Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

This old white Bog pony

This set of images was taken at (Derryhick, Co.Mayo) above Derryhick lake – where we were staying for a week, I was out walking Molly our Golden retriever when we passed a field on our left.

I noticed this old white Bog pony way in the distance and she really took my attention so here she is, I have come back in my mind to this moment a lot for some reason as I hope she’s good and still walking this amazing landscape.

    Reminds me of the romantic movement in art history and my own trips to the Aran islands , oh those were the years 01 to 04. And that poor old donkey. With its miserable. Expression on its tired old face on Inis Mor, always gazing lonsomey at the passer by .

    Lovely photos especially that first one with the light outlining the head and neck. Is that purple plant heather? It reminds me of Scotland.

  6. I, too, wondered if the soft purple plant was heather. Lovely!!
