I submitted this photo as part of my photography homework this week. Our teacher liked it but wasn't mad on the trees growing out of Thea's head. I wouldn't have even noticed that but I love getting constructive criticism as it's such an opportunity to learn and improve my skills 👩🏫. I've just uploaded a family vlog from the weekend which includes our hike to the Hell Fire Club, shopping and a sit down chat about my current struggles with breastfeeding my toddler🤱. Link is in my bio up top 🔝
Again, here is yet another photo from my favourite road, the Windy Gap, here in Mayo, just down the road from us.. It is beautiful everywhere you look and has many different moods depending on the weather, time of day and time of year. Because much is bog land with it's rich coloured plant life and mountain and hills covered in different colours of heather, the land is forever changing colours and shades. There is also sheep everywhere, especially in the road, which is one of their favourite places to snooze, because the tarmac is warm on their tummy's. With the ewes loving to bring their little lambs on to the road, they seem quite used to and comfortable on the road, since they too were brought out on the road as tiny babies. They are road savvy, but much too relaxed feeling assured no car will hit them. But I have sadly seen some beautiful sheep dead on the side of the road, but not often. They know cars are always passing and stay calm and lay there as you go by, or will nonchalantly move out of the way of the car as we wait. Most of the people that travel this road are like us, locals, and no to take it easy and to drive slow and with care.
Most of the road has fences along the side, which was sparse when we first moved here. But it doesn't seem to make any difference, they come right through on to the road when they want. But it does hold in the cattle on this Windy Gap, including the gorgeous Highland cattle. It is my hope that you folks who follow me here on Instagram, don't get tired of the scenes of the Windy Gap. This one came out looking very painterly. Being an artist, I don't mind this at all. God bless you all!
