What a beautiful country. I always love traveling just at the beginning of the winter season. The light is ten times more dramatic, far less tourists to contend with and the mood is always kind of more festive with the oncoming of the December holidays. Last year I walked the streets of Auschwitz almost alone, saw the festivities of the holidays in town squares like Berlin and Vienna and Warsaw. It’s just more amazing than the blue sky and green grass of summer in my opinion. So this year was a great follow up. The skies poured on us often but left such amazing scenes to photograph. You just don’t get that in summer. So please enjoy my somewhat touristy photos and more artistic visions that happened during my time in Ireland.
