Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

From Dingle Peninsula.

Remember that beehive hut from the “Spare” Photo Challenge?  Today’s picture is a view from the inside.  These huts were made with no mortar, like a stone igloo.  But there needs to be some ventilation at the top!  This hut was quite tall enough to stand up in, but our whole group had trouble fitting in at once.

The monks who lived in these had a truly spare existence; they felt that avoiding material things and the comforts of the world would help bring them closer to God.

    What a fabulous reminder – I haven’t been to the Dingle Peninsular in nearly 30 years …. this shot is stunning and a very good prompt for me that it’s been too long 🙂

      Thank you, and glad to take you back down memory lane. I loved the whole Dingle peninsula, just amazing. Definitely one of my favorite parts of my visit to Ireland!

        The drive from Bantry to Dingle is like someone pressed fast-forward on the remote as the ever-changing landscape – rocky here, lush green there, mountains giving way to flatlands that evoke a moonscape. Just incredible :). Keep the pictures coming – you have a gift 🙂
