Hi Trekkers,

Haven't been here for a long time. But now I'd like to show an exceptional place to you all, the Gougane Barra Forest Park near Ballingeary, Co. Cork, Ireland, which is located ca. 45 minutes drive from my hometown, Macroom. It's a national heritage of Ireland, with beautiful coniferal forests and a 17th century monastery on the island of the small lake. There are many hiker trails in the area, so it's an ideal place for just a small meditation - or even for an interesting hiking trip. Please see more infos by clicking on the link above.

Photo: taken from the yard of the monastery in the island, shutter priority exposure mode. PP: slight level adjustment. On the workshop photo you can see the lake, the island and the hotel from a mountain top.

Thanks for looking, have a nice weekend!

Hello Laszlo,
A wonderful landscape view of Gougane Barra Forest Park near Ballingeray Ireland. I have some friends at church who will be leaving in a few months to live in Mallow, which isn't all the far from here.
When I think of Ireland I think of rich greenery, and your image shows just that. I love the beautiful hues of green found on the hillsides, meadows and brooks. The reflection in the water is gorgeous and I like the way the cloudy sky casts it's shadow on the rocky outcroppings below. Composition is wonderful and entire frame is in sharp focus. Simply beautiful!!

Ciao Laszlo, fascinating landscape, beautiful reflections, excellent clarity, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Exellent landscape Laszlo , a beautiful place to be.

Thanks for sharing.
