Stranded

Look Up

This week’s len artist photo challenge #13 encourages us to look up.

When I  am taking photos of flowers I sometimes like to get the perspective of looking up.

During our summer visit to Wales, I kept seeing these willowherb flowers.  Here they were growing on a tall soil roadside bank,  allowing me to look up and get the blue sky background.

Also in Wales these beautiful rose where climbing up an arbor in a garden.

Time to Relax

If we want time to relax, we enjoy heading to the coast. Dugort beach or Pollawaddy strand is situated on the north coast of Achill Island near the village of Doogort. Achill Island is an island on the west coast of Ireland, joined to the mainland by a bridge. Slievemore hill rises above the strand, though it was covered in fog the day we were there.

The sun battled hard but the fog won out in the end.

Still a lovely place to visit and one to which we hope to return.
