The last of today’s sunlight was just perfect ….
This evening I took a walk along some of our local lanes , up in the hills near the village of Windgap, Kilkenny. The sun hung low in the sky an hour before sunset and filled the fields with vivid greens and long shadows from the hedgerow trees, just such a wonderful sense of early springtime which is just around the corner now, you can feel it just waiting to burst through…..
This is the best time of year with so many great months ahead of us ……
Walking across a field at Coolehill
Walking across the fields of Coolehill,
Ash, Briar, hawthorn, holly, and hazel
A wall around the field that your in.
is a big blue sky, with its layers of soft clouds,
held up by the rows of oaks.
A sheltered patch of sunshine:
and stand in silence
and close your eyes
and feel the warmth on your face,
whilst a blackbird sings.

The woods at Windgap, County Kilkenny, sit above the valley we live in. A walk through the woods offers some wonderful views of the Landscape below.
The wood is also the home to the local communications tower, high in the woodlands it is hard to reach by car and one evening last week I noticed the service people driving through the fields to get to the building below the tower.
I feel that the contrast between the landscape and this tower is what I really hope to show here, but of course with out it I would not be able to show you these images?
