My somewhat quirky views as I gaze at the world around me!

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: SKY ROAD, CLIFDEN, CO. GALWAY

CONNEMARA CASTLE

I’m sure this castle has a name but I don’t know it.  It’s located off the Sky Road, outside Clifden, in County Galway, Ireland.  This image is just so quintessentially Irish……castle ruins, relentless ivy covering it, emerald fields, stone walls, gentle mountains, the Atlantic Ocean…..it has it all!

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: CLIFDEN, CO. GALWAY

CLIFDEN, COUNTY GALWAY

This view of the little town of Clifden,  (the “capital” of Connemara) County Galway, Ireland,  entranced me with its ethereal, dream-like quality.  The shadows of the clouds crossing the mountains made for an ever-changing pattern of light and dark.  The aptly named  Sky Road begins here and continues west to the end of the peninsula in a  12 km loop of spectacular scenery.
