Written by
Rural lanes in Ireland or Green Roads are remnants of old, sometimes ancient, paths through the countryside.

Here, one of the first sunsets of 2021 from…
The shortest day of the year has arrived in Ireland and the winter solstice occurred at just after 10:00 today, December 21st.

Here, the trees have lost most of their leaves those not carried by the flow of the water remaining on the rocks and riverbanks.
