough. Right above them, there were patches of brilliant blue sky smiling at me while I was getting showered right under. Because make no mistake, the wind was really strong and in a hurry, it really had some urgent business somewhere over the lake.
Still, the air was warm, crisp and shiny, the colours all around me vivid and bright – perfect conditions for nature photography, well, if we forget the constant drizzle flying in all directions at the same time…
I took a lot of photos this morning in my head, yes I can do that, I just wish I can show them to you now. I can see in photos and if I don’t have a camera at hand to do it in reality, it can drive me crazy …
All I can do now is show you a picture of the dogs sleeping content next to the fireplace because they had a grand time and they were not bothered about photos, on the contrary probably they were happy I had no camera with me – they did not have to wait for me while I stop to take photos every few meters, I am sure it is such a drag for them…
