Stradbally Cove tends to be the end-point for many of my jaunts along the Copper Coast here in Co. Waterford. I thought I was alone there last Monday when I was seizing what felt like the first day of Summer.
But a horse and rider were soaking up, and creating, the atmosphere of a place which always fills me with a deep sense of gratitude for the endless possibilities that nature provides.
Somehow, it felt wrong to disturb their peace. Theirs was a solitude that was obviously precious ~ one of those captured moments that sustains the soul.

Such a beautiful, tranquil scene. P
It was magical! Thanks for writing, j
Sigh….. so lovely!
I thought so too! It was strange to feel so much that the place belonged to the horse and rider. I think it was because they blended in so perfectly.
That is a photo that speaks a thousand words! Thank you so much it i heaven!
That is a lovely shot. B/w so often works well. Those photographers of yesteryear (inc. your father) would have killed for the opportunity to shoot in colour, but somehow those old shots wouldn’t be the same.
Thanks Roy! I agree with you about black and white. Glad to say that my father had the opportunity to use both but never saw colour as ‘better’ than black and white ~ just different and often more suitable for particular images.
