Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

This week Sara at Daily Post has challenged us to find photos that draw the eye beyond the foreground, or point of focus. This is a challenge indeed, for there are so many possibilities in my photo library. I have chosen images from our recent trip overseas, I hope you enjoy each one … and with the flowers at Giverney, look for the almost hidden cottage in the background .

A-Z Archive: S is for Solitude, Seafood, Sunset in Ireland

One of our favourite corners of Ireland is Conemarra in County Galway on the west coast.  When we were there in 2006 we stayed in a tiny cottage on a bare slope, where there were more stones than grazing land. The waterways were virtually deserted, just right for peaceful reflection and sketching. Nearby was the most picturesque fishing harbor, a little town called Roundstone, with a seafood restaurant. We dined at ODowd’s, and watched the sun set over the Twelve Pins (or Bens), and lights slowly come on around the bay.
