Loch Veagh, Glenveagh National Park

At home, I wait for good weather to kayak, or to go for a walk, or to take photos. On a trip, I take what I get.

On this day at Glenveagh National Park in County Donegal, I get recurring bursts of wind and rain interspersed with sunny periods. It makes for dramatic exposures, but no shots of reflections of the surrounding hills in the Loch — the iconic image from this area, judging from the photos featured on the official website. Taken, I assume, by someone who was more-or-less at home and who had the luxury of waiting for blue skies and no wind to ruffle the water.

    Very nice, and nicer than the day!

    Irish weather can be unbelievably bleak. Though no worse, I suppose, than Red Deer in a blizzard.

      Jim – I don’t know what that wet would be like in winter temps, but I think I’d adjust to it better than our extremes. We were just in Kingston in scorching temps (26C, 77% humidity, and cloudless skies), and I know only too well what our winters can be like.
