In parts of Ireland people believe that the spirits of the dead still live within the ruins of their homes.
Who am I to disagree with them. This shot taken through a gap in the trees with a telephoto lens and shows a small stone homestead with out houses built onto the main house. It possibly had a thatched roof when built and since this is hill country it would have been hard to live of the land here. Today it’s mostly sheep on the hills with some cattle on land that has been cleared and reseeded for better grazing.
Welcome back to another update on doing the 2017 Irish photo rally . More info about it and a map with the photo rally points is here. This one is number 21 on the map and is in County Sligo and is called The Scenically Set Ruin in Gleniff. I was lucky to get these photo’s has the rain was just starting and with in a few minutes it was a very wet ride home. Here is the photo of the point 21.
Yes the bike must be in there, part of the rules.. And now the scenic part, this next shot was taken from the other side of the bike.
At this point the rain was starting to fall, so camera away and followed the wet road through Gleniff.

This viaduct is in Dromore, County Down, Northern Ireland. It stands 74 feet and is a Victorian viaduct which once carried the GNRI railway across the Lagan river. The railway closed in 1956 and the viaduct is now disused.
I see this little parish church on my way home from work. It sits on a elevated site down a small side road. This shot way taken from the road with the church framed with leaves from the trees lining the roadside.
