Weekly Photo Challenge: Place in the World

From Connemara, Ireland.

 

The view from the back of Ballynahinch Castle has a way of making you feel like everything is all right in the world.  Everything from the majestic Ballynahinch River to the smallest cluster of violas seems to fit perfectly.

Nature and culture in harmony, you see, Lizzy. Wildness and artifice, and all in the one perfect county. –Mr. Gardiner, Pride and Prejudice (1995)

Ok, so Mr. Gardiner was talking about Derbyshire, but I think the same idea applies here 🙂

    Well all I can say is that both your photo(s) of Ireland and the scenery in Derbyshire are both beautiful. I can vouch for Derbyshire, as when I was a youngling I spent a week there camping. Which reminds me I need to dig out my tent and put it to use again soon.

      I would love to visit Derbyshire! And go back to Ireland. Camping sounds lovely. I hope you get to go soon!

        Hi there, if you ever get to visit the Blue John Mines and Treak Cliff Caverns are amazing. There are even musical stalagmites (there is a formation of rocks which looks like a set of bowling pins but when they are struck each one gives off a different note!)

    You can say that again. I looked at this photo and suddenly felt myself relax. It’s so picturesque, so peaceful… Beautiful choice for this week. 🙂
