THE BEARA PENINSULA HAS SO MUCH BEAUTY – RUGGED AND YET LUSH

DSCF2705

Today we went for a drive in the Beara Peninsula, it was a perfect day for it.  We left Skibbereen this early without even going to our usual farmers market for bread, vegetables and such like.  The sun was shining and it was a beautiful late summer day.  I was happy to see still so much Fuchsia which is still flowering profusely in the hedgerows adding lovely blotches of red to the landscape.

A rugged landscape warmed by late summer colours.  The mountains here are part of the Slieve Miskish mountain range.

During the winter this landscape changes colour and becomes a beautiful variety of browns.

The sky was quite interesting on the way home, this is part of Hungry Hill which is another great mountain of the Beara Peninsula.
