The Glory of Tramore at High-Tided Sunrise

The Promenade, Tramore, Co. Waterford.

This was the delight that greeted me when I arrived back home to Tramore this morning after a very early and rather grumpy trip into Waterford City.

What heaven!

  1. That’s a superb photo Jean. Your eye was in. But then as Antoine DeSaint-Exupery said – “It is with that the heart that one sees clearly; what is essential is invisible to the eye”.

  2. Just gorgeous, Jean. I’m tempted to say it reminds me of the way the autumn sun hits the abandoned wasteground by the building site along the Luas tracks, but that would be a lie, so I won’t.

    1. Tara, I think the Autumn sun can work magic with almost anything or any place. So maybe if you look a bit harder at that wasteground at sunrise, you might be surprised!

    1. Hi Tric, thanks for your kind words.
      Must say the weather has been pretty kind to us here in the Sunny South East compared to a lot of other places over the summer. I always think of rain as the reason for our lovely greens. Guess we can’t have it every way!

  3. Isnt it wonderful how the camera can catch and relay the beauty around us, or the sorrow, or the anger, or the hurt. May be its being able to create that distance via the lens that helps us understand and appreciate…I don’t know…and yes, I’m procrastinating again…back to the Lit Review now. But seriously Jean, thank you for sharing your wonderful photos…I have been thinking about returning home to Ireland and what it would mean for me and your photos help….back to the books:):)

    1. Olga, thanks for such a thought-provoking comment.
      I’m glad the photos are helping you in your deliberations. Good luck with them. Ireland is waiting for you …
