    We cannot live on politics alone.

    Stayed at the foot of Mt Errigal in Donegal a few times. A lovely location. EnyaLand.

    It had been overcast all day with low grey cloud. Then far of on the Atlantic ocean horizon the sun began to emerge low in the sky and slowly but surely it's light bearing a purple hue, crept across the calm water just like a searchlight as it headed towards the shore.
    Cars were stopping all along the coastal road and the occupants camera laden were getting out and standing in awe at the unfolding scene. One of those magic moments etched in our memories.
    Nevermind sunsets in the pacific islands, the sunsets here are better then those places. There is a great beauty here.

    Yes we get great sunsets. The song Galway Bay, made them famous.

    Telli1,

    Mini skirts were out in circa 1963. In some small towns women were still wearing them in the 1970s,80s,90s.......

    Impressive, looks almost like K2 (apart from being a real life midgety mountain in comparison). Was not expecting to see a photo of an Irish mountain so steep and heavily snowed over like that.

    Thranduil, it's not snow. it's the bare rock. The mountain is impressive from all directions.
    If you search images of Mt Errigal you will see for yourself how bare it is.

    Between one Christmas and New Year was down in Kerry and it snowed!

    Doing the road from Sneem to Killarney was absolutely gorgeous, I never had a camera but probably just as well as could never had done it justice.
