Turner’s Colours in Co. Waterford ~ Gatherings from Ireland # 48

I had made arrangements with myself to soak  in the last weekend of this year’s  Turner Exhibition at the National Gallery of Ireland  in Dublin on Saturday and Sunday. However, life got in the way and I never made it.

In the midst of everything, I just  couldn’t get Turner and his seascapes, with those magnificent colours of his, out of my mind. So I decided that the next best thing to being at the exhibition was to work with the lovely coast that I have all around me here in Co. Waterford.

It has been a stormy few days all I could do while the greyness lingered was to collect Turner-coloured stones from the beach.  Then, I managed to capture a sunset and this morning was sheer ecstasy as Tramore saw the most beautiful sunrise at high tide in stormy seas.

So, I hope you enjoy this little selection:
