the last picture from Ireland - for a while

I am standing just below the beacon which marks the entrance to Baltimore harbour looking out towards Sherkin Island and that little glimpse of Clear Island well behind it. After that it's the Atlantic all the way to the west. It is very windy and the little ferry to Sherkin will only go once today. 

The last time I stood here was on a very hot and sunny day and all that was behind my back while I took a picture of a grinning R in shorts and walking boots leaning on the beacon, holding our 6-months old baby.

  1. Thanks so much for this series, Sabine. Through your eyes, I'm seeing an Ireland I've never seen before, and yet it seems so familiar.

    Love the image from your memory of R holding your daughter when she was a baby.
