Summer has Arrived… Postcards from Ireland

When the sun shines in Ireland, there’s no place quite like it. Fortunately, there has been a good bit of sun over the last two weeks. Here are a few pics I snapped while wandering around…

  1. Nice photos. I prefer it when I don’t see rain clouds in the sky, but they certainly make photos more interesting.

  2. lovely photos, Corey — thanks for taking us along on your journey. I’m most often in Ireland in winter, not so often flowers in bloom then so it’s fine to see them through your eyes.

  3. Please keep sending these! Your photos are beautiful, and until I can get back there again, they’re a good substitute for the real thing :-)

  4. Gorgeous Pictures! Thanks for sharing.
    We here in Ireland still can’t believe the luck we had with the weather over the past 2 -3 weeks! The beaches here on the east coast were packed. Everything just looks so much nicer when the sun is shining – one could say Ireland is the most beautiful place on Earth when the sun is out ;-)

  5. lovely shots…even though i’ve
    just been back 3 weeks i miss ireland terribly…thanks for the ireland fix…

  6. Fab photos, the weather has been so fantastic over the past few weeks that all I seem to be doing is snapping pics of wonderful clear skies!
