Gougane Barra Church & Lake

During my Patrick’s Day visit to Gougane Barra forest, I first stopped off at St Fintan’s Oratory near the forest entrance. While I am not Catholic, I can appreciate the beauty of the small church, especially in a setting as dramatic as the rocky hills, the forest and lake.

Day trips like this make me realise how lucky I am to live within close distance to somewhere as beautiful as West Cork, and looking at these photographs makes me eager to be the tourist more frequently in my own country. Armed with a camera and a desire to see Ireland with fresh eyes, I can only hope I can appreciate and capture the beauty of the Irish landscape properly.
