" Go on, go on, go on... you know you will!" Wink

A small cottage on the way to Silver Strand somewhere along the Kinnadoohy road.

Just as I was finishing up I got a bit nervous of a vehicle that stopped and sounded it's horn, thinking it was an irate Irish farmer with a savage dog and a shotgun (the boys gave me the fear of god about trespassing being a big deal in Ireland), but it turned out to be Mari, Maeve and Nikki Smile

The big ring in the sky was there - it's the sun trying it's best to peek out...

Cheers, Goggz

Great little shot this, with bags of texture and a great use of a w/a lens. Personally I would prefer a stronger sky though.

I absolutely love this - the detail and texture in the cottage wall are beautiful and the light inside makes it all the more poignant somehow - a reminder of the welcoming light there would've been when it was occupied.
Kind regards,
Anna

One of your very best Pete - love the surrealness of the light inside as per Anna-w's comment above. Did you put the fire out before you left? Wink Tongue
