On the way to the Shops

On the way to the Shops

It seems like ages since I've had time to go on a dedicated photo trip. Most of my shots are grabbed whenever I can, coffee break, lunch time, and soon, after work.
Even at the weekends there are things to do so unfortunately I can't just load up my gear and head off to a scenic location.
I decided to take a short detour before I went into town for some grocery shopping this afternoon. This was taken at the hill of Faughart where there are spectacular views of south Armagh and north Louth.

This is a spectacular view. You captured a beautiful scene with the light, clouds and beautiful colours of the sheep in the countryside.

You live in a splendid landscape and your photos always seem to capture the most glorious light on the land. V

Even the clouds seem to be conspiring to make this the perfect bucolic scene. (Ah, just skimmed the comments; two others got there first on this thought but I'll leave it in anyway.)
Probably the biggest down side of winter is that it provides you with so little light to do those trips in.

A gorgeous bucolic scene. V

That is some picturesque detour! Loving the light and I have to say there are some chubby sheep in that flock.
Chris Morton14-Jan-2012 22:20
with views like that, I would skip the shopping and starve in the true artistic tradition
