Stalking the Cat

A year ago no one would have guessed that we would be locked at home, separated from our friends and family, struggling to keep our emotions and feelings in check.

On top of it all, the weather has been pretty dry and sunny for a while now, tempting people to leave their houses and break the confinement rules. While some of us are staying put and being good we read about others that go to the beaches, have fun, who knows how careful they are....

Not very fair is it!!

So to occupy myself the other day I stalked the cat in the garden with my camera...Why not..For me it was fun... Doing your hobbies and things you enjoy helps make the time pass faster and it is definitely more entertaining.

NICE TO SEE YOU and HAPPY EASTER

 OK.  I admit, it has been a while since I was here in this blog.

Why..Well I suppose, life, work and all the rest..never enough time for this, never enough time for that...and my most favourite thing to do suffered the most.

It is sad really. When we let life takes us where we don't really want to go.

But today I decided to come back with a few images from Connemara, images that I cherish .

So nice to see you again and hopefully I will stick here for longer this time.

By the way HAPPY EASTER

Before the sun rises

For me one of the best moments of the day is right before the sun rises above the horizon and a few minutes after that.

Later on the day rolls out and everything changes -the light, the feeling in the air, people start to wake up and make noises from their houses and you can feel it in the atmosphere around you and that early morning feeling that the world belongs to you vanishes slowly.

Believe me, it's one of the best feelings ever. There is only you, the singing #birds, and the waking #nature around you. Peaceful, Invigorating, refreshing and simply amazing.


Before the sun rises, my favourite part of the day.
