Lens-Artists Challenge #95 – ALL WET

When it rains on vacation, sometimes you just have to make the best of it.  A little rain in Croatia didn’t stop us from donning ponchos and seeing some of the countryside around Dubrovnik.

And when traveling to Ireland, some rain is just a given.  We got a bit wet on a misty walk near Lough Annascaul; it was a “soft day” as they would call it.


The sheep didn’t seem to mind it.  And it was worth it for the views.  Though seeing a waterfall in the rain strikes me as a bit funny!

You can find more wetness at the original Lens-Artist challenge.



Lens-Artists Challenge #52 – Serenity

When I think of serenity, I always think of water.  Smooth, calm water, or slowly trickling water give me a sense of peace.

In Croatia, we visited the Konavoski Dvori restaurant, which was very peaceful despite (or because of?) the rain.  Any meal with this view will always be charming.

From Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry.

One of the first words that comes to mind with liquid is “flowing.”  Movement.  But it’s not always smooth.  Waterfalls have a beautiful kind of tumult that’s captivating.

We saw this waterfall toward the end a bike tour of the beautiful Killarney National Park.  My legs were total jelly at that point, but there was no way I was missing this view.

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O


From Lough Annascaul, Dingle Peninsula.

We had a lot of H2O during this hike.  Aside from the lovely views of the lake and waterfall, we had a nice Irish misty rain and were all quite wet by the time we were done.

I love this shot of the waterfall because you can see the sheep climbing around on the rocks to the right side.  They certainly seemed more sure of themselves out in the elements than I did!
