LAST NIGHT’S WEST KERRY SUNSET

sunset and wild roses_9307Yes, I have taken many photos of sunsets, many of which are previously posted in my blog.  https://helenebrennan.wordpress.com/tag/sunset/  But it’s so very hard to resist, when you see from your window the red-golden tree tops in the garden, and you know this is a special one – again. These special sunsets don’t happen often, but they happen a number of times in the year.

It isn’t always convenient to be out taking photos at these ‘special’ times. Last night, for instance I had just returned from a strenuous row on the sea, and wanted nothing more than to sit and relax.  I tried to ignore the reddening of the sky outside, but eventually I had to just run outside before the colours disappeared.  As usual in these situations, I just grabbed the images, no time for the tripod or anything like that.

Here is Part 2 of this post with some more photos taken around the area of the Stavrovouni Monastery and the mountain of the same name, in Cyprus.  Many people visit the  area because the monastery is an interesting and important religious site, but here are also amazing walks around the area and the views are just gorgeous. it’s well worth the trip for the amazing landscape here.
