Weekly Photo Challenge – Delicate

I like this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate.

I love it when we’re given a theme that leaves room for interpretation.

For our own eyes to translate, word to picture.

Much of Ireland’s landscape is quite rugged. There is an abundance of stone. For example, The island of Inis Mór (Inishmore), one of the Aran Islands, is barely 12 square miles, yet it has around 900 miles of stone walls covering it! Stone is everywhere.

People tend to think of green when they think of Ireland. It’s true, it is a green place. It’s a good thing too because of all the grey, rugged rock. Green and grey offset each other.

There is a place here called The Burren. On your way to the Burren you pass green fields and beautiful landscape. Once you enter the Burren it becomes another world. Limestone fissures consume the landscape. Soil is scarce. Green is scarce. The Burren is about as rugged as you can get.

But then you look down and you start to see the most delicate of things. It’s quite a sight. Rugged and delicate. Sharing their space…

  16. Lovely photos. We went to Ireland in 2008. I particularly love the Burren – it was almost like being on another planet! My ancestors are from County Clare :-)
