Low Tide in Sligo



just alongside the Spanish Armada memorial to 1200 Spanish sailors lost in a storm just off this point on the coast, and a few hundred saved.
The west of Ireland has the most dramatic tides I've ever seen. A long, slow enormous tide suits the place and her history and her people, seems to me.

  • Glad to see that you are back and yes, the more you go to Ireland and send out the photos to us all, the more I know that my grandfather's homeland calls to me and beacons for me to go and see what he left behind...thanks

  • It looks so peaceful. The horses set off the landscape in contemplation. Lovely picture.

  • Oh, donet, yes, I see you in Ireland - the fairy forests alone are enough to send you there.

    Anil, thank you. Peaceful is the right word.

  • Ireland made me homesick for New Zealand ...
