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!
