Though I am (as usual) coming quite late to this week’s lens artist challenge (#193 – They Say It’s Your Birthday), it appears that Johnbo and I actually share the same birthday. So last Saturday (our shared birthday) was busy ferrying kids to their usual Saturday activities, so we waited till Sunday to complete a lovely birthday walk. It’s great when your birthday falls on the weekend and you don’t have to worry about work!
We went to Union wood in County Sligo.
The wood is mainly coniferous but there are patches of open heath, and deciduous woodland including an oak wood trail.
And of course a birthday walk would not be complete without some lovely flowers and bees.
And the view from Union rock which overlooks the ox mountains and the sea and Knocknarea is just stunning.
A big thank you, and belated birthday wishes to Johnbo for the challenge.
