Continuing my series on Fairy trees.
Hawthorn Trees, recognised in Ireland as the fairy tree are often seen lone in the landscape, as it is considered bad luck to cut one down, remove branches or even hang things upon it in case you disturb the little folk.
Hawthorn trees are fascinating, found alone in the landscape. How did they get there and how many times has mans plans been diverted due to the mythical significance of these hardy little trees. They may not be seen classical elegant but there is an undeniable connection to something much more ancient as one gazes upon their gnarled and weathered appearance.
An image from one of the many fantastic islands of the coast of the west of Ireland there are to explore. This was taken on Tory Island; a larger island 15km off the north coast of County Donegal measuring three miles long. Dotted along its one road running the spine of the island where these red benches, which stand out in its barren landscape. I am not completely sure of their purpose, to allow elderly islanders to stop along the road or perhaps simply for anyone wishing to stop and admire the view.
Exploring many of the small islands off the west coast of Ireland from North Donegal to the Dingle Peninsula. Here is a shot from the Blasket Islands off the Coast of County Kerry.Read More
Got the scans back today and I had completely forgotten about this fantastic sunrise. The view is from Achill Island, County Mayo towards southern Mayo shot on Kodak Portra.
Inishbofin Island is the first of a series of three islands off the coast of Magheraroarty. It is an absolutely magical place to visit.
I have been shooting a fair amount of film over the summer months on various cameras.
