OUGHTERARD Shrubbery, Autumn colours

      Some people believe Ireland is always green. So I would like to show you the wonderful fall colours of Connemara. Autumn is certainly one of the best seasons for nature photography. I don't need to say anything else, you can see for yourself.

 I hope you enjoyed your visit!!

Fall in love with the Irish green.

OUGHTERARD The Shrubbery in spring

     The Shrubbery is a lovely spot, it is situated along the Clifden road going out of Oughterard, about 5 min walk from the bridge. There are picnic tables,  so in summer this is the perfect place to enjoy the fresh air and to relax among the greenery. It could get pretty busy though if the weather is nice and warm. I have many photos from here so I will divide the Shrubbery photo blog into 4 sections, one for each seasons. 

     I am starting with Spring!

CONNEMARA Running before the rain

     If you are planning a holiday to Ireland you have to be prepared for lots of rain and moody weather. I don't mean to discourage anyone but for the last few years the summer  around here was not much of a summer it was more like a rainy season.
     There is one very important rule - don't ever leave without your rain gear or you will end up running before the rain...

CLIFFS OF MOHER unforgettable and impressive

This is definitely one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. It is not possible to visit Ireland and not to come here. 


To stand in the rain and brace yourself against the wild wind, hoping that you will not fly over the edge... You will never forget that experience. 

I have been here 4-5 times and only once the weather was good. What I mean by that is that it did not pour cats and dogs and the wind was fairly calm.

Nevertheless, the view is magnificent and it is by all means worth the trip.
