December by the lake

Well Its December and the Winter has truly started, the Weather in Ireland over the weekend was very overcast with sun-light being very hard to find.

I have been wondering how to show an Irish winter in my pictures, wondering what parts of the landscape best show the effects of the cold, grey and damp days ahead of us and the idea of getting down close to water came to me.

Ireland is a country blessed with many rivers, lakes and a wonderful Coastline so over the next weeks I will post many of these locations here and do my best to try to show the atmosphere of these great landscape location during the month of December.

  1. I like the one with just a few leaves sticking up from the water. Simple and evocative.

      The size of these boats matched the lake but being out in them on a choppy day would be something else !!!! πŸ™‚
