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