In the recent posts I have provided a number of shots taken around North Cork which very much reflect autumn moving into winter. On the green Island of Ireland it is said that it is possible to have four seasons in a single day. From my own experiences, I would say that this is very much true and here I give you a photograph that best captures that feeling.
The photo was taken on Achill Island (on the same day as the photographs that featured in Keem Strand and Grace O’Malley’s War Tower). In part of the photograph you can see the bright blue sky reminiscent of summer, while a curtain of rain reminiscent of a bad spring or Autumn day makes its way across the ocean. Temperatures and weather across the photograph seem to cover all the seasons and just out of sight to the right, the hills plunging down to the ocean are capped in snow. A most extraordinary day, but perhaps not such an extraordinary day for Ireland.
