Julie-Anne and I had a holiday away in Leenane a while back, and took a drive out into the wilderness. At one point (shown) I had to pul over as the landscape was so nice. The clouds were really low, cutting off the tops of the mountains, which were really not that tall.

 

The wind would cut you in two there, but I’m used to that living near a lake, and of course in the same county. Galway is such a huge county it is great – you can see such different landscapes in different parts. It is a real haven for artists who enjoy working outdoors in the wilds and like rugged landscapes.
