Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #227 – Home Sweet Home

Too many places to choose from this week as Tina asks us where would we bring a visitor to our country? I have to narrow it down to our County – County Mayo, west of Ireland.

Firstly it would be our wild Atlantic coast. Always amazing no matter what time of year you visit.

Lacken Bay

So many beautiful spots to spend a day exploring.

The Mullet peninsula, where I spent much of this summer working, has lots of beautiful coast, but also stunning flora rich machair grassland, buzzing with insects.

Go a little bit inland and you can explore lakes and peatlands.

Lakes, peatlands and native woodland

The woods are small, but perfect places for early spring or autumn strolls.

Clydagh Bridge forest

And just one more – the Great Western Greenway, 44 km of old railway track that you can cycle or walk free of traffic. Perfect any time of year.

Many thanks to Tina for letting us apprecate a bit of home sweet home.

    I’ve visited several times Karina and think your country is among the most beautiful. It is so lush and green and there is so much open space to be explored. I’d love to visit with someone like you who really knows the hidden places that tourists don’t usually see! Loved your images – a beautiful reminder of your pastoral countryside.
