Welcome to the heart of Connemara. Visit some wonderful places with me and my camera, some popular tourist spots and some hidden gems off the beaten path. Discover the secrets of the Irish countryside. Enjoy my photography!
Everyone has heard of the Burren plateau in county Clare, famous for its karst landscape and curious landforms. That does not mean there isn't any in Galway county. A fine example of karst landscape can be found in plenty of places hidden between hedgerows of hawthorns and hazel woods. Somewhere, in the middle on nowhere, between Oughterard and Killannin, in the Rosscahill area, there is a fantastic place. It is absolutely amazing, if you are not from around here it will blow your mind away with its unusual terrain and stunning view! I believe it is worth getting lost from the main road N59,(it connects Galway and Clifden), for a while so you can lay your eyes on it. It is worth the trip.
Probably you would wonder why on Earth would I need to post more photos from this one place, well because even thought I already showed you so many photos,I am far from finished. Here is another special day from Derroura Mountain Bike Trail, on N59 connecting Galway city with Clifden. If you are passing by, it is worth a few hours break from traveling and enjoying the fresh air and the wonderful views of Connemara.
Since I have been here so many times I am trying to organize my images in some order so they fit together in some way, maybe according to seasons or weather... So, here it is, my second post on Derroura in winter, the landscapes look completely different from the lush and glowing green of summer.
