A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry

A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry

This is my desktop background. I love it! After Inch Strand on the way to Dingle in County Kerry the road gets very narrow and winds through the hills before coming down to sea level again. The picture above should be a familiar scene to anyone who has travelled that road!

The day we drove down to Dingle was a stormy one but the sun suddenly broke through the clouds and I had to pull over and get half a dozen shots of the beautiful golden light, the countryside and the rainbow. Stunning, even if I do say so myself!

Since I had one request for print prices, I uploaded this to Red Bubble. Check out A pot of gold in the fields of Kerry over there. Lots of print options.

    Go han-deas, a Dhonncha! Bhí muid ann i 2005, agus chonaic muid a leithéid de speir iontach. Foirfe mar cúlra scátháin.

    Cracking shot! The light is stunning and the rainbow couldn’t have landed in a better position.

    Indeed a beautiful photo. Natural pictures of nature often make the most stunning visual images. BTW, did you find the Pot of Gold?
