Glendalough Lower Lake

Glendalough derives it’s name from the Irish name for the area, “Gleann Da Loch” which roughly translates as “glen of the two lakes”. It was a cold enough day so we only got a good look at the lower lake, but I’m looking forward to visiting again!

    This is a lovely shot – well done. Composition is pretty good and seems nice and clear…only distraction is the blown out sky – but thats what happens in Ireland..if your camera allow u to shoow in RAW you can sometimes repair it….Thans and keep up the good work…PC
