Irish Landscapes – Suir Valley, County Tipperary, call of the far away hills

Shadows fall on the Valley
Day is done and the sun
Is slowly fading out of sight
I can hear, oh, so clear
A call that echoes in the night
Yes, I hear sweet and clear
The call of the faraway hills

There’s no rest on the Valley
There’s no rest for a restless soul
That just was born to roam
Who can say, maybe way out there
My heart may find a home
And I hear sweet and clear
The call of the faraway hills

There are trails I’ve never seen
And my dreams are getting old
And beyond the sunset
There are brand new paths
When a new dream or two
May just be one star away

I must obey the call of the faraway hills

Walking in the mountains and forests above Clonmel in county Tipperary is one on the most enjoyable things I can find myself doing. The views over the river Suir as it flows through the town of Clonmel down towards the port of Waterford are just wonderful.

The Saturday Morning I took these two images, the weather was very mixed with rain showers never that far away, the sun however was breaking through the clouds and producing rainbows every now and then.

These two photos are amongst the best I got during the walk.
