Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #41: Delicious

We’re back to Europe this week, specifically Ireland and the glorious food we ate there.  I love taking pictures of my food but I don’t usually post them anywhere because nobody cares.  We had so many good meals in Ireland, though.  In Dublin we had Spanish and Indian food in addition to pub fare, plus a lovely tea at Gallaher’s.  In Gougane Barra we had one of our fancier meals that was delicious as well as aesthetically pleasing.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cheeky

From Gougane Barra.

I’ve featured the lovely location of Gougane Barra before in photo challenges (like Textures), but I haven’t yet shown its cheeky side.  Our breakfast at the hotel, for example, was very happy to see us, and one of the building sports a cute old Guinness ad.  We found such charming touches all over Ireland amid the more serious history lessons and inspiring landscapes.  I think the Irish have a wonderful sense of humor!

St. Finbarr’s Oratory has such a beautiful setting it’s no surprise that it’s frequently used for weddings.  It’s situated on a kind of peninsula out in a lake, where legend says that St. Finbarr built a monastery.

I love the contrast of the natural textures of leaves and grass next to the stone of the oratory, and I especially love the texture of the lake water as it’s rippled by the breeze.

This was once a rock wall–well, technically it still is.  It’s just been overtaken by the beautiful moss and foxglove.  Nature finds a way to improve on the work of man. 🙂

The mirroring lake at Gougane Barra shows how peaceful this place is.  This is the view from near the oratory looking back towards our hotel.

I also wanted to include another fun mirror-like picture from our trip to Ireland: my mom and I had matching shoes.

This was taken as we were crossing the River Shannon on the ferry.  I think I’m on the left?  I’m honestly not sure, but that’s what the perspective indicates.
