Stone Circles in the Snow, Ireland

Snow - it's been a snowy winter here in Ireland.

As I've written before, and will no doubt again, it doesn't snow as much as you might think in Ireland but when it does snow it doesn't stick for very long.

It's always a delight to photograph in the snow given its true ephemeral nature on Ireland's warm and green landscape.

Here the stone circles, for many centuries covered by the bogland that today surrounds the place.

This site is home to alignments and burial chambers that date back 5,000 years.

Today of course it is difficult to imagine that people might have made such a place their home, there are few if any houses in the vicinity and the farmland is hardly the most fertile on the Emerald Isle.

I think it looks incredible in any weather but especially beautiful in snow, don't you think?
