I went out to the Bog Road between Clifden and Moyard last week. It was about 5.30pm and the light was really beautiful, low and clear. The colour of the bog grasses was striking – rich metallic shades of gold, copper and bronze. There was still some warmth left in the sun but the wind had a bite to it which isn’t evident in these pictures – the colours are so deceptively warm, it could be some hot and arid place..
I wandered down this road to get a better look – a typical Irish side road with impressive pot holes..
Mmmm, need a tractor to get through this next bit, good job I brought my wellies..but just look at the blues reflected in this pool.
One last picture, I like the way the hill peaks over the top of the road in this one.
