Those places Thursday: Some of 'our' Ireland in Stills

Thinking about those places in Ireland which mean the most to my family, I decided to put together this photo album of sorts. Some of the photos are of places which had a major impact on our family history, others represent brief moments in time, and some simply feature beautiful scenery. I love the country of my forbears, Ireland. When I am in Ireland it feels comfortable and familiar; when I am away from her shores, I dream about my return.

  2. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this "album." Wow! I particularly like the first picture of the Cliffs of Moher. Stunning, crisp, and I love the effect with the corner of the fence in the foreground.

  4. I was not REALLY amazed by the waterfall until I saw the size of the people. Beautiful pics.
